User Reviews

Such a great show!
28 November 2005 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

stars: Jerry Nelson as Floyd Pepper and various sins.

Jim Henson as Nigel, Dr.Teeth, Swedish chef, Waldorf, Rowlf and Kermit.

Frank Oz as Sam the Eagle, George the janitor, Animal and others.

Richard Hunt as Statler, The Wrestler, Greed, Abraham Lincoln and other

Fran Brill as Janice and various sins.

Dave Goelz as Zoot, wrestler 2 and various sins.

This is obviously a pilot to the show, but also very different than the show. We've got Nigel the band conductor backstage before an Electric Mayhem concert. Sam the eagle is there with him, and they end up playing chess. Meanwhile the Electric Mayhem has a concert. The sub-plot stories are Swedish chef, talking Mount Rushmore, Statler and Waldorf at home, two wrestlers that end up tied up and the Muppet Show's At the Dance segment. Meanwhile, Nigel, Sam and Electric Mayhem's Floyd introduce the deadly sins. Very entertaining and great! You can find this show as a special feature on Muppet Show season one.

TVPG A plus.
