Gonzo, Fozzie, Kermit, Ms. Piggy

Yes, we are watching "The Muppet Show" Season One in its completion. I claimed to buy Seasons One, Two and Three for the children, but the truth is, I really wanted to see these shows again.

I remember LOVING these shows as a child, and I wanted to see if the shows held up decades years later.

Most of the show makes me smile. The beginning of the show with Gonzo trying to bang the gong or get his trumpet to finally work.

Or the old guys sitting in the balcony constantly ripping on the show.

But, the part that always makes me laugh aloud is the Swedish Chef.

Yeah, I have a special place in my heart for Beaker, but I slightly prefer the Swedish Chef since he makes all of us laugh out loud. Plus, they did a tennis reference in the bit I included here, so that automatically makes it my favorite.

Yes, I can be bought that cheaply.

I LOVE the Muppets! They are so great! I get the shows from Netflix and don't even have any kids. :) They always make me smile. I like Rolf the dog (I have no idea how to spell his name)

Imagine telling someone, twenty years ago, that one day they would be able to sit in front of a TV-like screen and pull up snippets of their favorite shows...on demand.

Incredible. We are truly adaptable. New technology is absorbed and becomes the norm with very little reflection on how miraculous it is.
