Dance numbers, rampant silliness, Chris Cooper rapping, "This is taking too long. How about we pick up the rest via a montage?", Eighties Robot, musical puns, traveling by map, "Now you know how we've felt for the last 4o years! OH HO HO HO HO", muppet ninjutsu, snark with heart, and gratuitous Jack Black abuse. Two felt appendages up!

It's a big ol' slice of nostalgia. A lot of it you won't really get if you didn't grow up with the Muppet Show and the movies, but from the sound of it that didn't bother the kids in the audience, for whom the general mayhem was enough. As a bonus, you also get a fun new Toy Story short (if only Happy Meal toys were really that creative. I kinda want a DJ Blue J).

Trailers for Pixar's Brave (story seems a bit cliché, but the visuals look lovely) and Aardman Animation's next stop-motion feature, about pirates, which looks hilariously madcap.

I'm hearing really good things about it. Also I keep realizing that Kids These Days did not grow up with the Muppets, and every time it's a WHAT THE HELL revelation. How is growing up without Muppets even an option? And how am I already old?

I have a lot of younger cousins, so I'm faced with this constantly. I reference great entertainment classics and get blank expressions in return. About the only thing we have in common is Star Wars, but of course they saw the prequels first...
