Thanksgiving & the Muppets | Muppet Monday

Somehow it is this time of year again. Time for stuffing, chats around a dining room table, your dad snoring in the living room as he “watches” football with your husband. With all the traditions I do look forward to on Turkey Day (my husband’s homemade apple pie!), I realized there are quite of few […]

Making Your WDW Trip More Muppety | Muppet Monday

I have vacation on the brain. Forgive me! Today’s probing question: how do you make your trip more Muppety without seeing MuppetVision 3D at least 10 times in four days? (My condolences to MuppetVision in Disneyland, which closed this weekend. I hope this isn’t goodbye forever.) I’m thinking you can find Muppet goodness anywhere anytime […]

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 […]

Stop Smoking, Beaker! | Muppet Monday

Yesterday we barely made it to 60 degrees in New York City, and this morning, it’s going to be less than 46 degrees. Is it time to pull out the winter jacket? Well… maybe not. But maybe it’s time to bring out the Nose Warmer. If only if it wasn’t one of Dr. Honeydew’s inventions. […]

Meet My Muppet Family | Muppet Monday

We were out this weekend with some lovely friends who interrupted my story at one point to say: “I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I just can’t picture your dad without thinking of Beaker.” This made us all chuckle a bit; this wasn’t the first time we’ve said this about my dad. And honestly? I have no […]

Muppet Monday: Be Our Guest Star

Fall is such a great season because of pretty leaves, the return of scarves and beloved sweaters, and pumpkins everywhere! But one of the best parts of all is the return of your favorite TV shows after a summer of repeats. With us getting back into more of a TV watching routine and less of […]

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 […]

Biographer Brian Jay Jones on Jim Henson | Muppet Monday

Happy Monday! This Wednesday, Jim Henson would have turned 78. In the 3 years I’ve been working on THP, one of the highlights has always been learning and discovering more about Jim and the Muppets that I love. If you’ve been following since last year, you might remember I was SUPER excited for the release […]

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 […]
