Shameless Plug For The Muppet Movie, But It Works!
24 March 2007 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

This was all about the release of the Muppet Movie, a big screen venue critics claimed would "never work." Jim Henson was no one's fool, though, so he threw a M4TV disco party to hype (celebrate) the release of this movie, and he invited the whole of Hollywood!

Many huge stars turned out, to dance (disco!) with the Muppets, and get their mugs on the small screen and usher in a new big screen age of the Muppetverse. This was fun, and commercially very savvy. Henson was a God. Long Live Jim Henson!

This rates an easy 8.8/10 on the M4TV Scale from...

the Fiend :.
