‘The Muppets’ Clips: ‘Cleaning the Theater,’ ‘Show Pitching,’ ‘Modem’ and More

'The Muppets' One-Sheet FinalWalt Disney Studios and Muppets Studio has provided us with several clips from their upcoming release, The Muppets, opening in theaters nationwide. We managed to sift through the pile and find a few that don’t appear to have been released as of yet — at least not through official channels anyway, so without further ado:

Our first clip is ‘Modem’ in which Gary, Mary and Walter (or Jason Segel, Amy Adams and Walter respectively) have alerted Kermit to the fate of the Muppet theater and so they take off along with Kermit’s butler, 80s Robot at the wheel. How to find the rest of the Muppet gang? Let’s just say friends don’t let friends use 1200 baud, 7 bits, even parity and 1 stop bit. Yeah, you kids know exactly what I’m talking about.

‘The Muppets’ Soundtrack Interactive Preview on YouTube

'The Muppets' Original Motion Picture SoundtrackWalt Disney Records has just released an interactive preview of the original motion picture soundtrack to The Muppets on YouTube. As boring as a video for a soundtrack might sound at first, Disney has added its own color-coded commentary from the Muppets themselves via text blips, allowing the video to offer up some eye candy in addition to ear candy (and that’s asking for a lot of cavities).

When Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater, they help Kermit reunite the Muppets to stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater.
