A sad day

I was really disappointed to read that Brian Henson, son of the late Jim Henson, has now created an adult themed Muppet show complete with lewd action and puppets assaulting each other.

Now, if you know me, you know I am all about lewdness and violence. I love that stuff where it comes in the form of "Dodgeball" or similar shows. I can handle that. But, this is something that children know and love and I just don't like demeaning it.

I just hope the Avenue Q muppets are totally different creations and don't have the same characters at all. I think Jim Henson would roll over in his grave if they did that.

    Nah! I wasn't too impressed either. But they are completely different characters, at least. I was also bummed that he sold the Muppets to Disney even though I love them both. (Disney has dulled them, in my not-so-humble opinion.)
    On the bright side, they are doing a sequel to The Dark Crystal that looks like it's going to be incredible.

    I think the loss of Jim Henson has meant that the true heart of the Muppets is gone.

    But, the Dark Crystal thing could be good.

    Hmmm... but this could be Miss Piggy's big chance to get some real action!

    j/k I think it's tasteless and sucky, too.
