Just yesterday an unexpected opportunity allowed me to visit Jim Henson's Muppet Vision 3D at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. After over three decades, guests still are delighted with this show, and laugh frequently at its memorable one-liners. We take the opportunity to deconstruct the film portion of this experience to understand how so many elements were combined to make this immersive experience. In the process it was often referred to in marketing materials as Muppet Vision 4D with the 3D crossed out. While this does contain some spoilers, know that our conversation will help you to appreciate this Disney World attraction like never before.

It's only one more Gobbledygeek ‘til Christmas! This year, instead of discussing the weird or cynical sides of the holidays, Paul and Arlo are embracing sincerity with a look at 1992's The Muppet Christmas Carol. The first Muppets feature film following the death of Jim Henson is a faithful adaptation of the classic novella, with Gonzo as Charles Dickens himself and none other than Michael Caine as Ebenezer Scrooge. The boys discuss why Caine's decision to play things straight is key to the film's success, the film's technical wizardry, the beautiful songs by Paul Williams, and why it's the greatest Christmas film of them all. Plus, Paul and Arlo recount a very strange year and get honest about the difficulties of the holiday season.   NEXT: have a safe and merry holiday, regardless of what you celebrate, and a happy new year.

2021 was dead, to begin with. Dead as a doornail. And to lay it to rest, we've embarked on a most joyous recording: a commentary track for the beloved The Muppet Christmas Carol, cherished by many a soul as the best adaptation since Charles Dickens first put quill to parchment. Our brothers in felt's first outing after the death of Jim Henson, this holiday classic boasts career-highlight performances from Michael Caine, Steve Whitmire, and Rizzo The Rat as Himself. But did it hold a candle to the Scrooge chronicles before and after? And would the BOP Crew be able to reflect on childhood nostalgia, Muppet politics, and the  evergreen social relevance of the story before the brisk runtime was at an end?

Katie and Bridget are now Muppets who sing songs about hating Scrooge and loving Christmas as they re-watch The Muppet Christmas Carol! It's a rendition of the Charles Dickens classic tale all about how Ebenezer Scrooge, played by the very serious Michael Caine, gets visited by the following ghosts: the ghost of Christmas past, who is played by a demon child from your nightmares, the ghost of Christmas present, who may or may not be Hagrid, and the ghost of Christmas future, who is also scary but a little less cause he doesn't talk. Oh yeah and there's Muppets! And singing! Honestly this is just a great one! Released in 1992, it was directed by Brian Henson and was the first Muppet movie released after the death of Jim Henson.

Growing up, I was a huge fan of Jim Henson's Muppets, and I still am. One of the best things to watch around the Christmas holiday season is “Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas,” among other Henson specials. For Part 1 of our discussion on Emmet Otter and Jim Henson, I've invited a friend of mine onto the podcast to speak about their experience as an intern for The Jim Henson Company and their fandom for the Muppets. Melissa Scopelitis is a friend of mine that I met on a Muppet Facebook Group. She is an alumni of St. John's College from St. John's University (class of 1999), who was an intern at Henson for one semester. Here, she discusses how she got into the Muppets, how she came upon her internship, her experience in helping to set up the Jim Henson Exhibit at the Museum of the Moving image in Astoria, NY, and her funniest experience at a Muppet convention involving a cast member of “Muppets Take Manhattan” and a member of Cheech & Chong.” We also discuss our love for Emmet Otter and other timeless Muppet Holiday specials.

Yes, I stand by that statement. If this special had run every year like Rudolph or Frosty, I believe it would be considered a holiday classic that everyone watches each year. The problem is, it only aired two times, then was relegated to home video never to be seen again. But this is a shame. In this episode, I want to share 6 reasons why this is the perfect Christmas special. It's also unique as it's the only time the Muppets, Sesame Street, The Muppet Babies, and Fraggle Rock all appear in the same show. And it's the last appearance Jim Henson would make with the Muppets.  Show Notes: A Muppet Family Christmas Support the Show: Patreon.com/80s
