I liked it. I kinda wish they interviewed more puppeteers besides Matt, Eric, Marty, Pam and Carmen. They even interviewed Fran Brill, but she only got one clip in the final cut. My favorite part was learning that Matt sings I Don't Want to Live on the Moon to his kids as a lullaby.

It was nice to see Fran in this.

So... did it have any rare clips (or at least clips that are obviously from about before the end of the 1990s that you don’t recognize)? Any of the rare segments that have been given screenshots on Muppet Wiki this past year that otherwise are unavailable?

It was kinda lame. The picture isn't very clear at my house.

Well . . . I only caught like . . . 8-10 minutes of it, so I can't really say much about it, other than to see Roscoe Orman and Bob McGrath in HD (since I've only recently finally gotten an HDMI cable for my TV) felt like seeing them in person, face-to-face, all over again.
