Muppet Treasure Island was awesome. I want to see that again.
Incidentally, Tim Currie is in the new Red Alert game as the Russian premier or similar.
'We're all mad here. I'm mad, you're mad." [said the Cat.]
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "Or you wouldn't have come here."

I love Ernie and Bert - always think of myself as more like Ernie (madcap) but think in fact I am more like Bert (sensible). I love the routines they have and in similar vein loved those 2 grumpy critics - someones will remember their names - who sat in the balconey on the Muppett Show making sarcastic remarks.
Female character - Miss Piggy - bit of a control freak, occasional hissy fits, bit deluded about own abilities and appeal. THis is no doubt a fogey comment - but aren't the female muppets these days all a bit nice, sparkly and girly compared to a great such as Miss Piggy with a bit of attitude?!
Ps Re chocolate - look away if needs be - did you read that Hefner got chocolate replicas of his "girlfriends' breasts, bottom and vagina? Not sure about biting into those or about the role of chocolatier.
