Unbelievable, you would of thought that everyone had forgotten about the world famous, multi award winning television series. Then 25 years later famous guest stars, including the likes of Alice Cooper, Julie Andrews, Debbie Harry, the directors, writers, fans of the series and yes not to mention the Muppets themselves look back at the world famous show 'The Muppet Show.'Gonzo the great talks about the Muppets creator Jim Henson and what he did before the television show was made in 1976, including talks about 'Sesame Street.' Then the guest stars look back on appearing on the Muppet Show saying what a highlight it was and how they took the likes of Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and others so literally they forgot they were puppets. Looking at many famous clips of the Muppet Show you cant disagree, including the Swedish Chef cooking 'chicky in da basky' and Gonzo trying to ride his motorbike into Statler and Waldorf's theatre box [the two famous old hecklers of the show}. The ending is very moving talking about the death of Jim Henson but the muppet legacy still lives on films and television after nearly 5 decades.
