I was saddened but not surprised to find that this film is not available any more.It seems like the favourite things from my life are slowly being eliminated. Besides foods disappearing from restaurant menus and store shelves, certain fondly-remembered movies are drawing blank stares from so-called movie experts. Meanwhile, garbage flicks fill the shelves, and the local cineplex. Some movies are more than just a film...they are a harbinger and a beacon. Here is a perfect example: "The Muppet Musicians of Bremen" is a film that opened the door for modern block-buster such as "Shrek" and "Toy Story". It proved that a format labeled as "kids-stuff" could delight and entertain people of all ages, simply by treating the subject AND the audience with respect. If you EVER get a chance to see this, drop your work, your lunch or your baby (well, maybe not THAT one), and rush to the screen. You will laugh, you will feel a little choked up, and you will never forget these Muppets.
Jim Henson lives on, through works like these!
