The Muppet Show #1
So this book really caught the flavor of the show. The jokes were as I remembered them and I could almost here the exasperation in Kermit's voice when he threw his arms up in the air.
The only real miss is that the featured guests are kind of non existent... this is explained very well in the book and makes sense. I understand that it would be a chore to get the licensing right, but there should still be like George Clooney or Marilyn Manson or someone to give it a little bit of variety, other wise it really is fine.
The art has a charming quality to it, even if a few of the designs (most noticeably Kermit and Gonzo) are a little off.
This is a book with all the right touches. It is nostalgic but not wallowing in the past and best of all it is a kid's title that doesn't talk down to them. Probably the greatest testament to this book was my daughter's hour long festival last night of Muppet Shows on youtube. She wanted to see them and watched the John Cleese and Carol Burnett episodes. I have a strange child. Imagine that.
