Other Documentaries We’d Like To See

Jarrod Fairclough – On March 16th, Frank Oz’s documentary Muppet Guys Talking will be released, joining the small but growing list of documentaries about the world of Muppets.  In 2012 we had Being Elmo, based on Kevin Clash, and then in 2014 Copper Pot Pictures released the gorgeous I Am Big Bird, detailing the career of…

The Top 10 Songs of: Janice

Kieran Moore – If you’re a Muppet fan like me, chances are you’re permanently confused. You see, we think – nay know – the Muppets are cool that’s why we love ‘em, but if we’re honest, as characters they’re actually a pretty big bunch of nerds and weirdoes. However, one of the joys of the Muppets…

The Top 10 Songs of: 1992

Kieran Moore – If you ask a layperson (i.e. someone who doesn’t know the names of Kermit’s aunts and uncles in Muppets at Walt Disney World) what their favorite Muppet production is you’ll likely get one of two responses – “Wow, You’re a Cartoonist” or “Little Muppet Monsters”.

Muppet Retro Reviews: Puppetman Pilot

Puppetman pilot (1987) Alex Guttridge – Thanks to the always brilliant Henson Rarities on Youtube we now have the chance to view a fairly good quality copy of the 1987 sitcom pilot Puppetman (including original adverts, I love when they’re included). Set behind the scenes of a local TV station’s children’s program called ‘Dragon Time’, the…

Top 10 Songs of… Richard Hunt

Kieran Moore – “Mr. Moore, 15 Seconds to Top 10 Mr. Moore.” In a perfect world that’s how my rundowns would start every week, but sadly Scooter doesn’t seem to have been able to find my living room yet. I have, however, managed to find several Scooter songs along with a whole host of Richard Hunt’s…
