I am unapologetic about my love for the Muppets. As kids, Jamie and I used to sit with our noses pressed up against the screen as we watched “Sing Along Dance Along Do Along,” which starred Rowlf the dog. Even after the tape had ended, we would remain there, hoping we could join all the cool kids in the show that got to dance and sing with Rowlf. Maybe it is that early exposure that gives me a wistful nostalgic feeling whenever I see Kermit and the gang. I may have teared up when seeing the Muppets on the big screen when the latest movie came to theaters (I am allowed a public tear every now and then unlike Jamie who is prone to spontaneous weeping at the movies. Compared to her, I sometimes feel robotic…but not in the creepy stalker Jinx from the movie Space Camp sense). I cannot wait for the next movie. Muppets + Ricky Gervais + Tina Fey = absolute perfection.
Any other Muppet fans out there? They don’t make ’em like they used to, huh?
