Near the end of Muppet Guys Talking, puppeteer Dave Goelz is asked a question about where he’s found the nobility in his life’s work. “[In] folly,” he answers. “Human folly. Celebrating the degree to which we’re all lost.” That’s just one instance of how this documentary about the world’s favorite puppets gets…
I can’t stand Elmo, just can’t deal with this damn Muppet anymore. He’s cute, he’s shrill, and he has made Sesame Street worse.
Hope I’m not spoiling the outcome of this battle for anybody.
At D23 this past Friday, The Muppets were out in full force for their ‘Magic of the Muppets’ panel. They made some fun announcements (new Pigs in Space shorts!!), but they were mostly there to promote their latest TV project - a return to primetime television on ABC, currently slated to debut on September 22. It’s…
Did those puppets at Nintendo’s E3 presentation look familiar? There’s good reason! Muppet fansite ToughPigs contacted The Henson Company, who confirmed it worked with Nintendo. Jim Henson’s son, Brian Henson, reportedly directed the opening video, too.
Don't get us wrong. We love The Muppets. Everybody loves the Muppets. But we love some Muppets more than others, because some Muppets are better than others, while some made us groan whenever they appeared on-screen. Here are a dozen Muppets that completely suck felt.
This new trailer for the upcoming Muppets movie aired during the Golden Globes, hence the initial preoccupation with awards. A focus which swiftly shifts to some trailer producers who know their internet comment routines a little too well.

Four years ago today, we featured a video from Brentalfloss—the New York comedian Brent Black—for the very first time. On that anniversary, we're delighted to bring you what might be his finest work yet, a Muppets musical starring the mages from Final Fantasy.
There's a new Sesame Street DVD out that is, according to whichever Muppet writes their press releases, "full of fun video game spoofs". It appears they are telling the truth.
I'd never seen a Muppet operated in person until Friday at Hasbro's San Diego Comic-Con booth. In my heart and in my mind I still have never seen a Muppet operated in person — I just saw Super Grover.
Creating a brand-new official Muppet character is a task few people in this world have the opportunity to undertake. Double Fine Productions Scott Campbell is one of those people, and this is what his effort has wrought.
This may be the sweetest wedding proposal I've ever seen. Sid Ceaser, Muppet fan, had two puppets made, one in his likeness, the other, his girlfriend's. Then he made a movie with them. Then he had the clip played at the movies.
If you grew up in the 1980s or before, chances are puppets delighted and frightened you. Later generations have become increasingly exposed to computer graphic creations. That's the norm. And puppets....
