Fantastic and Rarely seen
23 December 2004 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

I was six years old when I saw this on TV, it was one of the first things my family ever recorded with a shiny new VCR, and it was something we had on tape for fifteen years (until my brother taped over it ... grrrr!).

The through-line that connects all the clips of Jim Henson related projects is an awards show style format. Every Muppet you've ever seen is in the audience sitting around their respective dinner tables. All the Fraggles sit at one table, all the Muppet Show monsters at another, Sesame street characters make up another table etc. etc. etc.

On stage is a long table and podium ALA Dean Martin's Celebrity Roasts. Kermit, Fozzie, Piggy, Ernie, Bert, and a few others sit along that long table, all dressed in tuxedos! They each come and introduce different clips of the Muppets history, with EXTREMELY funny banter that puts the pathetic banter of real awards shows to shame. Ernie and Bert introduce the Sesame Street clips. Ernie pulls Bert's nose right off his face, laughing wildly. Bert gets annoyed, asking why Ernie did that. Ernie uses the gag to set up the clips saying, "That's the old nose joke, Bert! Don't you remember? The first time we did that was over fifteen years ago!" The special also shows rare footage of commercials Jim Henson made, clips from his old Sam & Friends show, and Rolf the Dog on the Jimmy Dean Show. All around this special was amazing, I wish they would rerun it or put it out on DVD.
