Oh, here’s something nice. iO9 found some old test footage that Jim Henson & pals shot for the original Muppet Movie back in 1979 and it is just delightful! There’s Fozzie and Kermit discussing the existential realities of being a puppet instead of a flesh-and-blood being. And then Kermit and Miss Piggy discuss the financial realities of real estate ownership. It’s so rare that you get to hear your favorite puppets just RIFF, you know? Let it all hang out. Sit in the moment. Use the space. It’s fun! And trust me, we could really use something like this today, right guys? What with all this DEATH and DESTRUCTION all around us. Will it ever end? Will we ever get any rest? Not yet at least. So watch this video:
