Did You Know?


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 »

Cute and adorable!!!
22 July 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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!!!
