yes they are great
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:03pm People Like Us:

there is something funnier about not seeing these people sing... it's funnier imagining them singing

this sure ain't mel blanc!

katamari doggacy!
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:15pm Rich in Washington:

this is a great episode. Even though I am saddened to remember that for some unthinkable reason, I gave my Thai Elephant Orchestra CD away.

I saw the rolling katamari as soon as I heard the first few notes. <3

The 8-year-old me is currently blowing breakfast cereal out my nose at the sound of that flea circus.

isn't this all just wonderfully visual music

my cat is taking NO NOTICE of this music

like to hear how these critters would do their take on 'ram'
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:19pm People Like Us:

I know the Beatle Barkers is sort of obvious but it's making it even funnier
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:20pm People Like Us:

oh yes, would love to hear a Muppet Ram
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:20pm Andrew Waterloo:

It certainly is visual... it would be a heck of a thing to fall asleep too.
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:20pm northguineahills:

@Cori: And after that, I started to have Pizzicato Five playing in my head.
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:21pm Rich in Washington:

I just today heard the parody Muppets doing Jesus Christ Superstar.
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:22pm People Like Us:

funny you should say that, Rich...

i thought the voice of woody was a woman?

I think I'm starting to figure out the theme for tonight's show. Rats, right?
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:22pm Rich in Washington:

Whoa! This is amazing!!!

Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

For a time, Irwin had some cartoon music for his intro song. That was maybe 5 or 6 years ago.
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:25pm People Like Us:

"sentient beings" - as in non-human music
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:25pm dale:

how'd the old codger make it into this show?
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:25pm ranjit:

45 minutes of Warner Brothers cartoon sound effects! www.youtube.com...
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:26pm People Like Us:

Irwin did indeed - elephants parade maybe it was called, something like that - Carl Stalling
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:26pm Rich in Washington:

I remember when those Carl Stalling CDs first came out, I got it and tried listening to it while working and for some reason they made me feel weirdly anxious. Like maybe I thought an anvil was gonna drop on my head or something.
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:26pm Phil:

Muppets doing Jesus Christ Superstar is downloadable at 'name your own price'. Yeah - I went for it...
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:27pm Jon Leidecker:

hey is there a THEME
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:27pm JakeGould:

Ranjit, you know what I want to hear? Source sound effects for Japanese sci-fi cartoons (Sentai even) and source sound effects for Shaw Brothers films.
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:27pm Rich in Washington:

I am being flooded with cartoon and video game memories! Nostalgia overload!
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:27pm Jon Leidecker:

hey is there a THEME

thanks Phil for alerting me to Muppet Christ Superstar which made me want to do this show
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:31pm Jon Leidecker:

having difficulty determining the theme though
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:32pm Phil:

Bing bing bing bing...

Muppets are weird. Jesus Christ Superstar is weird. This is off-the-scale.
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:33pm People Like Us:

I want to play the whole album
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:33pm Phil:

Much love!
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:34pm Mr. Lowry:

Is this for real?
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:34pm Phil:

It's all really good - no buyers remorse for me.

Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:38pm Bethany Ryker:

The "Solitary Bee" sound comes from a very nice animation, I'm sure it can be conjured up online! Thanks for conjuring up the memory!
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:38pm Ken From Hyde Park:

There are plenty of Simpsons or South Park songs that could probably fill an hour. But then, we've heard them all. Do or DIY would mean unknown songs from unknown places. 84% of people here don't know where Ukraine is.
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:39pm People Like Us:

very nice premium it was too
thanks for sitting in on my show :)))))
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:39pm gen ken:

when you want to do your "All Jesus Christ Superstar Show" be sure to include Robin Kahn's acapoco version. It's fabulous!
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:39pm Sam:

The cartoon music mixed with the Pac man music was really cool - it kind of summed up all my childhood memories at once.
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:39pm People Like Us:

yes, I had Robin lined up for that show but then the Muppets took over (hello Gen Ken :))) )
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:40pm Cori:

Honky Tonk Woman! How great! Haha...
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:40pm People Like Us:

this track is almost overwhelming
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:41pm Phil:

JCS by Muppets is on Bandcamp if interested
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:41pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Dog step...goose step. What is next? Elk bugling?

This track makes me nervous, it makes me think of all the nesting Canada Geese near walkways and common areas in this city.
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:43pm MrFab:

hey Vicki, I recently posted the album from whence comes these singing geese:
and Ken "tweeted" it.
And I posted "Muppet Christ Superstar" yesterday!
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:43pm Phil:

Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:43pm People Like Us:

why do sheep sound like people pretending to be sheep?
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:44pm Robert:

That's OK, Ken -- at least 84% of the people IN Ukraine don't know where they are.
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:44pm Sam:

Does Kermit play the part of Jesus? I think they should have called it Kermit Christ Superstar, that has a better ring.
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:44pm People Like Us:

oh! Thank you Mr Fab - fantastic
I will grab tomorrow
Kenny had the goose track but I didn't know where from, got it from him a few years ago
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:44pm Rich in Washington:

those goats that sound like people yelling really creep me out.
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:45pm Phil:

Remember the Monty Python sketch about the 'very clever sheep'?
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:45pm Sam:

They're just whales.
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:45pm Robert:

As to that question, Vicki...meh.
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:45pm Rich in Washington:

Yes, Mr. Fab was where I first saw Muppet Christ! Thanks, senor Fab!

I played on a military base in Sebastopol, which is now not the Ukraine but anyway hi
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:46pm Jon Leidecker:

I get it
The theme is chickens

what shall I do next week?
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:51pm Sam:

In "The Muppet Movie" they're trying to make him sell out to a frog leg restaurant, but he has integrity and stands up to the bullies, and was ready to die for it, except that Animal saves him at the last minute. Sort of a similar Christ-like character.

can you devote an hour to the art of playing the musical saw?

Next week - nose whistles.
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:51pm ranjit:

play all those frustrating cutups that keep a song from ever resolving
  Mon. 4/21/14 7:52pm Jon Leidecker:

I think a show with a theme would be good
Some of this week's choices were a little confusing, given the stated theme of chickens, but still very very good throughout
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:52pm People Like Us:

maybe I'll just do the whole lot that you suggest between now and the top of the hour
Avatar Mon. 4/21/14 7:52pm dale:

or the spoons. or eefing.
