It's time to play the music, It's time to light the lights...


RUN! Don't walk to get The Muppet Show: season 1.
It's better than I remember as a child. Yes, I'm so old I remember them premiering.
It's magical how some material and a hand can make a living persona.
Also, humor that is funny without being topical. Now that's talent.
So go! Go now! And get yourself a copy.
Till then, here's a special gift....

Right-O Ed!

i snagged this puppy right off the shelf despite being broke last week and i concur that it is still incredibly funny and somehow as you said "even better than i remember" as i too am an old fucker and remember anxiously awaiting each new episode. I am just loving how much character and emotion henson and crew were able to get across with some felt and a hand or two... I definitely plan on studying and drawing up some muppet-ish characters real soon.

I can't wait to have them all!!!

I wonder if there will be problems with the Mark Hamill one with him as Luke?

Also, is it just me, or does Sandy Duncan have a great ass?? ;)

You've got some great stuff on your blog. Thanks for the cool muppets clip. I forgot how amazing Henson and his crew were. It takes a lot of talent to wrap some cloth and rupper around your arm and make it seem like a living, breathing character.

Henson always kicked ass. I've been anxiously waiting years for a Muppet show collection to be released, and now that it is... I'm broke. But I'm gonna steal the checkbook from the missus just for this occasion, I'm sure she'll understand, after all, its the Muppets!
