With a lot of hype over the past several months, The Muppets premiere today, 9/22/2015 on ABC. Many of the promos have shown more adult tendencies towards its characters that appeal to a wide range of audiences. More specifically towards adults, but still having a lot of the basic child characteristics that originally made the Muppets so popular in the first place.
Unfortunately not everyone is excited about this new rendition of Jim Henson’s creations having a new show. The organization known as the organization known as One Million Moms who have been shown to be vastly conservative in the past regarding all forms of media and advertisements, released this statement about the Muppets premiere:
“ABC hopes children watch the show and predict they would enjoy some of the humor, but 1MM would disagree. It is not the show it once was. ABC has ruined “The Muppets.” How many parents want to explain the punchline of sexually charged jokes to young children?
Many parents unknowingly will let their children watch an episode only to find out its perverted nature too late, unless they are alerted ahead of time. 1MM and others need to get the word out to families to avoid this program at all costs.”
With that being said, the One Million Mom (1MM?) literally just informed all kids of the show that their parents do NOT want them to watch, even though the factor of the show being about Muppets already gave them a bit of notability but also gave a huge amounts of publicity to a fledgling show that may have had doubts to its success. Way to go One Million Moms! You just helped secure the success of this show.
Let’s be clear, the Muppets will be more adult, somewhat. Sexual references will be made, that’s been clear. Relationships will also be made, and from the promos, it looks like Kermit may be in the center of several issues that many adults have been a part of from the beginning of forever. Current events will be discussed and the drama of politics may even be brought up. But this is a prime time TV show. What did 1MM think was going to happen? This show does not appear to be geared towards young children anyway. It is on at during Primetime and looks like it is geared towards adults, young adults and teenagers. Regardless though, if younger children were to watch the show, is it so awful that parents actually TALK to their children about some of these references and explain what is being discussed?
On another note, this will not be the play Avenue Q and I do not think that we will see Muppets have sex on screen. More than likely, Kermit and the gang will be in some sexual situations but actual sex shown on a non-cable TV show, very unlikely. Innuendos will more than likely be made, but is that new? Innuendos have been done on TV on both adult and kid’s shows, again, since forever. Look at the Flintstones, look at Animaniancs, look any any cartoon from any kids show made in this century. It is going to happen.
I am excited to see the Muppets and I am watching the show tonight! Are you going to watch it or do you have it DVR’d to watch later? Usually I do not watch stuff live, but I have a strange motivation to watch it right away for some reason.
Over at Hollywood Reporter, it is being published that a stand alone Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is being made. YES! I always loved Obi-Wan and I felt like the prequels never did him justice until the very end. The cartoon series and in-between comics got him right. Stephen Daldry is attached as the director. I am personally hoping for a movie with Ewan McGregor coming back. Have you seen him lately?…
It’s comic book day! What’s your comic book load look like? There was a lot this week that I tried to fit in, but still I wasn’t able to get to everything.

One of my online friends, who is also a super sexy artist, Kwok aka The MonkeyGoGo, has made a couple different GayComicGeek pieces in the past. He did a five a series where my character was slowly getting undressed. But recently he let me know that he also started to work on one drawing but was never able finish. The piece was with me being splacked by his own Marco character. He unfortunately no longer has the same computer and cannot complete the pic to update with my tats, add splooge, etc. However he said I could show the work that he completed.
I want to encourage Kwok to create his own Patreon page so that he can continue on his art. He’s got excellent talent and I’d love to see more of his work being explored. It doesn’t hurt that’s hot as all hell and I’d love to just see vids of him working. What do you guys think?
