Marisa Berenson, Shel Silverstein, and Coolio?
23 February 2013 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

Dancing Russian pigs, a wig race in 1978 that somehow features Coolio's locks, and a "wedding sketch" between Kermit and Piggy that everyone but he knows is real...plus a guest star who might make you say "who?". But Marisa Berenson is a perfect part of this wonderful tapestry. She does a rendition of "You're Always Welcome at Our House" that blows your doors off, mostly because it seems far too demented for children. It's doubtful that this song (by Shel Silverstein) would ever make the airwaves today on a kid's show. But that was part of the genius of the Muppets...an ever-so-faint acknowledgment that we live in a world of dysfunctional perversity, which it does no one any good to hide from. Marisa, dressed as a little girl, sweetly sings of all the ways she kills and stores houseguests. There is an achingly subtle sexuality going on, as her legs are naked, and her dress a bit high. She also gives a look into the camera that's disturbing, in just the right way. Amazing. At the end, will Kermit say "I do"? The final shot, of Statler and Waldorf throwing him out of their box, answers that question.
