Trivia

Following the first production meeting, Kermit says "I guess it's time to get things started," a line almost identical to the words he spoke at the beginning of each episode of "The Muppet Show." See more »

Quotes

[Kermit has asked the other Muppets to be available for one-on-one interviews with the documentary crews]
The Great Gonzo: [to the camera] One-on-one interviews? What an overused device. You tell the camera how you really feel, and then they cut back to you saying something completely different. I hate these interviews.
[cut back to Kermit's meeting]
The Great Gonzo: I love those interviews! Great device!

How the mighty have fallen
27 November 2015 | by bigjaysfavsSee all my reviews

The Muppet always worked well as a show about a bunch of friends making a show. This has moved away so far from the atmosphere that made the Muppet that it's hardly recognizable as such.

Muppets are creative artists that sing and dance. They do not produce a talkshow and they certainly do not star in a mockumentary. It is just not a muppet thing.

Writing is poor, most of the jokes are so not funny that all they lack is a pathetic drum riff to punctuate them. Add to that rather poor lighting and a perpetually moving camera that induces motion sickness and you have a show that doesn't even manage to induce the slightest smile.

I urge anyone to watch at least one episode. Switch it off after 10 minutes and start looking for an old episode of the real Muppet.
