Break out your Kermit flail gifs, everyone, because we’re not only getting Muppet action figures—they look pretty damn fabulous, too.
Seriously, I’m asking, because I don’t know the answer. It’s not that the jokes aren’t funny—some of them were super funny, although last night’s series premiere was definitely hit and miss. It’s more that this whole concept is just wrong for the freaking Muppets. And then there’s Miss Piggy. Sigh.
We’ve found Kermit the Frog in real life and it’s a species of glassfrog just recently discovered called Hyalinobatrachium dianae in Costa Rica. It’s bright green just like Kermit, has big white adorable eyeballs just like Kermit and the males have a very unique mating call... just like Kermit, I guess? Anyway, the…
Star Wars and The Muppets have long been linked, thanks to Frank Oz's work bringing the likes of Fozzie, Miss Piggy, and of course Yoda, to life. But the worlds mix a little more closely in this gallery of recently uncovered photos, showing Kermit and Miss Piggy paying the set of The Empire Strikes Back a visit.
Any build that features a Muppet is worth looking at. This build, by grubaluk, features two of the best Muppets, Statler and Waldorf, the lovable haters in the balcony.
It's not often that you get a chance to see the place where your childhood memories were literally built. It's kind of like peeling back the curtain on your dreams and finding the architects of them busily at work, pulling the strings, painting the scenery, and creating the characters you will vividly remember decades…
Rejoice, because here's the first musical number from the new Muppets Most Wanted movie coming out in March.
Forget about Breaking Bad and throw Leonardo DiCaprio and his squinty, squinty eyes in the trash. The arguments over their merits are boring. But this? This is what a Twitter charge for the new Muppet movie to sweep the Golden Globes would have looked like.
Thanks to a donation from the Henson Foundation, on Tuesday, Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, and 19 other Muppets and well-loved characters gained their rightful place in history, entering into the collection of the Smithsonian Museum. As Kermit would say—hi-ho!
Not everybody's into chemistry but you have to be a special kind of insane to not have a fondness for the Muppets. This periodic table of Muppetry is a wonderfully organized and colorful take on the history of the form than anyone (with a soul) can appreciate, chem-geek or not.
In 1979 Jim Henson brought the Muppets to the big screen with the aptly titled film "The Muppet Movie." On December 5th, the Muppet Movie came to Netflix. Tonight, you should watch it.
We make no secret of our love for Muppets, so we're psyched that these new augmented reality Band-Aids are bringing our favorite stop-motion puppets into the 21st century.
Technology and non-human lifeforms are not mutually exclusive things. And in a very poignant, hard-hitting interview with USA Today, the de facto leader of the Muppets, Kermit the Frog, sat down to discuss his favorite and least favorite technologies.
Roll that spliff phatly, pack some fresh ice into the binger, and set the Volcano to "toastify." It's time for tonight's Stoner Channel. We've collected our best high-times material for the discerning pothead so sit back, relax, and pass that shit on the left, yo.
The Muppets made some wonderful parody trailers for their movie last year, but they've got at least one more up their sleeve. Here's The Hunger Games, with muppets. Although somehow I have a hard time seeing Miss Piggy as Katniss.
The magic of the Muppets is the uncanny suspension of disbelief, which itself is a function of their being actual physical entities. A CGI Kermit would be a joke; the one we grew up with, though, we can see, and touch, and hear. And that last part is sorely underrated.
We've been excited about the new Muppets movie for months, and now it's here. Have you seen it? We have! And we love it. And we love you too, so here's a Muppets/Gizmodo ringtone—totally free. Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Muppetsgiving!
The magic of the muppets is that they're 'real', or as real as puppetry gets. Still, even when the Muppets could have easily gone CGI, they stuck to their roots. That doesn't mean everything in the new Muppets movie was old school though. Even muppets need the magic of the movies.
