A good special from Jim Henson.
7 February 2002 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

This was a fantastic special. Jim Henson, and his puppeteering crew did a great job on this humorous take on the fairy tale classic. It also introduces us to Robin Kermit's nephew, and Sweetums (who scared me, and I had nightmares about that muppet for years! No seriosly it's true!) a large full costumed muppet. All in all this was a great special that shouldn't be missed.
