Did You Know?


According to Kevin Clash, the decision to have Clifford as host and Kermit the Frog as director, was made because Jim Henson had requested, in the event of his passing, that any future Muppet Show should not be hosted by Kermit. See more »


[Clifford gets into the supply cabinet instead of going through the doors onto the set]
Kermit the Frog: Clifford, that's the supply cabinet!
Clifford: I know that, it's a nice supply cabinet too. Nice and quiet. Let's cue the announcer shall we.
Kermit the Frog: Cue the announcer.
Nigel: Go Go Go Go Go Go Go!
[supply cabinet is pushed on set]

The new version of the Muppet Show twenty years later. The new host of the show is Clifford, a Jamaican buisnessman, but Kermit still puts it all together. Like the original, it had a new guest every week that participated in the zaniness, and still, the crank Statler and Waldorf and in the balcony. The show mostly focuses on new characters, with the only main characters on this that returned from the original were Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Lew Zealand, Statler and Waldorf, Beuregard, Sam the eagle, Bunsen and Beaker, Animal(who returned even though the rest of the band is pretty much gone) and Rizzo the rat. Good show, but not great.

My rating-B.
