I could have sworn we had a thread about the upcoming Muppets TV show, but I can't find it.

Anyway, here are the ten minutes The Muppets used to sell themselves to ABC.

There are definitely some laugh-out-loud moments in there, and I am looking forward to the show.

Got to admit there were some funny parts, but I can't say I would watch it. Stuff like that is funny in small chunks. Watching that made me miss being 10 again more than anything else.

See, I had the opposite impression.  The first trailer I saw was basically this in smaller chunks.  I thought that was funny, but I was worried it wouldn't work in an extended format.  I was very happy to see this (which may well be how the 1st ep will start) and find that it made me laugh a number of times.

Curious to whether you liked the movies? I thought they had their cute/funny parts, but there wasn't enough there for a movie for me. I guess this kind of felt the same for me.

Loved the first movie and liked the second one (I assume we're talking about the recent releases).

Yep, same here. It was only until after I read an article/interview that assuaged my fears about it. It feels like it's part original Muppets, part Muppets Tonight in terms of the vibe I'm getting for the execution, though I hope there's less of the latter. Conceptually, I don't think the talk-show format is all that dissimilar to their original vaudeville style format, just more of a modernization on how it's accomplished.

Oh and I loved the first movie, the second not so much.

I did too, but I was only 9 in 1979. For the second one in 1984, I was too old and didn't like it either. Tongue

(1984 was the third one - 1981 was the second.)
