Did You Know?

Goofs

When Rizzo comes in and whispers something to Kermit during the shoemaker and the elves story, it is obviously not Rizzo's voice. This is because Steve Whitmire was already performing Kermit in this scene. The Muppets typically use this method of substitution and then dub in the correct voice later, but it appears they overlooked this instance. The voice is almost certainly that of Dave Goelz.

Nothing to write home about but certainly no failure
10 June 2002 | by (Chattanooga, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

The Muppets are still the Muppets. I agree that since Jim Henson died, it seems to take a lot more effort to put together something worthy of their original off the wall charm, but it can and has be done in Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppets Tonight!. Muppet Classic Theater shows us that the focus has shifted to Gonzo and Rizzo since Dave Goelz and Steve Whitmire are among the few Muppeteers still dedicated exclusively to Muppet projects. Granted, these stories are rushed and simplistic and the songs are mediocre, but the work Goelz and Whitmire put in reminds us that these are still the characters we love. It's much like seeing your favorite actors in a bad movie. The story isn't so hot, but you can tell they've still got it and will go onto do better things.
