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...

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...

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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

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. [imagebrowser...

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...

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...

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...
