Lets have em.
I'm a big fan of The Muppets. The TV shows, the old movies, the new movies, the Walt Disney World 3D show, pretty much all of it.
Well, they are going to have a new TV show this Fall, and I for one, am looking forward to it and all the memes it is sure to create.
It may be time to light the lights.ABC is filming a proof of concept for a revival of The Muppets, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.The Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady is co-writing the script for a pilot presentation that sources say could be unspooled at May's upfront presentation to Madison Avenue advertisers. Sources tell THR that the project, if all goes well, could go straight to series.
In tragic Muppet news, Jerry Nelson (voice of The Count, among others), has died at the age of 78.
A little info and plenty of memories via the link. RIP.
Per Greg Smith's revelation that Goldman calls certain clients 'muppets', our endearing tradition now has a new cultural reference. Discuss. Also, "rip their faces off" is not entirely Goldman's creation either.
