Yesterday it was confirmed that Miss Piggy and Pepe will be appearing on the Desperate Housewives: The Complete Sixth Season - The All-Mighty Edition (that's really the name) DVD set, available September 21. Surely we'll see Miss Piggy reeking havoc on Wisteria Lane and Pepe ogling quite a bit (and with housewives that desperate, maybe he won't get shut down), unfortunately we'll have to buy the DVD set to see this. Oh, well, new Muppet stuff is good stuff. Now where's The Muppet Show Season 4 on DVD?
Just a reminder that this Tuesday, August 3rd, Lionsgate will be releasing Henson's Place, the 1984 Jim Henson documentary on DVD. Be sure to pick up your copy of this sure-to-be fantastic DVD of an incredibly rare television special!
This past weekend, ComicCon was held in San Diego, California and the Muppets were represented quite well throughout the Con. Check out some of the highlights below...
- Amy Mebberson, Roger Langridge, James Silvani, and others were present for a Muppet Comics panel and comic drawing/signing. Mebberson drew Miss Piggy as Lady Gaga for a fan. Langridge drew numerous sketches as well.
- Karen Prell and Red Fraggle also appeared live at ComicCon, leading an audience in a sing-along and performing a few times. Red was also interviewed by SFX.
- Hallmark announced their next Muppet ornament for Christmas 2011: Beaker singing his hit "Ode to Joy."
- The Jim Henson Company announced that Cartoon Network will be airing shorts starring Henson puppets called Hot Dog TV, beginning with "Fiendish Footlong" on August 2 and 6:58 PM.
- Archaia Comics and The Jim Henson Company announced that they will be producing "A Tale of Sand," an unproduced script by Jim Henson, into a comic book.
- eFX Collectibles had the Kermit and Rizzo photo-puppet prototypes on display. Still no word on when, or if, these will be released.
- A Muppet fan made a "Dearth Nadir" (Gonzo as Darth Vader) puppet and brought it to ComicCon.
