'The Muppets' One-Sheet FinalWalt Disney Studios has provided us with this list of character descriptions and brief quotations from the cast of Disney’s The Muppets, which opens in theaters nationwide on November 23, 2011.

GARY (Jason Segel) is loyal to his brother Walter—the two do everything together. “Gary is from Smalltown, USA,” says Jason Segel (TV’s “How I Met Your Mother,” Forgetting Sarah Marshall), a longtime Muppet fan who created the role with himself in mind. “He’s very naïve, sweet and innocent, and he’s very much in love with his girlfriend Mary. He’s torn between his brother and growing into a new phase of maturation where it’s time to be with his girlfriend. He’s lived with his brother forever so that is his big struggle.”

Photos/Videos: Disney Delivers Princesses, ‘Pan Am’ and Muppets to Fashion’s Night Out

Christina Ricci and Karine Vanasse - Lisa Perry 'Pan Am' Fashion's Night Out Event

With exception to the Fashion Week-long ‘In-Flight Experience‘ from ABC’s ‘Pan Am’ which we shared yesterday, last night’s epic third annual Fashion’s Night Out event had me running cabbing uptown and downtown, east side and west side throughout Manhattan in an attempt to catch everything I could Disney. From Disney Store, who participated for the first time, to Lisa Perry hosting ‘Pan Am’ to Opening Ceremony’s Muppet X collection with Miss Piggy, it was all one huge thrill ride of ‘E Ticket’ proportions (bad airline/Disney theme park double entendre-intended).

Video: OK Go Spoofs Selves in ‘Muppet Show Theme Song’ Video

Muppets: The Green AlbumThe official music video for the ‘Muppet Show Theme Song’ has made its debut today, as the Muppets Green album becomes available for sale from retailers such as Amazon.com and iTunes.

The song, written by Jim Henson and Sam Pottle, opened and closed “The Muppet Show” for five seasons in the UK and US, from 1976-1981. The new track was produced by OK Go and mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT).  Says singer Damian Kulash, “I’m so excited about working with the Muppets that I can hardly sleep. Collaborating with your idols is a huge thrill no matter what, but when your idols are fictional characters it seems downright impossible. The 10-year-old me was pretty good at imagining outrageous futures, but this surpasses even his capacities.”
