I recently saw the new Muppet Movie that came out last year. For those of you who don’t remember (or didn’t watch) there used to be a television show called The Muppet Show back when I was a kid in the 1970’s.
The Muppet Show was like a grownup version of Sesame Street. The premise was this group of muppets had to put on a show each night and this show was always teetering on the edge of certain disaster. Acts were always going wrong — like the turkey jumping out of the Chef’s cooking pot and chasing the Chef around with the knife or a muppet accidentally blowing himself up.By Michele Pariza Wacek (Michele PW)
