The Muppet Show

by Paolo on 6/13/2008

I think I can say with confidence that there is not, nor will there ever be a show like The Muppet Show. Even though nostalgia plays an important role in my review, I cannot help but to recognize the talent of performers such as Frank Oz, Richard Hunt and of course Jim Henson whose genius hand can be seen on everything The Muppets did. Literally. The DVD product itself is good. The art on the box is not exactly creative although it conveys the content of the box accurately. The case is sturdy and will protect the discs albeit not being practical since in order to get to the disc at the bottom you have to remove the one on the top first. Artifacts! Lots of them. I'm not sure if the root of the problem lies within a poor compression transfer or the source used to compile the discs is degraded or low quality. In any case, this is a great product and worth having while a high definition series is released, if ever. Read More

Editors Note
Note Statler and Waldorf might have heckled from their spot in the balcony box, but THE MUPPET SHOW remains one of TV's most enjoyable shows for the whole family. With wacky humor appealing to kids and parents alike, this variety series featured all the favorites in Jim Henson's gang: Kermit, Miss Piggy, Animal, Rowlf, Fozzie, Rizzo, Gonzo, and more. Beaker meeps, the Pigs in Space try to save the universe, and Kermit just tries to keep the show from falling apart. With musical numbers, sketches, backstage insight, and less-than-helpful cooking tips from the Swedish Chef, life at THE MUPPET SHOW is never boring. In the third season, the beloved Muppets are joined by celebrity guests including Sylvester Stallone, Liberace, Alice Cooper, Raquel Welch, and Gilda Radner. A true TV classic, this collection presents all 24 wacky episodes of the third season.

Jonathan Boudreaux, TVDVDReviews.com ...just as funny, imaginative, and magical as you remember, and...will make a welcome addition to your collection.
Keith Phipps, The Onion A.V. Club ...a place where avant-garde performance art...the post-'60s counterculture, and tomorrow's kids all made sense together...
MaryAnn Johanson, The Flick Filosopher There may be no greater touchstone among the childhood entertainments of Generation X...
Randall Cyrenne, Animated Views ...one of the finest variety shows in television history...an essential part of any TV-on-DVD collection.
