Muppets in Movies | Muppet Monday

Greetings, friends! Last weeks, the Muppets and I observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day but we’re back in action today with another post about MuppetVision at Hollywood Studios. I’m actually nervous to see how many times I’ve written about this attraction on the blog — it’s a big number, I’m sure — but I can’t […]

I Am Big Bird (and Oscar) | Muppet Monday

‘ello! I hope you all had a grand weekend. It was a pretty relaxing, delightfully blustery few days in New York City, and a perfect afternoon to head to The Brooklyn Academy of Music for a showing of the I Am Big Bird documentary — spotlighting the almost 50-year career of Caroll Spinney, the man […]

Back to High School Musical 2

Big thanks to everyone who commented on my first High School Musical post! Today I’m discussing the second movie cleverly titled High School Musical 2. Basically, six months after the first movie, the crew is on summer break and due to the magical powers of Sharpay, they all end up working at the country club […]

Muppet Monday: Everything is Possible (Lesley Ann Warren)

If only I had done my research days ago. It wasn’t until Melissa from Mouse on the Mind texted me yesterday afternoon to inform me that Lesley Ann Warren had been a guest star on The Muppet Show back in Season 3. Why does this matter? Well, first, I’m obviously not watching these episodes fast […]

Muppet Monday: Sharpay vs. Miss Piggy

I had a crazy Saturday where I ate cheese and watched High School Musical 2. In case you forgot, that’s the one where the kids from the first HSM movie are working at a country club owned by the parents of Sharpay and Ryan Evans — the musically talented and weirdly close siblings. Sharpay is […]

Muppet Monday: Friendship Between a Lady and a Pig

If you’ve watched only a few Muppet movies, you’ve noticed that Miss Piggy doesn’t have a solid gal pal she goes to when things are rough with Kermit, she needs advice on her red carpet style for the next big event, or deciding just how much of the script to rewrite when those things come […]

Muppet Monday: Hollywood Elite

James and I spent another lovely Saturday afternoon at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens. Gosh, I love that place. Currently, the museum is featuring some fantastic World’s Fair footage and a very extensive Chuck Jones exhibit with all kinds of great cartoons I haven’t seen in ages. (I was reminded how […]

Kill Refurb Marry: Songs from Animated Films

Back again for another game of torture. I mean, FUN. Lots of fun. πŸ˜‰ Songs from animated films — destined toΒ become super memorable and other times, an earworm you wish you could turn off. Of course, not that we are up to this KILL REFURB MARRY, my mind can’t remember what annoys me. OF COURSE. […]

Worth His While: Discovering HERCULES

I’m not sure how it happened. A complete oversight. I somehow married James without watching Hercules with him. This was a rite of passage with so many friends, and now, three years of marriage later, we finally crossed the threshold into Ancient Greece, Air Hercs, and (my personal favorite) Michael Bolton ballads. I’m happy to […]
