Cookie Monster Learns To Deal With His Addiction Issues In This Icona Pop Parody

I never really thought about what a straight up cookie addict Cookie Monster is, but I should have seen all the signs. The lack of self control, the binge cookie-eating, the crazy eyes he'd get whenever cookies were in the vicinity. But this parody video of Icona Pop's hit "I Love It" makes it perfectly…

RIP Jerry Nelson, “Muppet Show,” “Sesame Street,” “Fraggle Rock” Veteran

You might not recognize Jerry Nelson‘s name, but you’re probably more familiar with "Sesame Street"’s the Count, Amazing Mumford and Snuffalupagus, or Statler (half of the heckling duo of Statler and Waldorf), Floyd Pepper (the mustachioed guitar player in the Muppet Show house band), Lew Zealand (that guy who chucks fish), Gobo Fraggle, Robin the Frog,…

Kermit Works The Black Carpet

After seeing Kermit work the "black carpet" at the "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" premiere, I vote for Muppets to work all red carpet events forevermore. It's so much easier to ask embarrassing questions and make off-color jokes when you're a puppet. Kermit played the Johnny Depp and Vanessa Hudgens interviews perfectly. He…

The Freaky Parallels Between The New “Smurfs” And “Muppets” Movies

I'm sensing a trend here. First, a major studio announces that they'll be making an update of a mega-popular kids franchise: Columbia/Sony are making "The Smurfs: The Movie" and Disney will soon start filming a new "Muppet Movie." Both flicks will be a mixture of animation/puppets with live-action actors. Last week, it was announced last…
