A Yay and a Nay!

Bloggie friends!!

Today I offer you a Yay! And a Nay!

Yay for The Muppets Movie!!! And made not just with any ol muppet but the original cast!!!

Source

There’s Beaker! And The Eagle! And the two old men whose names escape me!! And Kermit and my Ultimate Idol!! Gorgeous Miss Piggy!

Nay to the remake of Footloose. Nay, Nay and thrice Nay!! The Footloose film of 1984 is a classic and strangely of its time too and there it should remain. Good grief!

Charlie says: I give you my Other Evil Eye!


Yesterday was Thursday!! Today is Friday! LOL!! Another Yay!

I agree with you. Leave well enough alone. Tell Charlie to cast that evil eye on those responsible for the Footloose remake.

ABBY said...

OH Charlie
I SAY YAY to you all day long!

The Teacher's Pets said...

I agree with you! Why do we need another Footloose when the 1st was fine as is? And as far as I'm concerned the Muppets are incredibly adorable and they can do whatever they want! I'll always love them!

Summer Ross said...

Nay for sure to remake footloose! Have a fairy fantastic day!

Brian said...

It looks like Charlie is being Foot Loose too. Hey, my Dad is a cookie monster!!!

Ann Best said...

Jen and I love the Footloose classic. We'll never watch any other version!! And Jen especially LOVES the Muppets. How can you not love Piggy! And the others...what incredible creations of an amazingly creative mind!!!

Yay for the Muppets!! and your awesome photograph!!!!

Jemi Fraser said...

LOVE the Muppets!!! Beaker is my favourite ... or maybe Animal! Love! :)

The Chair Speaks said...

Oh Charlie, you certainly know how to live life; so relaxing on your mom's bed!
What?! Footloose, a classic in 1984! Didn't seem too long ago. Oh dear, how time flies!
Have a great weekend.

Theresa Milstein said...

Loved Sesame Street AND The Muppet Show.

I agree - Footloose is beyond remaking. It's a classic. Are they going to make Casablanca next? Who can improve on a boy fighting for his right to dance?

Niki said...

aww I love Beaker :o)

Katnip Lounge said...

ACK! I couldn't stomach the first footloose. I too give you my other eye...

Lisa Potts said...

I wholeheartedly agree with both your Yay and your Nay.

I love Beaker! And Fridays! And Kevin Bacon's Footloose.

Au and Target said...

We love muppets and Footloose! Yay!

Thanks for dropping by and your words of comfort. Au ate a little so we're hopeful. If only he'll keep eating, he should be OK.

Lynda Young said...

I'm with you on the Footloose remake. It kinda belongs in the 80s. It was great for its time.

fairyhedgehog said...

Yay for Friday! Have a happy weekend!

Margo Benson said...

Are the two old guys Statler and Waldorf? I adore The Muppets!

I'll give Footloose a miss - 1984 was a Cyndi Lauper and Madonna in her Desperatley Seeking Susan guise for me!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Charlie - are we getting a sleepy head pose for Friday - bet you are winding down for the weekend. Jenn will be home soon and she'll be sad she hasn't got to work tomorrow!!

Manzanita said...

Being eons away from the Muppets, original or otherwise, I go along with the original. It's always the best. Or maybe I'll just take a nap on a nice soft comforter with Charlie.
Love and Peace.

Hart Johnson said...

I think I'm with you on both of those!

Esme said...

I wish I could be snoozing in bed with Charlie.

have a good day.

Brigid said...

I totally agree with you, I loved the Muppets and now I can watch it again with my kids,
Footloose, please no!!

Marg said...

Love that Miss Piggy. Charlie you sure are looking terrific. Hope you and your Mom have a great week end.

The Golden Eagle said...

Hurray for The Muppets! :D

Have a great weekend!

Rene said...

I also say noooooo to the remake of Footloose. That was my favorite movie as a middle school kid, and I watched it so many times. I will not watch the remake.

Mr Puddy said...

Charlie,
I didn't know your type is Miss Piggy!!!!!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Old Kitty .. I agree .. the original cast and the Nays too ..

Charlie is the most sensible - resting easy in a comfortable place ..

Today is the end of Friday - Yay oh Yay .. cheers Hilary

Lydia K said...

Oh, I loved Footloose! Though I never though Kevin Bacon was my type, even if he could dance really well.
;)

Clarissa Draper said...

I haven't heard they were making these movies again. I love the Muppets though.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

No need to remake Footloose, but we can always use another Muppet movie.

Tracy said...

Charlie says, 'please leave me alone; I'm meditating!'
I love the Muppets movie; the original one mostly but they are all fun!

