News Update: March 4, 2014

MARCH 4, 2014

The Muppets are virtually all over the place now as the promotion for Muppets Most Wanted kicks into the highest of gears. Last night alone, Miss Piggy was on E! Network, Kermit and Miss Piggy were on The Bachelor, Gonzo was on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Tina Fey was on The Tonight Show. I, for one, am exhausted and can’t keep up anymore… but here’s what you missed!

Miss Piggy was on E! Network last night discussing celebrity fashion at the Academy Awards. Miss Piggy was the most lifelike of the E! personalities present, and she looked good. For some reason the embed code for this video keeps screwing up the rest of our post, so you can watch it on E!’s website.

Muppets Most Wanted star Tina Fey had a fantastic time on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, discussing the movie. The rest of the appearance was incredibly fun, but you can watch the Muppet-relevant part right here! Warning, there is a spoiler-ish clip at the end of the appearance, but Jimmy Fallon gives you plenty of warning.

My favorite Muppets Most Wanted appearance yet was last night as The Great Gonzo appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. Gonzo rarely, if ever gets solo talk show appearances, so this was fantastic. Watch the entire hilarious appearance below!

Kermit the Frog has continued the partnership with Lipton Tea for their #BeMoreTea campaign with a brand new song. The song is super cute and Kermit’s banjo playing is fantastic. Watch it!

Down in Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios, there has been a really cool update to Muppet*Vision 3D‘s pre-show. A new segment featuring Constantine has been added to the pre-show, seemingly without taking up time from anything else. I think it’s awesome and very funny. Check it out!

Speaking of Constantine, Disney Channel’s “Movie Surfers” got the chance to have the first ever interview with the evil frog. We can’t embed the video here, but you should definitely watch it over on the Movie Surfers site. It’s really funny and I’m really impressed by our friend Matt Vogel. Constantine is awesome!

The other night on QVC, Miss Piggy appeared to sell her new, self-designed tote bag. While on the show, she had a run in with her old Muppets Take Manhattan co-star Joan Rivers. It… did not go well. Check out the video below and watch some poor waiter get stuck in the middle of the latest celebrity feud.

Muppets Most Wanted released yet another TV spot this week following the Oscars. Since they weren’t nominated for any this year, they decided to let us know what awards they’re totally going to be nominated for next year! They’re pretty much a lock for all of them.

Muppets Most Wanted released the first actual uncut clip from the movie at the end of last week. The clip sees the Muppets meeting Ricky Gervais as Dominic Badguy for the first time. Obviouslyly, this clip is one entire spoiler alert, so if you’re avoiding spoilers, don’t watch! Unfortunately, we can’t embed the video, but you can watch it exclusively on Yahoo! Movies right now!

Finally, Miss Piggy appeared on the E! Oscars Red Carpet Pre-Show (catchy title). Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), there’s no video of the appearance, but you can check out Miss Piggy’s amazing Vivienne Westwood designed gown that she wore to the event right here. She looks gorgeous!

  1. Uh…Ryan..The Constantine addition is also in the California version of Muppet*Vision 3D. Please don't forget about the west coast.
