A Muppet Marriage Proposal

As a huge Muppets fan, I think this proposal video is just about the most romantic thing I’ve ever seen, besides when Piggy marries Kermit in “Muppets Take Manahttan.” This guy ordered custom Muppets that resembled him and his girlfriend for this proposal. Of course she said yes, but if she hadn’t, I would have taken him. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Straggly Muppet Dress

Growing up with “The Muppets” has been a way of life for the children of the last several generations. The quirky and adorable creatures taught us how to sing, dance, and work things out with friends. And as much as we owe them for all of the life lessons they’ve taught us, the way to pay them back is not by wearing a ridiculous feather and sequin “confection.” This dress is just like a Muppet who was hit by a car –depressing, expensive and in the end–very, very ugly.

Zach Galifianakis To Be Muppet-a-fied

Robert Downey, Jr. recently opened his big mouth on accident, and no, it wasn’t to tell me he loves me, sigh. But it’s pretty much the next best thing: Zach Galifianakis is going to be in the next Muppet movie! Yay! But who will he play? While normally I’d say he’d make a terrific live-action Fozzie Bear, after seeing Zach’s cheesecake shots in Vanity Fair, I think he’s a shoo-in for Miss Piggy! Keep reading »

The Swedish Chef Is Back!


This is the only “Top Chef” I need. I’m suffering from cuteness overload from this video. The combo of the Swedish Chef’s mumbling, the ticklish shrimp puppets, and the lonely caption typist makes this the best popcorn shrimp recipe I have ever seen. Sorry, Bubba Gump. Enjoy the triumphant return of “The Muppets”‘ Swedish Chef. Keep reading »

Animal On Yer Phone? Awesome!

I’m one of those iPhone owners who feels totally overwhelmed by the whole app phenomenon—isn’t “app” short for “appetizer”—and as a result has, uh, only two of them. But I am so going to get this one called “Animal Drummer.” It’s a game where you put on some tunes, and make Animal drum away to them, getting points for accuracy. I can already feel my subway rides going faster. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Muppet-Inspired Runway Looks

Whether it’s Miss Piggy imitating Lady Gaga, Benicio Del Toro’s eyebrows making him almost indistinguishable from The Muppets’ Wolfman or Ozzy Osbourne’s bizarre resemblance to Muppet musician Zoot, there’s a lot of human/puppet crossover going on these days. Perhaps noticing this trend, a handful of designers decided to extend it to the runway this season, sending out looks that might be more at home on Sesame Street than at Bryant Park. Check out more high fashion Muppets after the jump. [Refinery29] Keep reading »

Jake Gyllenhaal Learns How To Separate, Looks Hot At The Same Time


OK, um, hello? Is it just me, or is this hawt? I mean, I had no idea that an octopus puppet on Jake Gyllenhaal‘s head could be so titillating. Something about the spread legs, and the on-top-of-Jake’s-head position, and the obsessing over the word “separate.” I feel like it’s all some kind of primal dialogue to which I am only partially privy. Where was Jake when I was watching “Sesame Street”? Probably not born yet. Sigh. Keep reading »

The Muppets Do Queen And It Is Beautiful


It’s a well-known fact that Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” is one of the the hardest songs to sing and until this very second, I didn’t think anyone but my beloved Freddie Mercury could pull it off. I don’t know whose brilliant idea it was to have The Muppets sing this classic rock song, but they should be given a prize or a medal or perhaps be knighted by the Queen. I particularly like Beaker’s contribution — mee-mee-mee-mee! [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

“Meep!” It’s The New Word That Could Get A Kid Suspended

“Meep?” “Meep!” “Meep, meep, meep, meep, meep.” What the heck did I just say? Maybe Beaker’s friend, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, knows. The principal of Dancers High School in Massachusetts had no idea what the nonsensical Muppet-word meant, either. That old fuddy-duddy threatened his students with suspension after administrators learned of a dastardly plan for a “mass meeping.”

Luckily for everyone’s permanent record, the cacophony of “meeping,” which had been planned online, never happened. But, hey, kids planning a silly “mass meeping” is a hell of a lot better than kids planning a school shooting. Meep, meep! [ABC News] Keep reading »
