I love this show! When the end of every episode arrived, I always found myself thinking, "It's over already?!?!" There are so many wonderful moments: the Mahna Mahna sketch in the Juliet Prowse episode (not to mention her beautiful dance); Ruth Buzzi's singing of "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" to Sweetums; the Whatnot who sings "I Feel Pretty" in Charles Aznavour's episode; the many wonderful moments with Peter Ustinov; Bruce Forsyth's encounter with a Gawky Bird as he sings "All I Need Is the Girl"; Sandy Duncan's hilarious rendition of "Nice Girl Like Me"; Ben Vereen's singing of "Mr. Cellophane"; and the many fabulous moments with Phyllis Diller, Vincent Price and Ethel Merman. The "At the Dance" sketches, Swedish Chef moments, Wayne and Wanda debacles, and wonderful songs sung by the Gogolala Jubilee Jugband were also incredibly funny and entertaining. I could go on, but this comment is probably too long already. Watch the shows for yourself and I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I did.

Still wonderful after all these years! The bonus "pop up" trivia and fun facts are fun to watch, too. It's interesting to watch the evolution of some of the characters who develop more depth as the episodes progress. Great for old fans and kids who are learning to appreciate the characters for the first time.

I loved the Muppet Show as a kid. The first episode with Juliet Prowse has one of the best skits ever: Mahna Mahna. I loved this as a kid and my kids today (3 and 5) love this skit.
