Disney+ Got Things Re-Started

On The Most Sensational, Inspirational.

This Is My Review

Of

Muppets Now

On the corner is a hair salon that has been there ever since I can remember. When we would go get our hair cut at Norma’s, after my sister and I were through trying to have our hair straightened, we were sent to the waiting area to watch tv and play with the GI Joes while my Mom had her hair done and talked to Norma. It was probably the only half hour of peace my mom got back then. The tv in the waiting room was tiny, but the most wonderful show would be playing while we were waiting for my Mom. The song at the beginning was magical, and all of these wonderful creatures came out from the sides of the stage, singing and dancing. From the moment I first met them on that tiny tv in that little hair salon on the corner, the muppets felt like friends that were just like me, only they were on tv and I was in real life.

When I first heard that Disney+ was reinventing The Muppet Show again with #MuppetsNow , my initial reaction was not wonderful. I still do not know how I feel about The Muppets Tonight. Some parts of it did not sit well with me, in part because I think that it strayed from the heart of who and what Muppets are and tried to fit into nighttime programming. I said to myself though, keep an open mind and give it a shot. Besides, what else is there in this covid time we are in ? My entertainment consists of Ken Davenport webcasts when I remember to catch them live, and commenting on articles on LinkdIn. By the way, If you haven’t done it, try it, it really is a blast. I do think you have to have an interest in business and management to find the fun in it, which I do. If that is you, try it – LinkdIn is an intellect’s playground. Hmm, I think I just called myself an intellect. It is 2020. It’s cool.

Getting back to The Muppets, after a long day of watching #CristinellaBella tweet at a lot of politicians while I made some attempts to record myself singing via Smule, I finally sat down to watch what producers Sabrina Wind, Andrew Williams and Bill Baretta brought back of my Muppet friends. For a half an hour, I totally forgot that we are in a pandemic. I forgot the word pandemic. I forgot that it hurts when I sing. Everything not great didn’t matter. I was 10 again, and lying on my belly in front of the tiny tv at Norma’s watching The Muppet Show for the very first time. I was fully engaged. Bravo.

Seeing Sam the Eagle and The Swedish Chef in their own vignettes was pure joy. The cooking piece was exactly as I imagine Julia Child would be with The Swedish Chef. RuPaul tied everything together for me, in that his presence gave nod to the original shows format and sense of humanity. In the original seasons, Muppets were able to talk about subjects that were taboo and not easily digested. When RuPaul told Kermit to basically chill as their interview was getting interrupted – that is a lesson all of America needs. We are a country that lives to work, where others countries work to live. The Muppets brought this to light for me tonight in the most subltle, artistic of ways, and their gentle nuance is inspiring.

Jim Henson, you live on. In our hearts, in our minds, in the lives you touch in subtle ways through the art of your Muppets. Thank you for the rainbow connection that has been forged for lovers, dreamers and me.
