News Update: April 3, 2014

APRIL 3, 2014

The fine folks at Toyota have released an onslaught of hysterical new videos featuring the Muppets and Terry Crews in the Toyota Highlander in between takes. There a few videos and each of them is funnier than the last. Watch them all below!

Our friends at Threadless have announced the three winners of their Muppets Most Wanted themed t-shirt design contest. The three winning shirts feature Beaker, Sam Eagle, and Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. Each shirt costs $25, but it’s totally worth it. I already bought the Electric Mayhem shirt and it’s seriously awesome. You can buy each of the shirts and see the winning designs on Threadless.

Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge, the awesome new reality competition show from The Jim Henson Company and Syfy has aired two episodes so far, but if you don’t have cable or weren’t home to watch, you might’ve missed them. Well luckily for you, Syfy has both episodes on their website to watch right now! Head on over to the Syfy website to watch both episodes, because you really won’t want to miss them–especially this week’s incredible Skeksis-themed design challenge. If you are in Canada, check out the Space Channel’s website for the episodes.

The Great Gonzo acted as grand marshall for NASCAR’s Auto Club 400 on March 23rd. He got to shout at drivers to start their engines, and thanks to our friends at Muppet Stuff you can watch video footage of it! Check out the video below, and jump to two minutes in for the Gonzo parts.

Telly Monster teamed up with Mashable and our friend Annie Colbert for a fantastically fun new video all about microscopes! Dive in by watching the video below!

Abby Cadabby helped light the Empire State Building blue for Autism Awareness yesterday. Using her magic (and a special blue wand), Abby turned the building blue. Watch video of the lighting ceremony below!
