New Muppets Preview Clips Feature Montages, Electric Fences
11.09.11 by Mandy
It's been nearly thirty years since a traditional Muppet movie has been released in theaters. More recently, Jim Henson's Muppets have been featured in remakes of classic novels or made-for-TV Christmas specials, but this month's The Muppets seems to be far more in keeping with fuzzy classics like The Muppet Movie and The Great Muppet Caper. And while some may think that with so many clips out there the whole movie has been given away, we're always excited to catch another glimpse of Muppet mayhem.
The first clip features Gary (Jason Segel
), Mary (Amy Adams
), Kermit, Animal, and Walter chauffeured by a Johnny 5-esque Muppet named "80s Robot" as they use a montage (complete with some classic '80s rock playing in the background) to gather the rest of the Muppets together. We particularly enjoy the jab at cable-news pundits.
The second clip features Gary, Mary and Walter on a surprise visit to Kermit's house. At the end though, we're not sure if Walter is really driven to meet the famous frog or if he has some sort of strange fetish.
