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

As Good As the Original Muppet Show!, 26 August 2002
Author: (robocoptng986127@aol.com) from U.S.A

If you're a fan of the old Muppet show from the '70s and the '80s, you'll like this one! If only Jim Henson could be alive to see it. I'm sure he'd like it too. All our old favorites are here. Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Rizzo and a new guy: the host, Clifford. I remember one episode where Billy Crystal guest starred and reenacted the scene from City Slickers where he delivers the calf with Kermit and Fozzie. During the delivery scene, Fozzie says that if it isn't there in 30 minutes, it's free. I'll never forget that part, it's so funny! This was a pretty good show. It's not around anymore. It didn't even show reruns, because, one line of the theme song goes: "we got a show for you, guaranteed brand new". Which singles out reruns I guess. Those of you who remember this show, you know what I'm talking about. That it was a great one.
