Urgent Muppet News!!!

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you already know I love the Muppets. I mean, really truly, totally, unconditionally, to-the-moon-and-back, saved my life literally, LOVE the Muppets.


So today J found this interview on Splitsider and immediately came and got me and made me watch the clip and read the interview.

OMG (all of them — Allah to Zeus) there is a new documentary where five of the original muppet performers sit down and talk about the experience of being a Muppet. It’s sort of like Dinner for Five without the dinner but all about Muppets.

Is it just me or is this so totally exciting that you just have to go Squeee! and dance around a bit?


The documentary goes live tomorrow March 16th at MuppetGuysTalking.com. You can only see it at that site; it is Not Coming to a Theater Near You! You can mark your calendars if you want but since it’s only one day I think you can just remember.

I just got an email from the website saying thank you and giving me some details. It goes live at 6 am Eastern USA time, (10 a.m. in London, 12:00 noon in Cairo, 9 p.m. in Sydney, and VERY early — at 3 a.m. if you’re on U.S. Pacific Time). I don’t know what this is going to cost but there will be two options: 1) the film, 2) the film plus some “really great extras and bonus items” which is called Below Stage Pass, get it, below stage — where the puppeteers are. You can probably guess which one I want.


UPDATE: Film is now live; I went with option 1) film only. Which cost me a whole $9.97, I downloaded it to my computer so even if my internet goes down or is slow I can still watch it. FYI I couldn’t afford option 2 and besides I’m still not even on Facebook and my monitor doesn’t have a camera and I don’t need to be part of a live online audience. Oh well.

But we have Muppets!!!!!

There are plenty of places out there on the inter-webs to look at design boards. Can you say Pinterest?

I like design boards, they’re fun to put together and are helpful in dialing in a focus on what you really want to accomplish in a given project.

Here is a collage of design boards that I found fascinating way back in the long-long ago.

They are the center gatefold images from a lovely little book about the Muppets.

This little book in fact:

So go out and find some inspiration. Let’s all make something fun and wonderful.

I don’t usually do this, but this is essentially a redirect to a great post of a totally brilliant playset of the Muppet Show Theater designed and built by Lance Cardinal.

It’s just too cool to risk anyone not knowing about it’s existence and thus missing out. Lance also wrote a making-of post here and another here. Enjoy!
