The basic premise of this film is that Gonzo is an extraterrestrial alien. 20 years earlier, in a "Veterinarian's Hospital" sketch on The Muppet Show: Raquel Welch (1978), Rowlf suggested that Gonzo should "leave his body to science fiction". See more »

I have been a Muppets fan all my life and was not disappointed with "Muppets From Space"! I liked the story and thought Jeffrey Tambor was a hoot as the likeable villain. The other human cameos were hilarious, too. My one complaint is that we didn't see much of the Swedish Chef, Rowlf, Stadler and Waldorf, the Electric Mayhem, and others. Hopefully the next Muppet Movie will be better than ever!!!
