Post TV columnist Lisa de Moraes seems to think that Quentin Tarantino and the Muppets won’t mix well. Maybe she never saw The Muppet Show. That program from the late 70’s and early 80’s featured some pretty strange celebrities interacting with the Muppets, with very funny and occasionally bizarre results. Quentin would have fit right in.
Twenty years later, the problem with this production, a Muppet version of The Wizard of Oz, is that the characters have been purchased by the Disney corporation, which is producing the movie. These days Disney tends to suck all the fun out of almost anything they do and I’m sure they will try to do the same thing with the Muppets. Oh, and it will be shown on ABC. Maybe it would be better to stick with the DVDs of the old show.
