I really miss this show
23 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Man, why did this show have to end? I mean "Muppet Babies" is probably the most quirkiest and original ideas for a Saturday Morning cartoon (what a LOT of cartoons or animated shows these days lack). I mean the most famous Muppets as kids and the interesting idea to splice live action segments with animated segments and not to mention that Imagination is everything moral. Sadly, I don't think kids these days have enough imagination, due to PC crap being produced.

But hey, I heard sometime soon, they will be releasing this show on DVD! I am so happy!

NOTE: In the episode where Gonzo's chicken Camilla is missing, there is one scene in their that uses some footage from "The Dark Crystal", another Henson classic.
