The Muppet Show Cast Reunites and Andy and Randy Return

We've got something of a News Update for you today, Muppet fans! Some big new Muppet things have just come out of the pipeline and they must be shared.

First off, in this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly (#1125/1126 - Oct. 22/29, 2010) the fine folks at the magazine released their 20th Anniversary double issue that features tons of classic casts reunited once again. The classic casts include the cast of Back to the Future, The Lord of the Rings, Married... With Children, and The Muppet Show. That's right, The Muppet Show. The issue features a gorgeous, brand new two-page photo spread featuring The Muppet Show cast. Now, I won't show you the picture because I want you all to go out and buy the issue for yourselves... but I can tell you that it includes...
  • Kermit the Frog
  • Miss Piggy
  • Fozzie Bear
  • Gonzo
  • Dr. Bunsen Honeydew
  • Beaker
  • Statler
  • Waldorf
  • Scooter
  • Sweetums
  • Rowlf
  • Dr. Teeth
  • Sam Eagle
  • Zoot
  • Janice
  • Swedish Chef
  • Sgt. Floyd Pepper
  • Animal
  • Rizzo the Rat
  • Yolanda the Rat
  • Bubba the Rat
  • Two chickens
Also included on the following page is a page-long interview with Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, and Gonzo where they talk plastic surgery, The Muppet Show, the upcoming movie, and more. It's fantastically hilarious. Don't believe me? Here's a little taste...

EW                 What’s your secret for keeping your good looks?

Gonzo             Frequent bog snorkeling.

Fozzie             My jokes get old so I don’t have to.

And that's not even the best part! Trust me when I say that this is a must-own for Muppet fans. I've got the picture spread framed and hanging on my wall already and I'm desperately searching for another issue just to have. Go out and buy this magazine!

The other exciting thing to happen in the Muppet world was that yesterday, two new episodes of The Muppets Kitchen with Cat Cora debuted online. The episodes feature four characters you probably never expected to see in this series--and three I never expected to see again. The second episode, "Slumber Party" also features an amazing "Snuggie" parody with Kermit and Miss Piggy. Watch it!
