Leth and Myler Take Jim Henson's Fraggles on a "Journey To The Everspring"

From comicbookresources.com

It's time to head back down to "Fraggle Rock" once again, and this time "Adventure Time: Seeing Red" writer Kate Leth and veteran "Fraggle" artist Jake Myler are leading the expedition.

In October, the duo team up for "Fraggle Rock: Journey to the Everspring," a four-issue miniseries from Archaia that marks Leth's first trip to "Fraggle Rock", and Myler's third, as he previously drew "Fraggle Rock" and "Fraggle Rock: Monsters from Outer Space."

Leth and Myler count themselves among the ranks of millions of people who have been affected by the Fraggles, and consider themselves particularly lucky as a pair of fans who have been able to put their stamp on the Fraggles in comic book form.

We spoke with the duo about putting their mark on a beloved property, some of the story's finer details and the overall importance of Jim Henson in their lives.

Vince McMahon Takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Challenged Kermit

This social media phenomenon known as the “Ice Bucket Challenge” involves dumping a pail of ice cold water over your head and then challenging three other people to do the same within 24 hours. Don’t want to accept the task after being summoned to it? Donate $100 to the ALS Association which fights amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. 

WWE Chairman and CEO, Vince McMahon, was recently challenged by Triple H. Needless to say, Vince did the challenge and then challenged three people. One of which was Kermit the Frog !! He also challenged Donald Trump and Maria Menounos. 



Stay tuned to see if Kermit takes up the challenge. Should be a GREAT video moment !!

VIDEO: Kermit and Pepe the King Prawn celebrate 35 years of Muppets movie magic

From Entertainment weekly - Inside Movies
by

Thirty-five years ago, the Muppets made it big in Hollywood with their first film, The Muppet Movie, which told the tale of how Kermit and the gang first came together. The film was a hit, an instant classic, and fans have followed them faithfully in seven sequels, adventures that have taken the Muppets to London, the Big Apple, the 19th-century, the high seas, and even space.

This week, their latest film, Muppets Most Wanted arrived on Blue-ray and DVD. In the comedy, which co-stars Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, and Ty Burrell, among others, Kermit is mistaken for a master criminal named Constantine and thrown into a Russian gulag while the real crook uses the Muppets’ European tour to go on a crime spree.
Entertainment Weekly sat down with Kermit and Pepe the King Prawn to discuss the Muppets’ cinematic legacy of laughter, beginning on that swamp log and stretching into the future—for a possible Muppets horror movie.



[Note: I misspoke in the video when I said to Kermit that he and Miss Piggy married at the end of The Great Muppet Caper. Their wedding was the climactic event of The Muppets Take Manhattan.]
