Too Good To Last...
16 May 2015 | by bespin0079See all my reviews

I only came across this show today and was able binge the three completed episodes plus one unfinished one. It's real shame that LITTLE MUPPET MONSTERS didn't last very long, it was pretty entertaining and Molly was pretty cute. It was also a nice touch that they attempted to expand Muppet animation beyond MUPPET BABIES with such segments as KERMIT THE FROG: PRIVATE EYE and PIGS IN SPACE, THE ANIMATED SERIES. On that same subject, there were also live skits involving Fozzie and Gonzo, the latter of which used MB- style usage of stock footage.

The tone is reminiscent of SESAME STREET, only appealing more to general audiences rather than toddlers. The humor is what you'd expect from a Muppets program, so you really can't go wrong in that department.

Five stars. Check it out!
