The Muppet Madness Tournament got off to a sprinting start last week! With Muppet fans worldwide voting for their favorites (and countless news sites and blogs covering the online event), it was an incredible flurry of activity. Sorting through all the votes with me are Joe Hennes and Ryan Roe from, as we present the matches for Round 2.

Follow the Muppet Madness Tournament events on Twitter, and join in the insane fun and artwork on the Muppet Madness Facebook Page!

You can create high-quality custom lanyards at The MuppetCast is also sponsored by Bell, Book & Comic. Life should be more Fun!

An all-new single DVD release of Dog City is coming on June 8, 2010.

Jim Henson’s Fantastic World is coming to the National Heritage Museum in Lexington, MA this April. The exhibit will remain there until June 27.

Not surprisingly, Jason Segel has signed on to be the first non-Muppet cast member of the new upcoming Muppet film…that he is currently writing. Interesting that his character in the movie is the one tasked with bringing the Muppets back together to perform again, which in real life is kind of what he’s doing.

The claymation Aventures of Bert & Ernie will be coming out on DVD on April 6, 2010. This is a collection of recently-created short pieces that show Bert & Ernie in a variety of adventurous settings, and are a lot of fun!
