Of Muppets & Men: The Making of the Muppet Show

I’m a bit obsessed with The Muppets, and with Jim Henson. The eclectic, supportive, familial slightly innocent good-natured chaos reminds me a lot of the crowd I used to hang out with growing up, and Henson’s inventive, unique take on the world (coupled with his incredible synergy with the ultra-genius of Frank Oz) makes it nearly impossible for me to NOT watch interview/documentary footage once I know it exists. This 1981 doco, shot around the filming of Season 5 of The Muppet Show, gives a delightful peek behind the curtain as well as nostalgia for having seen this as a kid but been interested in it for entirely different reasons.
