I love the muppets. For a pretty frequently updated merch site, check out toughpigs.com.

Just a question: Is "The Muppets Do Dallas" a real movie? This site mentions it as one of "their more recent outings," (near bottom of page) but a search doesn't turn up anything. I always thought it would be the perfect name for an NC17 Muppets movie... if they were to make such a thing.

Thank heaven for the internet, full of so many people with way too much time on their hands.

Nice FAQ! Too bad it's gotten out of date.

Took me a sec to figure out who "Ernie and Bert" are. They've always been Bert and Ernie to me.

when I was a kid.... I thought they were just one word....


I was always wondering why they called these two characters one name.... I guess I was a little slow...

Kind of like that show in the NBC promos, Lawn Norder.

My sister just moved to Greenville, Mississippi, not far from the Jim Henson Museum in Leland. I'm looking forward to seeing an original Kermit on my next visit.
