When the Muppet's made their debute back in 1969 on PBS's "Sesame Street’’, the CGI special effects so common in current movies were not possible. Even the word "muppet" is a hint of how the aminated the show's stars of Kermit and Miss Piggy, come to life though a techique of hand and puppet string operations. For the new 2011 Holiday movie releases, a new Muppet's movie is targeted to reclaim some of the old school charm to the millions of kids who grew up loving the Muppets.
Jason Segel, director and star of this new Muppet film, hopes to mixes nostalgia into the story line, where Kermit comes out of his lonely mansion to help rescue Fozzie from a seedy Vegas bar where he performs with Muppet knock-offs so they can restore the franchise to its former glory. Puppetry is one of the oldest effects to animated objects to a life like image, and new Muppets movies remains at the top of the game.
