  • Rumor: Walt Disney World’s Muppet Vision 3D Closing Too

    Muppet Fans Who Grew Up - Tough Pigs

    Late last year, we learned that Disneyland’s Muppet*Vision 3D attraction was being temporarily replaced with a Frozen sing-along.  And then we learned that it was very possible that the Muppets would not be returning at all. As sad as that news was, at least we knew that there was another Muppet*Vision down in Orlando, along with a more impressive surrounding area including a spinning fountain and themed gift shop.  So as long as we never lose Disney World’s Muppet*Vision, we’re going to be okay. In case you can’t read the disdain in my voice, things are not looking…

    The Muppet Newsflash Podcast (which is sort a running joke between JD Hansel and I) makes an admirable effort this week. Meaning, JD and I make Muppet podcast magic once again as we bring everyone up to date on what’s happening in the Muppet world. Lots of news, some great Frank Oz clips, and even […]

  • RIP Sesame Street Animator Jane Aaron

    Joe Hennes
    6 Jul 2015 | 1:58 pm
    Filmmaker, animator, and children’s book illustrator Jane Aaron passed away this week at the age of 67.  You may not recognize her, but you’ll definitely recognize her many, many animations from Sesame Street. Included on her resume were projects for MTV, Nick at Nite, and The Learning Channel, as well as children’s programs like Between the Lions and HBO Family.  But the feather in her cap seemed to be her work with Sesame Street. For example, she provided the animation in “Right In the Middle of My Face” with Elmo: And “What’s Inside”,…
  • Sesame Place Book Now In Stores

    Meanwhile, in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, Sesame Street’s own theme park is still running strong.  Sesame Place is a small portion of Sesame Workshop’s library of franchises and services, and we admit to not knowing a whole lot about it. Lucky for us, there’s a brand new book focusing on the history and spectacle of Sesame Place, which celebrated its 35th anniversary this year, hitting stores today. The book features over 160 photos, many of which have never been seen before.  The photos are from the entire history of the park and over 50 different attractions, as well as the…

    Hello again, fellow nerds! It’s the most wonderful time of the year as San Diego Comic Con (SDCC for short) is almost here!

Check out some of the offerings. Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge Friday, July 10th 12:00pm – 1:00pm Location: Room 29AB One of the biggest TV events last year (as least for our readers) was Jim Henson’s…

    It’s the Fourth of July weekend!  It’s a great time for patriotism, family fun, fireworks, and hot dogs.  The only thing that could make it better would be a funny, brand-new Muppet video of Sam the Eagle attempting to present a patriotic tribute.  And just like that, here it is!  Take a look: Click here to add some melodious punch-up to the Tough Pigs forum! by Ryan Roe – Ryan@ToughPigs.com
