This in the first The Muppets film since the deaths of Jim Henson and Richard Hunt in which Rowlf, Scooter, and Dr. Teeth talk. Rowlf's only line is "Awwww!" at the breakfast table, when he finds out they're having bologna. Dr. Teeth's only line is "Shalom!", on the way to a bar mitzvah. Scooter was voiced by Richard's brother Adam Hunt, and his line is "Get your Gonzo T-shirts. Only ten bucks!" See more »

I liked it
24 August 2005 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

I saw "Muppets from Space" when it first came out and thought it was a lot of fun. It's silly, good-natured and has some clever adult humor that kids won't pick up on - as well as featuring zany stuff that the kids will love.

Since then I've seen it numerous times on TV and it always entertains. The story is fairly original for being a Muppet movie: Gonzo begins to wonder what he is, and if there are any more of his species out there in the vast beyond - and suddenly one day he's abducted by aliens who reveal themselves as his distant relatives.

Placed back on earth, Gonzo is unable to convince anyone - but is sure that his family will soon arrive on earth to take him home.

As far as the Muppet movies go this isn't the best one - my favorite is still "The Great Muppet Caper" with Charles Grodin followed by "Muppets in Manhattan" - but if you're in the right mood you'll find this is an amiable little family comedy that isn't insulting or boring. The cameos are great fun for any film buffs out there and the basic juvenile humor will appeal to children.
