Most people, having just finished a Muppet documentary, would be unlikely to immediately start another – but you know how this works by now. This one, produced after Henson’s death, was a bit more fo a general retrospective – focussing primarily on Muppets but touching proportionately on pre-Muppets, on the films, and the myriad other projects. What was remarkable though was the amount of footage from the 1981 documentary I’d just watched which turned up in this one. Like, srsly – there were 120 episodes of The Muppet Show, and you’ve picked the same highlights? But, it didn’t even matter. Bliss.
