Ouch! What an absence! How embarrassing. Well I went on vacation and kind of lost track of a lot of projects I’d been working on before that point.
You know, the problem when you have messages and weak continuity is that you often just undermine and contradict yourself all the time. Now, the Muppet Wiki says this was the second episode filmed, so the character traits weren’t refined yet. There are some things I like about this episode, and there are some things I think are just really irritating. Mostly irritating.
And now I will tell you about them at length!
So our episode starts with Doc showing Sprocket a party horn and insisting it doesn’t have a name. He tries to give it some new names, including “Pukarina.” Sprocket seems to know that this is a lot of BS. Well, I’ve also heard them called “noisemakers.” Having a STUPID name doesn’t mean it DOESN’T have a name.
But it was a simpler time.
