I’m James Faraci The Last Of The Americans and The views I’m about to express are that of my own and some of yours. What else can I say but… The Muppets! (Cut to clips of The Muppets throughout the years as “The Muppet Show” theme song plays in the background and James does a voiceover.)
Mixing old school Marionette style movement with hand puppetry Jim Henson who we lost far too early in 1990 gave us a legacy that stands the test of time! While TV was the Muppets was bread & butter for me they shined when they had the time to expand on the voodoo they do so well in the movies.(Cut to James physically)
So for Muppet Wish Day I am going to go through ALL the Muppet movies in one shot! (Cut to clips of The movies starring The Muppets as James does a voiceover.)
Now there are some ground rules I need to lay down. One, The movies have to be about The Muppets and they have to be made for the big screen! No made for TV movies or specials and Kermit’s Swamp Years are not going to be reviewed. Two, None of the other Jim Henson based productions that were made for the cinema are not going to be reviewed. So movies like “Follow That Bird”, “The Dark Crystal”, “Labyrinth” and the Live Action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies from the 1990’s are going to be passed over and finally I will try to keep the Spoilers to the barest minimum I can for the few of you who have not seen. (Cut to James physically)
So let’s start off with our first foray for Kermit and the gang.
