Did You Know?

Goofs

When Rizzo comes in and whispers something to Kermit during "The Elves and the Shoemaker", it is obviously not Rizzo's voice. This is because Steve Whitmire was already performing Kermit in this scene. The Muppets typically use this method of substitution, then dub in the correct voice later, but it appears this instance was overlooked. The voice is almost certainly that of Dave Goelz. See more »

One of the funniest Muppet outings
4 August 2005 | by heather-watsonSee all my reviews

Though most people consider The Muppets for kids, when I discovered this gem at the ripe age of 21 while working at summer camp I just couldn't get enough. Though all the stories are familiar, the usual Muppet hilarity and musicality shine through each and every segment. All of your favorites are showcased with Kermit, Piggy, Gonzo and Fozzie carrying you through some of the best fairy tales of all time.

Considering that this great Muppet extravaganza is out of print, if you ever see it laying about, pick it up! It will be a well used 90 minutes of time. If anything, when the tape is over you will want to immediately rewind it and watch it all over again!
