Exclamation So it turns out Muppets don't cast reflections in mirrors

True story, folks

It's because they are living creatures without souls

Any time you see one interacting with a mirror, it's a trick shot involving multiple Muppet bodies and a clear pane of glass

It's only when they're being puppeteered that you see this happen, though an unpossessed Muppet body shows up in reflective surfaces just fine

I visited the workshop and it was spooky watching a Muppeteer place her hand in a Muppet as they both faded out of the mirror

Okay, thanks

That's actually a common trick in all sorts of live-action, not just with puppetry. It can be difficult to get a shot with an actor and their mirror reflection without also getting a reflection of the camera, so a lot of the time, they actually shoot the back of some double's head and have the actor play the "mirror reflection" on the opposite side of a transparent pane.

Who’s your favorite Muppet? Mine’s Gonzo.

He has a unique look, he makes funny jokes, and he has a strange relationship with female chickens.

As a child I'd say I was equally taken with Grover and Big Bird on Sesame Street, and Gonzo and Animal on the Muppet Show

But my favorite part of Muppet Family Christmas is still when Big Bird shows up, so I may have to go with him

How Spirit-filled can a creature be if it takes a hand up the rear to animate it?
