Who can go wrong with a Muppet Celebration?
18 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is great entertainment for anyone who has enjoyed Jim Henson's work from 1986 and earlier.

I recently came across my old Beta player and tapes. Low and behold my favorite tape laying right on top! Watching it took me back. It holds everything you can think of from Sesame Street to Fraggle Rock. Includes very early works of Jim on his old public television show.

The set up is quite like an early awards show, with intro music and presenters. This is a must see for any Henson fan. This production gets an A+ in my book. If you can get a copy, watch it!
