its strange to think of how many classic songs I first heard on the Muppet Show.

...well not as strange as how muppets also taught me basic english, math and social values. I wonder what future archaeologists are going to make of that. I hope they think they were our gods.

Kermit IS our god.

Muppets are awesome for introducing kids to all kinds of thing, including popular culture, helping kids get jokes and references that were way before their time.

Between the muppets and old Warner Brothers cartoons.. I got all my classics, and I hope future civilizations find those and judge us kindly. Bugs and Kermit gave us more culture than any other entities.

Wait, it is 2008, this IS a future civilization.. so see future people, Kermit and Bugs were awesome.

no one makes shows like this anymore

I'm not sure if it's because we're too cynical now or if it would just seem completely out of place. Some stuff just seems right for its time and can't ever be made again.

Jim Henson died. He was the only person who could get million spent upon some cheap foam puppets and MAKE IT WORK.

One way was a religious devotion to being in character. Muppets stayed in character between takes. If the studio caught fire, the muppets would have comically run for safety with the muppeteers kinda scooting along the floor towards the fire exit, still in character.

Alice Cooper said being on the Muppet Show was one of the weirdest experiences of his entire alcoholism.. it was an easy show to guest on because dealing with muppets was like dealingm with actual people. Except they're muppets.

This was excellent. (Squeamish's spelling of "coconut" was not.)

It's the traditional witch doctor spelling. Lemme alone.

Fixed

5 stars for predicting Coolio.
Syd Midnight - 2008-09-15
I could SWEAR that this is a dupe. 5 stars anyways because even if it's a dupe, this is why the Muppets were cool when I was 8, and why they're still cool when I'm 36.

I like to imagine that Jim Henson would despise CGI and never, ever use it. Muppets were better actors than most humans can hope to be.

Sadly, the Henson company has started doing stuff in CG. It looks HORRIBLE.

Sorry to keep replying but I double-clicked to get the Youtube tab and that had 2 versions of this playing out of synch... you have GOT to try that.

Seriously. It's a "round" song.. so get 2 windows playing at once and it's even more awesome.
