Trivia

Baab the Sheep was performed by eleven year old Kristina Donnelly, who was given the opportunity through the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Kristina wanted to be an actress in a Muppet film, but when given a choice between that and voicing a puppet of her own (the suggestion made to her by Steve Whitmire and Dave Goelz), she chose the puppet. Near the end of her time filming Steve and Dave presented her with a special edition of the Hensonville News Observer and a bag full of The Muppets merchandise. The puppet she voiced, Baab, was also given to her. See more »

Tough To Beat Gonzo & Rizzo
25 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good special-effects, funny and likable characters and an interesting story all made this 1999 'Muppets In Space' movie much better than I anticipated.

This one featured more of Gonzo and Rizzo, my two favorite characters. The movie, in fact, centers around Gonzo. Miss Piggy played a lesser role than normal, which also pleased me.

A tiny bit too secular-liberal in parts but overall, not offensive and definitely entertaining. It looks great and sounds good on DVD, too.

Some have said this was the best of the Muppet films and perhaps that's true. I wouldn't argue.
