I usually prefer when kids are interacting with the Muppets anyway . . . but, usually those 70s-era segments, where the kids feel more genuine and are clearly having a blast with the Muppets . . . in the 90s, and even into the 2000s, a lot of the kids felt so robotic and lost, like they had no idea what they were doing there (well, except for that Antonio kid who chatted with Papa Bear a couple of times).
