Series 2 of The Muppet Show also brought together a congregation of impressive guest stars, with Julie Andrews, Elton John, Peter Sellers and Steve Martin among the names joining in the maniacal fun. And with a healthy combination of sketches and big musical numbers, its easy to understand why The Muppet Show remains one of the finest childrens television programmes of all time.
Whats also pleasing is how well its held up. While not all of the The Muppet Show is timeless, theres nonetheless a real evergreen feel to much of the material here. And with hours of entertainment that, genuinely, the entire family can enjoy, this is a box set with immense rewatch potential. Brilliant. --Simon Brew
Statler and Waldorf might have heckled from their spot in the balcony box, but THE MUPPET SHOW remains one of TV's most enjoyable shows for the whole family. With wacky humour appealing to kids and parents alike, this variety series featured all the favourites in Jim Henson's gang: Kermit, Miss Piggy, Animal, Rowlf, Fozzie, Rizzo, Gonzo, and more. Beaker meeps, the Pigs in Space try to save the universe, and Kermit just tries to keep the show from falling apart. With musical numbers, sketches, backstage insight, and less-than-helpful cooking tips from the Swedish Chef, life at THE MUPPET SHOW is never boring. In the second season, the beloved Muppets are joined by celebrity guests including Steve Martin, Peter Sellers, Bob Hope, Julie Andrews, and Elton John. This four-volume set includes all 24 episodes of the Emmy-winning second season, plus special features such as 'Weezer & the Muppets' and THE MUPPET VALENTINE SPECIAL starring Mia Farrow.
