11/27 in Review: The Muppets, Booster Gold, ParaNorman and Nickelback

The Muppets appeared in their first theatrical release in 12 years last week. In related news, a group of ventriloquist dummies are attempting the release of their own major motion picture. Production is scheduled to begin as soon as a deal is reached with craft services to provide enough children’s souls for the dummies to eat.

26 pound gummy bear was also unveiled to the public last week. He was discovered with the remains of an 18 pound gummy Timothy Treadwell.

Syfy has ordered a Booster Gold pilot script, based on the comic book featuring a glory-seeking superhero from the future. Upon learning of the existence of Booster Gold, an openly gay Scrooge McDuck expressed a desire to be inside of him.

Animated comedy thriller ParaNorman is scheduled for an August 2012 release. The trailer, set to Donovan’s “Season of the Witch”, includes zombies, ghosts, and a swarm of insects bursting from a teddy bear’s face. The effect was reportedly created by playing an audio cassette of Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger” in a Teddy Ruxpin doll.

Finally, a Motown cover of Nickelback’s “How You Remind Me” was released:

It was later revealed that making Nickelback listenable was the work of Rumpelstiltskin, who wanted a more difficult challenge than turning straw into gold.
