Trivia

Kermit's difficulty in finding a guest star for the reunion show parallels the real life history of The Muppets. Until Rudolf Nureyev's appearance in The Muppet Show: Rudolf Nureyev (1978), it was very difficult for the producers to find celebrities willing to appear on The Muppet Show (1976). See more »

This Big-Hearted Revival Put a Big Smile on My Face
25 February 2012 | by (Bradenton, FL) – See all my reviews

Warm, charming and funny, just like the Muppets I remember from my childhood. I'm not often one for musicals, but this one - aided by the brilliant combination of fuzzy puppet singers and Flight of the Conchords composition - hits all the right notes. It's funny without nudging into blue territory, a talent that's becoming more scarce by the minute, with a heartwarming reunion storyline that slowly reintroduces the cast and reminds us why we grew to love them in the first place. Loaded with unexpected cameos and sly winks at the troupe's long history, it's clear that a lot of love went into the making of this picture; the screen positively resonates from beginning to end. Though I was hesitant to revisit this old territory at first, by the final act I was grinning warmly and nodding right along, utterly entranced.
