Out of Print!
24 December 2002 | by (90001) – See all my reviews

Not sure why this one went out of print. In my opinion, this is the funniest thing to come out of Jim Henson's workshop. When I was a kid, it kept me and my brothers and sisters cracking up from start to finish. One line that was memorable and made us laugh till our sides hurt was when the man said to the donkey, "Le-roy! It's all yoooooure fault!" You have to see it to know what I mean. Hopefully this will someday come back in print. This is probably just a cult sort of thing, though; I grew up with the Muppet Show and the Muppet Movies.
