The Top 10 Songs of: 2017

Kieran Moore – 2016 was a pretty grim year with political turmoil, celebrity deaths a-plenty AND a cancelled Muppet show under its belt. However, for many Muppet fans, those 12 months simply look like the “opening act” for what could have been our very own annus horribilis (to quote Queen Liz). So how do you…

The Mechanics of Muppets

Jarrod Fairclough – Ever wondered how puppets work?  Me too!  Thankfully the Muppet performers of Sesame Street have gotten together with WIRED to explains the mechanics of Big Bird, Elmo, Snuffy, Abby and Rudy .  It’s super informative!  You’ll learn how Elmo does his little ‘confused look’ (which I didn’t know), how Snuffy’s nose waves, and…

Catch Up On Below The Frame Season 2

Jarrod Fairclough – While we were off cavorting about in Europe, Matt Vogel and the Sesame Street Muppet performers (and Joe Hennes from ToughPigs?) began season 2 of their hit Facebook Live show ‘Below The Frame’.

Kermit & Piggy & A Big Ol’ Bowl!

Jarrod Fairclough – This weekend marks The Muppets Take The Hollywood Bowl, a 3 night live event promising to be a spectacle and a half.  To mark the occasion, Kermit and Miss Piggy were interviewed in 101-degree heat about what to expect, and got in to a hilarious argument in the process. Unfortunately the video isn’t…

Much More Kermit! (and Fozzie)

Jarrod Fairclough – After denying us for weeks, the past 7 days has been full of new Kermit material, giving us more footage of the frog as performed by Matt Vogel.  In this new Muppet Thought of the Week (but really an ad for the Hollywood Bowl show) Kermit and Fozzie re-enact (kinda) their old Good…
