Muppet*vision 3-D, more appropriately, 4-D, can only be seen at the Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World, Orlando, FL and also at California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort, Anaheim, CA. This "4-D" film begins with an entertaining 15 minute pre-show in the waiting area. The movie is shown in a huge theater on screen that is twice the size of a typical movie theater. 3-D glasses are required to see the film correctly. Antics abound in this hilarious show that is true to the classic Muppet Show. Kermit narrates while we visit the Muppet Lab which, of course, has it's difficulties. This is where we meet Dr. Bunsen Honeydew's newest discovery, Waldo - the spirit of 3-D, who causes some trouble. Next, Miss Piggy sings a song where Bean Bunny tries to improve the show. Bean Bunny's good intentions do not satisfy Miss Piggy, and disheartened, he runs away with Waldo and the search is on..in the theater. Finally, Sam Eagle is in charge of the grand finale, "A Salute to All ... Written by

Hey, Waldorf, what is this anyway?
Oh, it's one of those 3-D movies. Better put on your glasses.

That's no mask.
Ooops. Sorry, lady!

Okay, this thing is so cool. It's a crazy out of control Muppet show in 3-D. It is hosted by Kermit who first shows us some 3-D craziness with an ironing board falling(it belonged to Zoot), then Fozzie showing us some 3-D tricks. We see Muppet Labs. Miss Piggy gets a number. Sweetums comes on with a paddle ball. We have the final number choreographed by Sam the Eagle, and it goes all wrong. Before the actual show, there is a fun 13 minute pre-show starring Scooter, Gonzo, Sam the Eagle and Bean Bunny, which really makes waiting for the show entertaining. The way animatronics are used in the theater is great including animotronic Statler and Waldorf and Swedish Chef. It's silly, but its fun.
My rating-A. The show: 15 mins. Pre-show: 5 mins.
