Muppets "in" Space jars from Welch's
Jocelyn Ferran, Greg Rohr, and Phillip Chapman
Continuing a tradition that started 45 years ago, Welch's has launched Muppets in Space, its newest series of collectable jelly glasses.
of the six glasses features a different Muppet character in outer space.
Dressed in space suits are Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal, Gonzo
the Great, Rizzo the Rat, and Fozzie Bear. Also appearing on other
Welch's Jam and Jelly products is an offer for free Muppets in Space wall
clings with the purchase of any two Welch's Spreads items.
What is interesting... is that these glasses were released 14 months before the movie is to hit theaters, and according to a press release in Variety that came out yesterday (see below), the title of the movie has changed to Muppets from Space. If the movie's title has really changed you may want to snap these things up! Welch's may reprint the jars to say "Muppets from Space" in the very near future. Of course, this may have been a mistake by Variety, because The Jim Henson Company is still calling the film Muppets in Space.
