NEWS UPDATE: December 15, 2012
Kermit the Frog (you may have heard of him) stopped by the VH1 offices while he was in New York City to be on their morning show VH1 Big Morning Buzz Live! He visited to give some relationship advice (and do some harmless flirting) with host Carrie Keagan. It’s a charming, fun little interview so enjoy the video below!
As we’ve mentioned before, the Muppets are returning to WWE Raw later this month (specifically on Wednesday, December 19th at 9:00pm/8:00pm central time on the USA Network) for their WWE Tribute to the Troops. Well, as part of the promotion for the appearance Miss Piggy appeared in a video on the WWE YouTube page with rapper Flo Rida. It’s odd, but it happened, so here it is!
Earlier this week Sesame Street made headlines as they promoted their newly released resources for families coping with divorce. As many Muppet fans know, this isn’t the first time the show tried to tackle this tough topic. Back in the early 1990s, they tried an episode featuring Snuffy’s parents getting divorced. It tested incredibly poorly and was completely scrapped. But thankfully, they tried again and this time (in my opinion) it worked beautifully. The producers chose Abby Cadabby to teach kids about divorce as she talked with Elmo, Rosita, and Gordon about her parents being divorced. My words can’t really do the resources justice, so head on over to the official site for Little Children, Big Challenges: Divorce to watch and read through the content yourself.
Finally, our friends at Top Hat Sasquatch have given Muppet fans an early Christmas present this year with MP3 versions of all of the songs from the classic special A Muppet Family Christmas. You can download the soundtrack for free from the site and gain some fantastic songs to make your days merry and bright this holiday season! Thanks to Top Hat Sasquatch for putting the soundtrack together and alerting us about it!
