Storyline

Cinderella lives with her wicked stepmother (as everyone who ever read the fairy tale knows), but what part of the story is never told is how Cinderella's fairy godmother had help from monsters, a prince pretending to be a gardener, and none other than Kermit the Frog. Written by Max Vaughn

A beautiful rendition of the classic fairy tale!
16 March 2002 | by clob_laneSee all my reviews

CINDERELLA is beautifully retold in this enchanting piece of entertainment: HEY CINDERELLA! I have no doubts this has to be one of Jim Henson's best specials ever. LABYRINTH (1986) was also a sensation. Belinda Montgomery is especially joyful as the youthful Cinderella. I really loved the fairy godmother. Kermit, Splurge and the rest of the cast were equally adorable. The Muppets are one of the key things in making a good rendition of a fairy tale e.g. THE FROG PRINCE starring Kermit the Frog.
