Just when I think Vogel is almost nailing Kermie, he goes and does a whole heap of wrong things like in this clip, funny as it might have been.

Yeah, the inflections/mannerisms are great, but he’s WAY too deep. :?

No, I don’t remember that either. How frustrating that they got as close as actual box art...!?!!!

There used to be a video floating around showing the panel, can't seem to find it. Probably removed. The DVD was announced at the 2009 D23 expo. Such a shame.

It's always a great time to remember The Muppet Show. RIP, Kenny.

Trailer for "Muppets Now":



Looks great. Cautiously optimistic. Still think Kermit sounds like he has a cold...

I love how the title is just basically a statement on the Muppets.

Love them or loathe them how they were and how they are, this is the Muppets Now. Take it or leave it.

I’m not sure which I’ll do yet. It’s usually not such a great sign when the characters in a show tell you how absolutely fantastic everything is going to be! But at least it can’t be worse than that sour taste ABC mockumentary thing, right?
