Statler & Waldorf

Statler & Waldorf have a movie review podcast: bizarrely, it seems to be audio-only. That's right: listening to puppets. I think maybe this is the direct podcast link.

    That "direct podcast link" has video of some actual puppets.

    I hope they get the funding for a video version, but I'd imagine that's highly unlikely.

    I'm a little irritated that you and I weren't even offered an audition...

    Not only is it listening to puppets, but it's not even the original S&W actors voicing the puppets! What a cheat!

      That doesn't really matter. The Muppets haven't really been up to snuff since Jim Henson stopped doing the good drugs. His death just accelerated their decline into irrelevant banality.

      Anyway, aren't they just reviewing a bunch of Disney movies?

      To be fair, at least one of the original voices is, um, dead...

    Blech. Someone shoot those writers STAT!
    Also the voices aren't anywhere close to the originals.

    Although FWIW I see video in the first link you posted.

    I've been watching (yes, watching) the s&w show for the last year or so. Didn't realize there was an audio-only version. The last few episodes have been sub-par but the series has had its moments. In the earlier episodes they had "outtakes" if you wait past the credits; they haven't done that lately.

    I view the episodes here (using Win2K/ie):

    It's the Charlie McCarthy show for a new era.
