muppet babies = excellent
30 December 2005 | by a19chris2000See all my reviews

I remember watching Muppet Babies when I was a kid and loved it. Used to get up early on a Saturday morning especially to see it. It was great. You saw all our favourite Muppets as they were at nursery and I followed their adventures avidly. They were cute and cuddly (just like I was!!) and some of the episodes I remember were quite funny, especially Gonzo.

The style of the Muppet babies was accurate in so far as it followed that which was first shown in the Muppet show... the live action baby Rowlf in one episode of the show was a match for the cartoon baby Rowlf in Muppet Babies. So there was some degree of continuity. It was in cartoon format and remember thinking at the time it would be good as a puppet (or Muppet) show, but I suppose that won't happen now. Bring it out on Region 1 DVD ... PLEASE.
