After a pretty nasty controversy, Kermit the Frog got a new voice performer in the form of Matt Vogel. We’ve heard what Vogel sounds like, but now we can check out the real test: how well can Vogel sing?
Earlier this summer, Steve Whitmire, the man who had performed and voiced Kermit the Frog since the passing of creator Jim Henson, was fired. It was a complex situation that ultimately meant one thing for fans: a new Kermit was coming. And, today, we finally got our first listen.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly round up of the coolest toys and merchandise floating around the internet. This week, we’ve got a festive Lego set, an obscenely over-the-top Nerf cannon, and yes, a Joker figure just resplendent with different emotions. Take a look, and prepare to hide your wallet somewhere…
Just in case a show that gave Fozzie an inter-species relationship, mocked Miss Piggy for her weight and gave Animal side chicks wasn’t adult enough, The Muppets are back in a recreation of one of the most messed-up moments in science fiction movie history. Yippee?
If it didn’t mean we’d miss amazing films like Being John Malkovich, Adaptation and Her, Spike Jonze could have a great career in late night. Earlier this week, the director helmed directed a surreal new opening to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, which you should watch here.
The Muppets have long been great at putting together hilarious short videos, and for July 4th, who better than Sam the American Eagle to commemorate the birth of the United States?
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.
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.
Prior to The Muppet Show, Jim Henson had the reputation as one heck of a pitchman. So when it came time to sell CBS on the variety program in the 1970s, Henson and his team assembled a grandiose reel promising executives a lucrative demographic of "intellectual eggheads" and "dirty, cynical hippies."
Royalty is expected to hobnob among the commoners, but Princess Diana certainly didn't see this encounter coming when she woke up on December 1, 1986. At the Labyrinth Royal Premiere, Henson and the friendly monster Ludo ended up chatting with Di and Prince Charles about anti-Fraggle poaching charities or the…
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.
As wonderful as the new Muppet movie is, it could, like all things in like, use more Bunsen and Beaker. In this deleted scene, our favorite puppet crackpot inventor shows off his remote controlled bowling ball, with predictably disastrous results.
Here's the moment in The Muppets that broke my brain. Walter and his weirdly fleshy brother Gary face a perplexing identity crisis — trying to decide whether they want to describe themselves as humans or Muppets. The implications for identity politics are staggering.
It would be easy to ruin the Muppets: Just make them modern. Why do the Muppets have so much staying power? They're real. They actually exist. Felt and batting in the era of CGI.
Don't try and pretend the Oscars isn't a snoozefest. "And the winner for best... ZZZZZZZZZ." With Brett Ratner and Eddie Murphy officially out of the picture, it's time for the Academy to step up and hire the Muppets to host.
I'm so ready to watch this movie already. We've seen official and unofficial trailers before but here's the latest loaded with plot juiciness! The Muppets aren't famous anymore! Kermit gets mistaken for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! London! Paris! Singing chickens! NPH! Walter?
Another muppet parody has been released, showing Sam the Eagle in the rugged, leather Captain America gear. We kind of love these Disney Marvel mash-ups. Please please please do a Ms. Piggy/Asbestos Lady combination next!
