Before I add something that's not really relevant, would it be okay to add the soundtrack album to this movie? I know that we have a Creature Shop album section, and there had been some discussion about whether to put Hitchhiker in a while back. I wasn't sure, because this is basically an album of various pop songs, so I didn't know if that would make it not really Muppet related. Thanks! -- Ken (talk) 21:12, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
- I thought we decided to get rid of the Hitchhiker CD, but I can't find that discussion now. I don't think the category is relevant at all. —Scott (talk) 21:47, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
- No, it's still here: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (soundtrack). After George created it, and some initial problems taken care of, it was just sort of lost in the shuffle. But I agree with Scott, I don't think soundtrack pages for non-Henson Creature Shop movies are that useful. Danny seemed to like the idea, though; from where I sit, the Hitchhiker's and Ninja soundtracks seem pretty equal, so if the one is allowed, the other should be, even if I don't care much for either. (If we must go full-blown down that route, though, I call dibs on the Babe soundtrack). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 21:56, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
"Initially, Jim Henson was reluctant to allow his Creature Shop to design the characters for this movie, due to the violence level of the film. Eventually he relented as a favor to the film's director, Steve Barron, who had directed episodes of The StoryTeller." Can anyone verify this passage? Checking the history, Tom (who hasn't been on the Wiki in months, it seems) added it when the article was first created, but I've been unable to dig up anything about this. All of the quotes I've found from Jim, which I hope to integrate later, are about the technology, and in one interview, he praises the film's comedy. Well, that makes sense, even if he was reluctant, he wouldn't necessarily express it while making the publicity rounds. On the other hand, this sounds like an urban legend or rumor, based on assumptions of what Jim Henson would/would not do (which in light of Muppets shooting each other in the 60s, or The Land of Gorch, has I think been exaggerated). On the other hand, I don't have access to No Strings Attached or any other book (as opposed to periodical) sources on the film or the Creature Shop, so if anyone can verify, clarify, or disprove, it would be much appreciated -- Andrew Leal (talk) 05:45, 14 October 2006 (UTC)
