Did You Know?

Goofs

When Rizzo comes in and whispers something to Kermit during "The Elves and the Shoemaker", it is obviously not Rizzo's voice. This is because Steve Whitmire was already performing Kermit in this scene. The Muppets typically use this method of substitution, then dub in the correct voice later, but it appears this instance was overlooked. The voice is almost certainly that of Dave Goelz. See more »

A made for video Muppet treat!!!
3 September 2005 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

voices of Steve Whittemore, Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Bill Baretta and David Goelz.

6 stories from fables made with Muppets. It's very entertaining, not as much as Jim Henson's, but was still very fun. It has 6 songs that are all forgettable, but fun and briefly catchy. Story one is the Three Li'l Pigs with Miss Piggy, which was pretty good. Story 2 is King Midas, with Kermit, Miss Piggy and Gonzo, which was the worst. Story 3 is The Boy Who Cried Wolf with Gonzo and Kermit...which was interesting. Story 4 has Kermit, Miss Piggy and Gonzo and is Rumplestiltskin. Story 5, the Empererors New Clothes, stars Fozzie Bear, Rizzo the Rat and Robin the Frog is the best segment. Story 6 is the Shoemaker and the Elves starring Kermit and Robin. The movie is fun, if not forgettable.

my rating-B. 67 minutes long. rated G.
