When I was a kid, it was such a treat when The Muppet Show was on because my mom let us stay up a little later just to watch the show. I have such fond memories of the series, and later on, of the movies. It was one of those shows that both kids and adults can enjoy because there’s something for everyone. Now that I’m an adult and have my own kid, I can’t wait to watch The Muppet Show with Anya. I think she’s definitely too young to understand the plots of the sketches, but she’ll enjoy the puppets.
