the muppet movie

I’ve always wanted...

-An adult version of the baby from the first Ice Age movie to reunite with the rest of the herd.

-“A Bugs Life II,” with Dot growing up and learning the duties of a princess in Atta’s place.

-The Iron Giant II: He sacrificed himself at the end of the movie and his parts went ALL over the place…but he DIDN’T die.  I always expected a movie where his parts finally came back together and he reunited with Hogarth.

-The chipmunks singing “Boys and Girls of Rock and Roll” in one of their live action movies

-For Jack to be reunited with an older version of the baby he took care of in the first series (Samurai Jack)

-A modern crossover between the newer Sesame Street characters and the newer Muppet characters, just like the specials in the old days

-There to be consistency in the fact that in the first Monster’s Inc. movie, Mike told Sully, “You’ve been jealous of my looks since 3rd grade,” rather for them to make a completely new plot where the first time they met was in college.

-Consistency with the X-Men movies in general

-A live action movie of the Teen Titans

-A live action movie of Codename Kids Next Door

-The GALACTIC KIDS NEXT DOOR SERIES

….And so much more.

….but a girl can dream.

i used to ship kermit and miss piggy hardcore up until i discovered the tumblr muppet fandom, but i’ve become really disillusioned with it as of late. it’s still a cute ship and it’s as iconic as mickey and minnie or gomez and morticia, but i really preferred how it was written in the 2011 muppet movie and muppets most wanted. the new show was good, but their relationship was just… really rushed along, you know? denise got shoved out of the picture and it didn’t feel like a totally permanent fix. give me that 2011 - 2014 kermit/piggy please!!!

and i think i ship kermit with rowlf now because i identify so heavily with kermit and I’M gay, so i like the idea of him being gay too. or bi. really just with some same-sex attraction of any kind. i wanna find happiness with a big strong woman, so i project onto kermit by shipping him with a big strong man.

idk this is. VERY rambly and i’ve had muppets on the brain lately

Do you know what the beauty of this scene at the beginning of The Muppet Movie is?  It’s that Kermit has just been approached for the first time by a Hollywood talent agent who tells him he’d be a shoe-in, and that he could be rich and famous.  Kermit actually couldn’t care less about that, and he’s pretty happy right where he is.  But then the agent tells Kermit he could make millions of people happy.  That’s when Kermit first feels something stirring inside him.  Kermit is the least egotistical character I’ve ever seen try to pursue fame and entertainment.  He also shows that he’s scared to leave where he’s comfortable, as many very normal people are.  Why leave a place that you’ve known your whole life for the chance at something that seems so far fetched that it can’t ever be real?  And yet, despite that, he feels called to do something bigger.  He hints at it only a minute or two before that in the opening song Rainbow Connection, saying he hears some voice calling to him that he can’t ignore, and that there’s something he’s supposed to be.  Kermit is the ultimate embodiment of stepping outside of one’s comfort zone and giving something a chance against all odds, and not even for himself, but because he thinks it would bring happiness to the whole world.

We should all strive to be like the Kermit portrayed in The Muppet Movie.

Here’s some silly Muppet doodles that I just realized I never put up on Tumblr! I was rewatching the first three Muppet movies and From Space with @kmorrisoncartoons last December and I still like how some of these came out, so here you go!

Very Weird Crossover Ideas

1. Star Wars, but it’s a “What We Do in the Shadows” style documentary
(Mostly so you can have things like members of Rogue Squadron being like “Wow, this base is pretty empty. Oh. There’s bodies. Hm. Lots of bodies. Hey Luke, you didn’t tell us your dad was visiting this week!”
“Sorry, the custody arrangement changed again.”)

2. The Muppet Movie, but it’s the cast of Voltron Legendary Defender
Hunk: “Oh I’m so nervous! If this calculation is off, I’ll never be able to live with myself!”
Coran: “Well then, you’ll have to get another apartment, won’t you?”

3. Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein, but the cast is 100% Transformers
Prowl: “You’re making enough noise to wake up the dead!”
Cliffjumper: “Oh I don’t have to wake him up. He’s up.”
Prowl: “Listen: I know there’s no such person as CYLAS. You know there’s no such person as CYLAS.”
Cliffjumper: “But does CYLAS know it?”

Okay so there’s this guy called David Lazer (left) who used to work besides Jim Henson (right) on a lot of his productions

David mainly helped Henson produce Muppet productions such as: The Muppet Show (1976-1981), The Muppet Movie (1979) and The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984).

David’s final production was David Bowie’s Labyrinth in 1986.

HOWEVER

After 31 years of inactivity in the world of cinema, David Lazer has returned to help produce this year’s most anticipated animated feature

THE FUCKING EMOJI MOVIE
