Hi!! Dear Danny, I'm writing to you for say about I habe available a pair of Vicma vintage hand Muppets!! Try to search for them at Ebay, Smiley Sesame Street 70's and Sherlock. I'm a serious seller at Ebay with years of experience. Best regards!
Can you believe the CD announcement? It actually brought me out of retirement! Seriously, I was gone for a long time because nothing was happening with CD's and stuff, and now we've got a whole bunch of brand new stuff to document, with more to come! I'm so glad they're on a major label again. This is the most stuff I've seen released at once since the Sony Wonder days!
Talk to you soon!
Hooray, that's great! I like the sound of "Unreleased Songs from Current and Past Seasons of Sesame Street" (from the press release). It's exciting to see them re-invest in Sesame merch, which has dried up lately. G is for Grover! and N is for Numbers! look especially good.
It's a shame that the CD covers are so desperately generic; I don't know why they think those old clip art pictures they've been using for 10+ years are better than a photograph of the character. Oh well, maybe they'll come up with new stuff for the 50 years anniversary.
Yeah, and the new seasons of MST are pretty Muppet-reference-heavy -- they made Muppet references in 13 out of the 14 episodes last season; I assume that there was an oversight, and they expected to hit all 14.
I split off RiffTrax into its own page, where it can grow as big and crazy as it wants to.
Hey Danny! We're having a discussion on the Article Content Board about the unfinished project "Island of the Lost Muppets", a.k.a. "Muppetamia". One of the sources is an old MuppetZine article, where you say that the show would have introduced new Muppets called The Orangs.
There's no mention of the Orangs in any of our other sources. Do you remember where you heard about them?
Gosh. It was probably from Playthings magazine, which I scoured in the library for mentions of Henson. They would mention upcoming projects as possible sources of licensing. I think that's where I got the info on some of the other projects mentioned in that article, like Muppet Voyager, Muppet High and the Miss Piggy mystery books. I don't know if I still have a photocopy -- I just looked through old piles of files and I haven't found it yet. I'll keep looking. It's a pain that I wasn't more careful in the MZine days to keep track of sources; I didn't realize I would be co-writing an encyclopedia ten years later. :)
