Do u remember?
2 April 2004 | by Groverclevland2224See all my reviews

i remember when it aired that there was a long brake before new episodes came on the air. the last epidose before this brake had gonzo launching himself out of a cannon, then u heard a loud crash. i soon heard on the news that the gonzo puppet had done damage to the set when it was launched, they then took the break to fix the set. gonzo never launched out of a cannon again on the show. does any one else remembner this. this was a classic muppet piece of art better then that crappy nbc muppet christmas movie. they should release this as a dvd set with the full series and never before aired footage and episodes. it lived up to the muppet show if it wasnt better.
