It wasn't that bad.
7 February 2002 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

I felt very compelled to reading the first commentary about this Muppet special. While it wasn't as good as the other "Tales from Muppetland" specials, it was pretty good. It had puppeteering, full body characters, and something I never noticed on any Muppet program marionettes. Maybe I saw it before somewhere, I don't know. But still, this was a great special.
