Whatever happened?
19 May 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I never watched the original Muppets, in fact, I was never a great fan of them. However this show was more than that. It was not about your usual children's puppet show; it was light hearted entertainment that was well written and had guest star roles that perhaps some of the most well established entertainment shows couldn't get a hold of considering it's short run. I had always wondered what had happened to this brilliant show; am I only one of a few who thought this?
