Opening, of course, with the famous title sequence from The Muppet Show, this program features back to back, (off the) wall to wall top-shelf musical numbers.
But, as we know, things on The Muppet Show don’t always go according to plan; many musical numbers go awry at the hands of our furry pals who really only ever try to do the right thing.
With so much material to choose from, this program provides many side-splitting moments including Gonzo’s fantastic version of the Village People’s ‘Macho Man’ (surrounded by a chorus of chickens), and Linda Ronstadt singing ‘Blue Bayou’ with backup by frogs and hillbillies. And of course the action is propelled by Statler and Waldorf heckling from the balcony with some riotous gags.
All we can say is “bring on the da bear!”
