"It's time to get things started on the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, muppetational... SYFY WIRE Conversation with Muppet Guys Talking!"

Forgive us for the slight variation on the traditional The Muppet Show theme song lyrics, but our tweak certainly captures the excitement we have for our exclusive sit-down with legendary Muppeteers Frank Oz, Fran Brill, Dave Goelz, and Bill Barretta about their brand-new, web-only documentary, Muppet Guys Talking.

Produced by Victoria Labalme, she joins the four longtime Muppet performers in our studio as they all talk about how the documentary came to be, the incredible work environment that Jim Henson created and curated for his collaborators, the enduring work of Muppet performer Jerry Nelson (who is in their documentary but passed away in 2012), and the very personal impact the Muppets have had on so many lives around the world... including our host, Dany Roth.

Let us know your Muppet story in the comments and be sure to support the Muppet Guys Talking doc, available on March 16.
