It’s really ironic when I think about it. Yes, you probably know I’m a recovering Star Wars collector. But, the two lines I was really collecting that caused me to create TVFT were The Muppets and World of Springfield Simpsons. Strangely, there aren’t a whole lot of reviews here for either of those. So I […]

Muppet Show Sign DIY

This is one of those things that kind of fell off the site when I redesigned it a couple years ago. I really regret that it’s taken so long to get it back. Of course, having a Muppet movie in theaters doesn’t hurt either. Back when my Palisades Muppet collection was still growing, I really […]

Guitar Hero Guitars

Mrs. Nerd and I were in a Dollar Store recently while we were waiting on two of the pups to get their haircuts at the groomer a couple stores down. Typically, these places are hit or miss. Mrs. Nerd is an office supply junkie, so she always likes to get pens, notepads and the like. […]

Muppet Comic “Muparitaville”

The Muppets have had a number of musical guest stars over the years. Sometimes they would do variations on their songs when they came on the show. Jimmy Buffett did a song on Kermit Unplugged titled “Mr. Spaceman”.  So, it seemed a natual to Muppetize Margaritaville in a comic strip.

Muppet Comic “James Pond – Nosefinger”

Tuxedos always remind me of James Bond. That being said, it was a short leap to go from Kermit in a tux to James Pond.  Goldfinger is probably my favorite of all the Bond films. In it, the laser scene is one of the most memorable. This is my Muppet homage to that scene.

Muppet Comic “Hamalot”

If you think about it, the Muppets and Monty Python aren’t all that different. Both of their TV programs were basically skit shows. The skits ranged from musical to topical. The only real difference in the formulas of the shows was the age of the target audience. Although, the Muppet show has a lot of […]

Muppet Comic “Stage Fright”

I was in the mood to create a little Halloween comic with Fozzie.  The hardest part of creating the Fozzie comic strips is coming up with his jokes.  Mrs. Nerd often comes up with the one that I finally end up using.

Muppet Comic “The Noble Prize”

As an engineer I have a soft spot in my for Bunsen & Beaker. In today’s world Beaker would probably be a hapless intern. I had the idea for this after getting the “Stepping Out” versions of the Muppet Scientists. Part of the inspiration also comes from a segment of “The Muppet Show” featuring Bunsonium.

Muppets Comic “Fozzie’s Comic Spotlight”

My favorite Muppet is Fozzie Bear. He never was the funniest bear, but he gives it his all every time he’s on stage. I had originally done this comic to show of my custom balcony.

Sesame Street Easter Eggs

Mrs. Nerd and I both grew up with Sesame Street. Frequently, we both remember similar things from the show. Back then there wasn’t a Dora or a SpongeBob. Cookie Monster was allowed to eat all the cookies he wanted. And nobody was talking ill about Bert and Ernie. And for the younger readers, Elmo wasn’t on the Street yet. I […]

ToyFare Exclusive Vacation Pepe

I’ve got maybe a half dozen or so of the ToyFare exclusive figures. (Ironically, I never recieved the Radioactive Homer that I mailed for.) I like quirky characters and that’s mostly what ToyFare had as their exclusives, Lara Croft, Guardian, etc… One I missed out on was the Vacation Pepe from Palisades Muppet line. I already had the regular one […]

I miss Palisades’ Muppets. I really do. They really took me back to being a kid and watching the first runs of the Muppet Show. Second, they were part of my collecting that Mrs. Nerd appreciated as well. We’d spend some time with each new figure swapping tales of just being kids and enjoying all of the goodness that the […]
