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.

A disappointing outing
24 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

The concept isn't that great: a quick run-through of old stories like 3 Little Pigs, etc. But then again, the Muppets are there and could spice things up, right? Wrong. This video is one of the very few Muppet projects that may entertain kids, but not adults in the least bit.

Maybe their biggest mistake here was that they didn't feature many Muppets. In fact, it's just Gonzo, Rizzo, Kermit & Piggy - with brief appearances by Fozzie and Robin. No Animal, no Sam the Eagle, no Swedish Chef, Electric Mayhem, Rowlf, Statler & Waldorf, Scooter, Bunsen or Beaker. I don't know why, because most of the performers of these great characters are there, and there is too much repetition with the characters they DO use.

Otherwise, it's just not well-done. These stories have been done better elsewhere, and there is none of the signature Muppet zaniness makes their TV shows and movies so great. They're just puppets here, doing extremely rushed, 5-10 minute renditions of these classic tales with no payoff.

Maybe kids will like it, but I found it extremely dry and generally boring, as an adult and a Muppet fan. They're recent movies have been tackling classic stories and doing it well. This is a waste of talent.
