‘Muppet Babies’ Reboot Happening in 2018 and This is Why I’m Excited

Muppet Babies Reboot

The internet took a break from talking about Donald Trump briefly this week when Variety confirmed the upcoming Muppet Babies reboot that was previously scooped by ToughPigs. If you haven’t read the ToughPigs scoop, I highly recommend it. It has character descriptions and even some sample dialogue.

Muppet Babies was a very influential part of my early childhood, and this reboot comes at the perfect time. The wife and I are about to have our first kid, and it makes me so happy to know she will be able to watch reboots of Muppet Babies, especially since episodes of the original are so hard to track down.

The new show will be catered to the very young crowd (see Disney Junior) and probably not very watchable for adults. This is coming from someone who would rather watch cartoons over any live-action television, but I doubt it will be a show for us. However, I’m sure it’ll be a fine show to watch with your kids. Why am I so excited about it then?

Nick Stoller Says the Muppet People Are Working on a New TV Show
It kills me that Muppets Most Wanted tanked at the box office. I loved it, but I think it just didn’t stand a chance going up against Divergent or whatever it’s called. I hope Stoller is right about Disney working on a new TV show, I’d hate for Disney to abandon the Muppets.

‘Power Rangers’ Getting a Reboot Feature Film by Lionsgate
This doesn’t surprise me, and actually it’s not the most far-fetched thing to reboot. It’s basically superheroes, giant robots, and Kaiju. If they leave out the goofier aspects (or embrace them) from the show, it could make a decent movie.

Great photo.

This guy collected 75,000 McDonald’s items over 50 years
I can’t imagine having the dedication to collect only one thing, let alone the money, time, and space it would take to have as large of a collection as this guy. His house looks like a McDonald’s museum. Crazy.

Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Baxter Stockman Fly Version Figure
I’m not sure what to think about this. In face, I’m almost losing the will to keep up with the Nick figures. There are some cool ones out that I don’t have, it’s just time and money consuming to hunt them all down, and I’ve got too much junk as it is. What do you guys think about the new Baxter Stockman?

Cool Stuff: High-Res, Textless Movie Posters

Robocop

File this under That escalated quickly. One minute I’m checking out this cool post on Reddit featuring a high-res, textless version of the iconic poster for RoboCop, and the next thing I know I’m browsing a hundred-page thread on Blu-ray.com featuring even more textless poster art. If you follow THS on Instagram (and really, why wouldn’t you?) you know I have an office with walls full of geek art. I’m always looking for cool stuff to frame, and I’ve had a couple things printed just based on high-res art and photos I’ve found online.

Textless Posters

I’ll leave it to you to browse the two threads (one for PG-13 and R films, the other for G and PG) to find what appeals to you most, but here are a few highlights.

Missing Links: Cancelled TMNT Toys, Retro Spaceship Gaming Room

There were a lot of cool links the past few days, but these stood out as the coolest, at least in my opinion.

Unreleased Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Toys
Cody over at Crooked Ninja wrote up an awesome article highlighting some cancelled TMNT toys from back in the day. I’d never seen most of these, and some of them are really awesome! It’s an interested part of TMNT toy history and you should definitely check it out.

Awesome Retro Spaceship Gaming Room
I found this on Reddit and it’s amazing. Someone with a very fancy Victorian home in the UK converted their “otherwise useless” attic into a gaming room that looks like it jumped right off the screen of an 80s Sci-Fi movie. The whole house will only set you back around 4 million euros.

Muppets Most Wanted Soundtrack Listing Revealed
My favorite thing revealed by these track listings is that Jemaine Clement is in the movie.

Star Wars toys photos look more realistic than the real Star Wars
These photos are awesome. Every time we get snow in Indiana, I always wish I had a bunch of Empire Strikes Back toys so I could go outside and take some Hoth-inspired photos.

Vintage Valentines Cards!

Vintage Valentines!

This year I finally remembered to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time before it was too late. For a while I’ve been hoarding unopened Valentine’s Day card boxes from the 80s and 90s, with the intention of just giving them out to people. For some reason I always forget to get it going before it’s too late, but this year I am on top of it. I ordered a bunch of new Valentine’s and have been preparing for a massive Vintage Valentines Giveaway!

It’s not a contest or anything, I just want to send you Valentines. I am pretty obsessed with vintage stuff and I get a kick out of seeing Valentines cards from when I was younger, and I figured that a lot of you would too. Who doesn’t remember decorating your cereal box and getting bombarded with cards in elementary school? I remember saving the most awesome cards in each box for my best friends and crushes.
