Movie Reviews

2 out of three ain't bad
A. Guyton | Fredericksburg, VA United States | 08/18/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This disk is worth having just for the Harry Belafonte episode. It's FABULOUS, and includes music worth introducing to children.

The Linda Ronstadt episode is very flat. I love The Cat Came Back- but that's about it. Linda's numbers are downright boring, and not very Muppet-y.

The John Denver episode is lovely, but not like the Belafonte episode. Even if they don't put out all the Muppet episodes- and I wish they would- I would at least like a collection of teh John Denver Episodes. This is the one with Grandma's Featherbed and Inch By Inch. It also has a rendition of the Happy Wanderer done by Muppets that I adore."
Truly deserving of this title!
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 11/13/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This set truly deserves this title. The segment where Harry Belafonte sings "Turn the World Around" with all the Muppets- including the grumpy old men(!) singing along has to be the greatest moment in Muppet history! I think most Muppet fans will agree. The John Denver segment has it's moments too, and while the Linda Ronstadt segment is not up to the other two, there is really no such thing as a completely bad Muppet Show.


It would be nice if the Alice Cooper episode, with the stuffy eagle having a fit over the freakish one, and the Milton Berle episode, where the heckling old men go toe to toe with Uncle Miltie, would also see the light of day.

The genius of the Muppets and Jim Henson was their ability to appeal to both kids and adults at the same time, unlike much of the Sid and Marty Kroft stuff and the New Zoo Revue and their descendant Barney who will make anyone over three years old run to the Pepto-Bismol! This DVD is a fine example of what I mean."
