Gothamist expected the premiere of The Muppets' Wizard of Oz at the Tribeca Film Festival to be star-sutdded, but who realized that it would also mean a huge blowup Kermit in the nabe? This reminded Gothamist of a memorable sighting of a blowup Kermit the night before a Thanksgiving Day Parade: He was caught in a compromising position. Anyone, we invite you to offer a caption in the comments.

The Muppets' Wizard of Oz will air on ABC on May 20. Also, Gothamist interviewed the creators of Avenue Q, Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez, who confessed that the musical grew out of attempts to write a Muppet movie.
