My friends from across the hall went to Sam's today and bought the Muppets on DVD, so we are sitting here watching the Muppet Show hosting Steve Martin. It's like a flashback to childhood! The Muppets is such a classic show. I remember loving Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzy, and all the other Muppets characters. When we went to Disney World, we saw the production they put on, and my dad always sang along with the music. He's a BIG Muppets fan. We went to see the Muppets movie over Thanksgiving break, and he sang all the songs for the rest of the break. When I came back to college after Thanksgiving, I was still singing the Muppets songs because he drilled the lyrics from the movie so deeply into my head. Sitting here watching the Muppets reminds me of my dad so much. And seeing Steve Martin looking so young is pretty great! Even as a younger actor, he was still hilarious.
So, here's to the Muppets! Have a fantastic week, everyone.
