I Loved This....
24 October 2004 | by onefabbyallySee all my reviews

This was aired in the U.K around 1996/97, i cant remember but i thought it was amazing!!!

I had never really been into The Muppets before but this just blew me away!!! The parts i remember most were parts like Whoopi Goldberg teaching the band to sing No Woman No Cry, Really slowly but they kept speeding up!!,

i was in stitches with this!, Also who could forget Spamela Hamderson!!!!

When this finished airing its first season I remember waiting a whole year for it to come back on BBc1 but it never returned,

i can only say how sad it is that this never succeeded with the publics interest.

Live on The Muppets Tonight.
