When I was a kid, there were two puppet-themed entertainment options that were a huge part of my TV watching repertoire. The first was, of course, Fraggle Rock - we had most of the episodes on tape, since it was on during nap time. I watched them over and over again. So, when the DVDs came out last year, I was SO excited to have access to them again (my VCR has long since stopped working, and what's the point of getting a new one?).
The second puppet-related thing was The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppets Take Mahattan. They were both the kind of movie that I could watch over and over again, particularly if I was home sick from school. The adventures of Kermit and his gang never failed to entertain. So, when I heard they were making a new Muppet movie, I was pretty darn excited. Then I heard it was going to involve an actor I really like, and one of the guys from Flight of the Concords. Where do I sign-up? All this to say that Andy and I went to see the movie today. It did not disappoint, not one bit. I expected to like it because of the nostalgia factor, but Andy and I decided it was actually good on it's own merits. Yay! Here's the trailer for everyone to enjoy:
*Sigh* I still really love the Muppets. More clips available here on YouTube if you want to check it out.
Calvin was happy to see us when we got home. He's been so spoiled the past 5 days - his people have been here ALL the time.
