NEWS UPDATE: September 16, 2010

\Cat Cora, Angelo, and Fozzie Bear appeared on CBS’s The Early Show yesterday morning to promote The Muppet Kitchen with Cat Cora. On the show they made some hamburgers or something, but the real fun was watching Fozzie and Angelo completely run over the interviewer in true Muppet fashion. A truly hilarious appearance and I don’t think I’ve seen Fozzie in better form in a long time!

Everyone’s favorite super monster, Super Grover, posted a new video to Grover’s Facebook page where he offers tips about what makes a super hero super. The video is completely charming and showcases Grover’s cute and super sides. Season 41 of Sesame Street starts September 27th!

A rumor is floating around one of the Disney Parks forums that a Muppet Meet-n-Greet attraction may be in the works for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. According to said rumor, the attraction will feature an actual, puppet-version of Kermit the Frog for fans and visitors to the Disney theme park to interact with. No word yet on how this will be accomplished voice-wise, but if they can have a human-sized Mickey Mouse talking to guests with his real voice, I don’t think we should put anything past the Disney Imagineers.

And, finally, Dave Goelz and a “special guest” will be coming to the St. Louis County Library near St. Louis, Missouri on October 1st! Dave will be hosting Muppet History 101 as part of the Muppets, Music and Magic: Jim Henson’s Legacy series put on by The Jim Henson Legacy. The event starts at 7:00 PM (doors open at 6:00) and goes until 9:00 PM. The event includes Muppet material you won’t see anywhere else including early TV appearances, commercials, and much more. A question and answer session with Dave wraps up the evening. It’s sure to be an amazing night and Ryan Dosier (yours truly) is going to be there! Let us know if you’ll be there too or be sure to say hello when you see me!
