Muppet Thursday

Some happiness and some sadness today. Just the kind of melange of melancholy and joy that makes The Muppets such a unique form of entertainment.

First, new Muppet YouTube goodness:

I’m a sucker for skateboarding bulldogs, Statler & Waldorf.

Next, Big Bird singing “It’s Not Easy Being Green” at Jim Henson’s funeral. You can really hear Carol Spinney struggling to fight back tears a couple of times during the performance:

    How did I not know you have a muppet blog? I am the biggest muppet dork there is. Working with “Del” in Vegas last year was the fulfillment of a childhood dream.
    “Thank you Kermit”…
    Did you heart that? It was the sound of my heart breaking.

  2. Hey, Holly!

    It’s not so much a Muppet blog as a blog that occasionally mentions them and has “Muppet” in the name.

    It was actually a bet that landed me this domain name. A drunken college bet.

    I need to buy SlightlyFraggle.com as well, if that’s any indicator of how inebriated I was at the time.
