Do you remember The Muppet Show? This is what I asked my 29 year old sister a few weeks ago and she said, "not really". What a shame that she doesn't but I'm 35 and remember it well!
About a month ago I reserved, through inter-library loan, The Best of the Muppet Show with Carol Burnett, Steve Martin, and Gilda Radner. The kids and I had sooo much fun watching this DVD. We're still singing the songs and acting out the skits a month later!
The Muppet Show is good clean silly humour which is great for families. I love the music and am still facinated at how life-like the muppets can be. We all have fun watching it. I don't get the chance to watch much tv, and really have no interest, but this show has me laughing out loud and is well worth it!
I've just reserved, again through inter-library loan, Season 1 of The Muppet Show. Isn't the library great! I'm looking forward to sharing the laughs and silliness with our kids. Anything that brings us together like that is priceless :)
Look at the site I found for fans of the show - Muppet Central. Make sure to check-out the Muppet Wild! site as well which is dedicated to all things Muppets!
I'm also looking forward to visiting The Jim Henson Legacy display at The University of Maryland where he (along with my husband) graduated from.
