We need a MUPPETS ARC

#1

Seriously, between the Audra-Sean Muppets lovefest in Nostalgia-cast #3 (GWC #270) and the response on the forum, I think a Muppet arc would be wildly popular. Perhaps timed around the upcoming Muppets movie that Jason Segel is writing (released I think in November 2011).

We could cover:

Oh heck yea - I love the Muppets! You could do a whole show on Waldorf and Statler!

I would enjoy this, and I would also like to see some love shown for the Jim Henson Company which has produced some amazing stuff over the years. If you need your memories refreshed as to what they have been up to all this time look here…

Also that movie is flat-out genius. Some parts are so quotable I use them almost daily. For examples:

This is true. I was lucky enough to go to a Jim Henson exhibit at the Smithsonian a few years ago. I learned all kinds of cool stuff, like the fact that Jim Henson designed an LSD rave club that he really wanted to open but couldn’t find investors to make it happen. Also, Fraggle Rock was the first U.S. children’s program aired in the Soviet Union. The exhibit had the original Gelflings Muppets and some absolutely amazing video footage of Henson and Oz working together. Loved it!
