a must for muppets fans
5 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This should be watched by all fans - fascinating to see the background scenes and how the chaos and mayhem on screen isn't what is happening with the performers - good use of footage and commentary from all the the team.

You should be pleasantly surprise by all the work that goes into bring kermit and co to the screen, this is shown by the enthusiasm by the team and you get to understand how the show had such high production values.

Also gives a great insight into how many stars of the day were lucky enough to work with the muppets.
