Fans of the Muppets

Anything and everything Jim Henson

Let's party!
The Muppets is out on DVD today!

So, fellow Muppet fans, when are you going to purchase yours? :D

Also, The Muppets will be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at around 11:30AM PST for their work.  The star will be on Hollywood Boulevard, just outside of the Disney-run El Capitan Theater. Jim Henson and Kermit the Frog also have stars on the Walk of Fame. 

Congratulations to them!

"The Muppets" to have a sequel!
From Vulture

A deal has been reached with The Muppetsdirector James Bobin and original co-writer Nicholas Stoller to pen a sequel, but insiders also tell us that Stoller's original collaborator, Jason Segel, won't be returning to the keyboard. Segel, a star of How I Met Your Mother — now in its eighth season — has a burgeoning film career, and Disney insiders tell Vulture that between his commitment to the CBS sitcom, his other feature-writing efforts, and promotional work for Five Year Engagement (due out this coming April) and Judd Apatow's This Is Forty (in December), there won't be time to collaborate on a Muppets sequel.

Shame, really: Segel and Stoller first pitched their idea for a Muppets sequel to Disney in 2008, just before Segel had proven his genius for blood-sucking puppetry in Forgetting Sarah MarshallWe suspect he'll be missed. He is, after all, a muppet of a man.

A Segel spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment, but we're told by our Disney insiders that there's still a chance that the actor may star in a Muppets sequel, depending on how the Stoller-Bobin script turns out.

I'm gonna miss Jason Segel so hard but still, you guys. Let's hope he at least gets to star! 

It needs to be said...

Too, too funny.

Muppets take jab at Fox News.

Seriously, guys. This is too good not to share.

Remember when Fox News attacked The Muppets for pushing a "liberal agenda" by having an oil company CEO as the villain?

An Oscar nominaton!
This blew my mind but made me SO happy... "Man or a Muppet" is nominated for the best original song Oscar.

Awesome. I wonder if they'll perform it?

Sorry it hasn't been too active...
Trust your feelings.
I'm over at Tumblr now, really.

Even made a Muppet blog.

But here's Robin and Kermit on Jimmy Fallon. I think Matt's Robin is pretty good. :)

The embedded video went away. Thanks, NBC. So here's a link.

106 Muppet Christmas Carol icons.

Textless icons; edit if you want. Credit is nice but not required. Commenting is even nicer (but also not required). Hotlinking makes for sad Christmases.

There may be text-only quote icons coming soon, but I'm leaving shortly to spend the holidays with my sister and wanted to get these up before I left.


( it's a good beginning, it's creepy and kinda -- hoo hoo! -- spooky )
