    1. I'd be surprised if all the Muppets didn't do good. Parents like a good movie to take the kiddos too, and they're not always so easy to find. :)

  18. I know my Grandson would be very interested in this. Most any Disney show interests him.

  19. I wish they'd bring Fraggle Rock back though. Same company, but for some reason I was more drawn to them.

    1. My husband loved The Muppets and Fraggle Rock!! In fact, we have a Fraggle Rock DVD he bought our son when he was too little to enjoy it, and I forgot all about it. I bet he's the perfect age now. Headed to the living room to find the DVD. :)

  20. No, sadly we will not be going to this one. I hated the last one they did. I couldn't wait to leave the theater. My niece actually did walk out when she went lol. I'll keep my fingers crossed this one is much better than the last for those who do chose to go see it :)

    1. I didn't see the last one, I'm sorry to hear you didn't like it. :( I think I'll go to this one, it'll be my first Muppets show in the theater. Cross your fingers for me that it's a goodie. :)
