Good for kids, now I want a doc on the early years
10 November 2019 | by GMGoodwrenchGirlSee all my reviews

No kids, so haven't seen the show since I watched it as a kid. The special was good for kids, but I had no idea who most of the non-OG Muppets were. I was also wondering...why so MANY? I DO want to see them make a documentary on the early years of the show, and definitely want them to do a whole movie on.Jim Henson''s whole life. .

If I were still a kid, I would have given it 10 stars.
