Everything seems a bit off in this one. The puppetry is an innovative blend of hand puppets, full-body costumes and marionettes, but the presentation is just too bland to stand alongside other more impressive 'Tales from Muppetland' specials.
Everything is just a bit muddy and off, even Kermit seems a little odd here (although I love his little dance at the beginning).
Never liked this one as a kid, thought I might have a newfound appreciation for it now as a Muppet fan and all, but no dice. I found myself bored and disappointed. Check out Henson's much better Muppet fairy tale specials from this era, like "Hey, Cinderella" or the masterpiece "Frog Prince". "Musicians of Bremen" however, probably won't hold the attention of you or your child very well.
