And Now For Something Completely Different

Neil Patrick Harris’ Puppet YouTube Series Will Probably Offend Less People Than It Amuses


I mean, I’m already offended by the presence of Brian Henson, who I still haven’t forgiven for spoiling all the good jokes at the beginning of every episode on my The Muppet Show DVDs. That’s right, Brian. You’re lucky you made The Muppet Christmas Carol and Treasure Island to balance it out.

    I like puppets, and I think Neil Patrick Harris is a cool guy. So, this looks pretty good.

    Also, I think some of the puppets in the video are from past Jim Henson projects. I definitely saw a Dr. Seuss character there somewhere.

    I honestly can not wait to see this!

    I noticed a few of them are re-uses. They probably don’t have much of a budget. One of them was definitely being used for Nerdist YouTube videos a year ago as a mock presidential candidate.

    I like Brian Henson as a person, I think he runs the company well, and he’s a fine director. But those episode introductions were shockingly bad.

    I’m getting a really awesome Meet the Feebles vibe here.

    Beat me to it! I was going to ask if he has ever seen Peter Jackson’s Meet The Feebles.

    They’ve always been into recycling. Muppets have many of the same puppets as Sesame St or other Hensen pprojects through time.

    Yep. They have whole rooms full of noses and eyes and other body parts that they switch out on a puppet base, too, so a puppet that looks…vaguely familiar…is probably a puppet that’s been recycled with some new features. I even recognized it on Sesame Street once in a while.
