One More For The Road: Muppets Most Wanted Super Bowl Trailer

For their Super Bowl spot, Muppets Most Wanted decided to keep the twitter review thing going a little bit longer. I was hoping they’d go for a musical number. Shucks.

New Pictures From The Set Of Muppets Most Wanted

We’re a bit jealous. Collider (and others) got to visit the set of Muppets Most Wanted, the follow up to 2011′s The Muppets. They also got to interview Miss Piggy and Kermit. Hmph! We will live vicariously through them while looking at these behind-the-scenes shots from Disney.

Ladies and Gentlemen: Tom Hiddleston Meets Cookie Monster

Here is the point where I remind everyone that while this represents the serendipity of PBS approaching Tom Hiddleston for a segment, Disney owns both the Muppets and Marvel, so they could do this kind of thing all the time if they wanted.

(Just not with Sesame Street or Fraggle Rock characters as they are owned by the Children’s Television Workshop and Viewers Like You the Jim Henson Company.)

If You’ve Ever Felt the Need to Reference the Muppets: The Periodic Table of Muppets

Artist Mike Baboon has collected and organized many of the Muppets into this very comprehensive and informative chart.  Each Muppet’s square contains their primary Muppeteer, the abbreviated name in the Muppet’s nose color, year and production of origin, and hair or hat color in the borders.  Now if we could just find Beaker, he could explain the science to us.

You Can Positively Feel The Excitement on the Set of The Muppets… Again! [VIDEO]

Please note that I am only being half sarcastic. If I ever got the chance to exchange so much as two words with one of the Muppets, as Ricky Gervais is doing here, I would very likely keel over and die.

Let The Jim Henson Creature Shop Teach You How To Make Puppets [VIDEO]

The talented Holly Conrad and Jessica Merizan have their own show on The Nerdist channel where they usually teach cosplay tips or other DIY projects. This time around they had the opportunity to learn how to make puppets from Julie Zobel of the Jim Henson Creature Shop. No fair!! But really, it’s pretty awesome and I’m super jealous and they’re hilarious.

We Can All Quit: Sesame Street Did A Spoof Called Upside Downton Abbey [VIDEO]

Will Sesame Street ever stop being awesome? We think not. Especially because you know their target audience won’t exactly get this or appreciate Muppet Carson nearly as much as we do. I can hear the staff meeting now: “Should we do a Downton Abbey spoof? They are on the same network as us, after all.” “I don’t know, it might go over kids’ heads.” “Screw it, this is gonna be great.” At least we all learned an important lesson about gravity.

Jim Henson & Frank Oz Had A Nice Chat In 1989. Kermit & Cookie Monster Were Also There. [VIDEO]

Just hearing the names Jim Henson and Frank Oz together in the same sentence makes me giddy so you can imagine my excitement upon finding this video. The appearance was made at the Puppeteers of America national festival at MIT in Boston in 1989 and an introduction tagged on by Oz a few years after Henson’s death. In their informal conversation they cover everything from Sesame Street to The Dark Crystal to Little Shop of Horrors. It’s a long video but certainly worth the watch if you’re a fan of either of these talented men.

Christoph Waltz May Dance His Way Into the Muppets Sequel After All

My heart broke a little bit when it was announced that Ty Burrell was replacing Christoph Waltz as one of the (human) leads of the next Muppet movie. The Hollywood Reporter noted at the time that Waltz’s schedule kept him from playing a large role in the movie, but luckily his schedule isn’t so packed that he won’t still be showing up in a cameo role.

Neil Patrick Harris Wants to Stick His Hand Where?! In the Latest Episode of Neil’s Puppet Dreams [VIDEO]

Neil Patrick Harris faces off against a squirrel monkey, bunny police officers and “Puppet Chris Hansen” in To Catch a Puppeteer, the latest episode of Neil’s Puppet Dreams. (In which Neil Patrick Harris dreams in puppets, if you didn’t know already. C’mon, get with it.)

It is now my headcanon that puppets vacation at a discount resort called Frugal Rock. No one can take that from me.
