Re: GG: Glenn & the Muppet Show
What a wonderful idea! Why have I never thought of it? Now we have a
whole new loss to lament. It's just so perfect that now I'm sure it must
have been done and the footage has been lost or something. (Never mind
that I've got a library of Henson material and I know darn well that
Gould is not listed as a guest star in any of the three seasons.)
I just can't get over the Kermit/Glenn version of the Winterreise...
Fear of live performance? The Muppet Show went through takes and takes
and takes! It was recorded in a studio under the most articifial of
conditions! Glenn would have loved it! And seeing how at home he was with
animals, I can't see why he'd not get along with animated felt and foam
rubber. And he certainly had the wacky sense of humour that would fit in
just fine with Henson, Oz, Hunt, Nelson et al.
I've got an odd feeling that the dates won't coincide properly, though.
The Muppet Show was very near the end of Glenn's life, I think. Not the
time when he'd be most comfortable about something like this.
Thanks for the memory (?)! (Now I've just got to get it out of my head,
or at least tell myself firmly that it never happened...)
