    He'll never admit it but I'm almost certain John is an actual furry. I don't mean this in a bad way - I'm one myself, but he's definitely a furry.

    John Oliver is correct - The Muppets are just fantastic and Jim Henson should be memorialised with a holiday.

    Dear John Oliver... I would love to 'run the races' and be the first guest on your show. Via video, of course. While wearing masks, because I hear "internet corona 2222" is coming in like, well, 199 years. Never can be too careful. :D

    "Puppets hanging on hooks is something no child should see." I was a bike messenger in NYC in the 70s and early 80s and often made deliveries to CTW where they filmed Sesame Street and all but one time just left the delivery at the front desk. Once they sent me backstage to hand off the package and I walked by all these muppets on a dark stage hanging on hooks with their ping pong ball eyes wide open. I'm sure their gazes followed me across the stage and back. Muppets hanging on hooks is something no adult should see either.

  • Vaperius

    I love the implication that it had to happen three times before they moved the mascots somewhere else, as to not scar children that stumbled upon the mascot storage closet.

    Muppet trivia: The second half of the Swedish Chef story is the best part - Normally, one puppeteer does the mouth and one of the hands, and a second puppeteer does the other hand, following the main puppeteer's lead. But with the Swedish Chef, Frank does BOTH of the hands, and Frank and Jim were constantly F^%$ING with either, trying to make the other person crack. Frank's hands are constantly squirming all over in random ways, occasionally INTO THE CHEF'S MOUTH, just to mess with each other.

  • jx_oxbeats

    the frank oz camera test they talked about

  • djlilpp

    John Oliver is most definitely a Beeker.

  • David Armillie
    David Armillie This is the link to the clip John talks about at the very end, the Muppets just full out in character for a camera test in 1979! This is why they were all so deeply in character at recording time; they were in character with or without the camera rolling.

    Americans don't want to compete in globally played football so they created American Football, a sport that is neither played with a ball nor mainly with feet, so they can win it each year. Even the roof organization is CONCACAF (... football) but Americans were too scared so they called it MLS. And it's reeeeaaally embarassing that Stephen thinks that "there is a world championship in football in UK each year".

    Football, or Soccer, doesn't last long enough to have an intermission. It does have one, but the game isn't long. While I'm Irish, I can probably safely say we watch games in the afternoon, in a pub, and it's up to the bar to provide food, not you or your partner!