Ginger Jasper said...

The muppets brought back memories of watching with the children. Love that photo Charlie, you look so comfy.. Hugs GJ xx

Ellie said...

Beaker was my favourite character - I wanted to take him home. No. Not that. Honestly, you have a dirty mind. LOL.

RosieC said...

Oh, how did I miss that they're remaking Footloose? What were they thinking? I think that deserves a letter of complaint!

I want to be lazy like Charlie on a Friday...

Joylene Butler said...

Charlie looks just like my Buster, who spent 2 days in the hospital last week because he couldn't poop. It's still astonishes me that many of my family and friends didn't appreciate hearing from me after 10 o'clock in the evening when Buster had his first poop in over a week. For heaven sake, it was a big event. As for sequels, it's rumoured that next year is the year of sequels. Too sad. Footloose is a classic! What are they thinking!

Words A Day said...

I loved animal!

The muppets theme tune always puts me in a good mood!

As for footloose, I agree, I saw it again a while ago...if they remade it now they'd pretty every one up too much - the theme song was great though!

Guinevere said...

Footloose shouldn't be remade, I agree. The original version is perfect as is!

have a great weekend!

LTM said...

I was very disappointed when it *wasn't* Animal playing drums at the Grammys...

And I so agree re: Footloose remake. Nay nay nay, says the horsie~ :D scratches to Charlie! <3

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Is there a new Muppet movie or is that the old one? I love the Muppets!!
I also love CHARLIE! and YOU! ((((hugs))))

Melissa Gill said...

Hard to imagine a remake of Footloose. I loved the fist one. Although not all remakes are bad. I've seen the new True Grit twice. Fabulous movie. I'm watching the original right now. It's pretty good, but I really think they did better on the new version. Charlie's looking quite relaxed there.

India Drummond said...

I absolutely agree with you on both counts!

Angela Ackerman said...

I agree with that NAY--some things should not be remade and Footloose is one of them. GHOST would be another I think.

Have a great weekend!

William Kendall said...

Charlie is adorable.

Beaker's the best muppet.

soggibottom said...

Statler and Waldorf, they often used to pass the cottage window. REALLY !
Hi Charlie baby :-) x x x
Muppets for ever............. Give Robin a break he will grow up one day. :-) x x x Think he might sit around our pond some days in the Summer.
For all those that don't remember Robin was Kermits little cus (I think) X

klahanie said...

'Yay' to the 'Muppets Movie' and most definitely a 'Nay' to the remake of 'Footloose'. Actually a nay to the original Footloose film! :-) And thanks a lot that flippin' Footloose song is now whiling around in my head :-)
And Charlie, Penny sends you some pawsitive wishes :-)

The Creek Cats said...

I really don't like it when they remake great classics like Footloose! Ahhh! They need to leave that movie alone!! No movies from the 80's (my fav movie era) should ever be touched. If they remake 16 Candles or Fast Times at Ridgemont High, I'm really gonna throw a fit!

Charlie, we love seeing you, cutie!

Susan Fields said...

I agree - the original Footloose is a classic and should be left alone! You tell 'em, Charlie!

Madeleine said...

That would be statler and waldorf. I always loved the original Sesame Street and The Muppets. Jim Henson was a hero of mine.
I don't think I ever watched footloose! :O)

Medeia Sharif said...

I haven't seen Footloose yet, but I'm always up for a Muppets movie.

I have a blog award for you.

Brian said...

Hey, I'm giving you an award, it will be on my blog on Tuesday.

Jacqueline said...

Hi, lovely Jenn and handsome Charlie=we've missed visiting with you guys...Hope this finds you both happy and well...We hope you both enjoy a wonderful, fun week ahead, sweet friends...xoxo...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki

Katie Anderson said...

Cute pic of Charlie!

KarenMcG said...

I agree with you on the nay, nay to Footloose! Don't mess with the good stuff...many times the remakes don't even come near the original in appeal.

Charlie, Charlie. You look good on that side, even if it is your other evil eye.

Thanks for stopping by Kittens 'n Things.

penandpaints said...

Did they remake Footloose?, that must have passed me by, just as well, leave it alone I say! I love the 80s one, the theme tune and the song at the end.
The muppets! I used to have a Kermit the frog, oh, :( I wonder what happened to him?
Hope you've had a fab weekend! xx

Angel-Star said...

hey, nay and yay you say! he he he!
love to charlie and kitty

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Charlie looks so comfortable! I loved the old Fraggle Rock Muppet characters!

seybernetx said...

Well, someone thought it worth remaking Psycho (1960 and 1998 and Nosferatu (1922 and 1979).

I suspect Footloose will survive.
