*g*

It seemed like a good night for a muppet break.
Floyd is still my TV boyfriend.
Hotch was never in the running.

*pets Hotch.*

He's way too married.
That purple velour sweatsuit is something else.

You think Debbie's riding the white pony. Dude. Go look up Alice Cooper's appearance.
Can you say, too stoned to WALK?
Hee.

Check out the Mummenschantz DNA ALL OVER Blue Man Group.

"Gorilla detector." I mean, just the juxtaposition of those two words is COMEDY PLUTONIUM. What is it? It's a gorilla detector. What's it do? Detects gorillas. Why would you need a gorilla detector?

I have no memory of seeing the gorilla detector sketch as a kid, so I finally saw it when I got the Muppet Show Season 1 DVD set... and the only thing that kinda bothered me when I saw it was that it was, well, pre-Beaker. Try to imagine what *that* would have been like...

"MEEP MEEP! MEEP! MEEP!"

"Beaker, get a hold of yourself. That is NOT a gorilla!"

"MEEP MEEP MEEEEEEEEEE...."

*is carried off by gorilla*
That Johnny Cash is gold.
It's one of the best bits ever. leahbobet found that one.
I loved The Muppet Show, so a Muppet break is always welcome!

Also, it made me deliriously happy that someone had put the 'To Morrow' song up on youtube.

Oh yesss. The Henson and Oz muppets. Yesss.

Alas, the bit with Kermit drinking milk is not, as near as I can tell.
I sorely regret that the bit with Rowlf singing "Titwillow" with Sam the Eagle chiming in is not on YouTube. Because it is AWESOME.

"What's 'obdurate' mean?" "I don't know!"
Hee. Some of my favorite bits aren't up, either, but I usually loved the backstage interludes more than skits.
Sanity in a box.

Somehow.

For all their absurdity.

Keep me searching for a...

Sigh. Muppets. I looked for my favorite bit a while ago...Statler and Waldorf giving their review of a scene. Well, that was terrible. It was in the middle, there. I hated it! I loved it! Get 'im off. More!
Ahh, you just made me so happy. Fond memories of early Sunday evenings loving the Muppets.

I am the proud owner of 2 Muppet albums and now have an urge to dig both them and the turntable out.

My OH was a drummer for a long time and holds Animal up as one of his greatest influences. Alas his t-shirt featuring Animal and the words "Want Woman" has long since fallen to pieces.

*drifts off into Muppety nostalgia*
indeed. happy happy muppets.
