Jimmy & The Muppets Say Goodbye To “Late Night” (w/ “The Weight” from “The Last Waltz”) 

Jimmy & the Muppets perform “The Weight” by the Band for the last waltz of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”

The various things that Jareth does with the crystal balls (rolling them around his arms and in his hands and so forth) are not camera tricks or any other kind of special effect. They are actually done by choreographer Michael Moschen, who is an accomplished juggler. Moschen was actually crouched behind Bowie with his arm(s) replacing Bowie’s. Unlike a typical Muppet performance, however, he had no video screen to view his performance. In other words, his manipulations were performed completely blind.

One of the greatest things to ever occur on television: John Belushi being assaulted by a Muppet, then threatening to stab said Muppet. [s01ep16]

If you had ANY more bloopers please I'd love to see them I found your blog when I saw the drum bloopers and I loved it more than anything

I made a list for you!

  • Blooper reel for The Muppets
  • Blooper reel for The Muppet Christmas Carol 
  • Blooper reel for It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie
  • Blooper reel for Letters to Santa Part 1 and Part 2
  • Camera test for The Muppet Movie - Not really a blooper reel, but if you want Frank and Jim just dicking around and being silly with their characters, you’ll love this. Kermit explaining to Fozzie that he’s not a real bear is beautiful. They did this to see if the Muppets could be filmed outside (since they had only been filmed in a studio before), so they wanted to test filming outdoors before they did The Muppet Movie. But this is great because it’s just Jim and Frank trying to make each other laugh and succeeding. Plus Fozzie’s telling jokes to cows and Frank’s just cracking up.
  • More camera test footage for The Muppet Movie - This one has Kermit, Fozzie, AND Sweetums! It’s more of Frank and Jim goofing around (not sure who’s in the Sweetums costume? It might be Richard, but it could be someone else). Fozzie and Kermit in the car is my favorite bit. “Is there a stove in this car? Is there a bathroom here? Maybe it’s next to the stove. I’m going to go in the stove.”
  • Blooper reel for The Muppets at Disney WorldThis is SUCH a good one. It’s just the Muppet performers basically having the Muppets beat each other up whenever one of them messes up. The ending when they’re doing the dance it’s just the Muppets continually wailing on whichever Muppet mess up. Plus you get to see Frank, Jim, Steve, Jerry Juhl, and Kevin in the behind the scenes at the tale end.
  • Blooper reel for Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas - Hands down the best of all the blooper reels. “Get the drum! It’s worth about ten bucks!” “I can’t! My feet are stapled!” “… I’m a munchkin.”
