Recently, I caught a rerun of ‘The Muppets Most Wanted’ (or at least a chunk of one) on cable, and I have to say that seeing Danny Trejo singing and dancing was an experience that I didn’t know I needed.  Still, it doesn’t quite beat the experience I had a million years ago when I saw “The Muppet Movie” in the drive-in, with Charles Grodin and the Frog Legs jingle and Kermit on a bicycle, leading to today’s not-a-puppet query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds Faithful Spoilerites that Dead Tom’s always been dead, that’s why we call him Dead Tom, asking: Which big screen felt-and-string outing is your Favorite Muppet Flick?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Daniel Langsdale on

    “Bear left.” “Right frog.”

    “‘Motorcycle cop’ is a sweet nothing?”

    The Muppet Movie, all the way

  2. My favorite Muppets movie isn’t really a movie, it’s their TV Christmas special, “A Muppet Family Christmas.” It’s both my favorite Muppets thing and my only must-watch special each holiday season.

    If I have to pick a theatrical release, though, I kind of really liked Muppets From Space.
