    10 Muppets Haunted Mansion

    The Muppets are kind of back and so are we! We walk through the Disney+ Halloween special, which features Gonzo and Pepe traversing through an homage to Disney World’s Haunted Mansion ride. Join us to hear about the good (lots of music!), the bad (not a lot of plot), and the weird (goats?)

    570 Why Can't All Movies Be Muppet Movies?

    Look, we love the Muppets. But the franchise has been very quiet lately. It’s time to get Muppet movies back on the big screen! And so in this episode, all our panelists pitch new Muppet movies we’d like to see. And along the way they do a bunch of Muppet voices, too, because of course they do.

    9 Muppets Most Wanted

    Muppets Most Wanted is it: the most recent Muppets movie, with no theatrical releases currently in the works. Will this be the last Muppets movie ever? Almost certainly not. But for a momentary finale, it’s pretty good!

    8 The Muppets

    We’ve made it through the murkiest period in Muppets movie history and arrived at the wonderful other side: the 2011 sequel/reboot The Muppets. At once a return to classic Muppets form and a fresh approach for the modern age, this movie brought our favorite puppets back into people’s hearts and screens. Between the cast, music, and jokes, there is so much to love about the (so far) penultimate Muppets movie.

    7 The Muppets' Wizard of Oz

    There are good Muppet movies, there are bad Muppet movies, and then there’s The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz. This fever dream of a TV movie is full of inappropriate humor, terrible CGI, and truly baffling decisions. Join us in dissecting the strangeness, won’t you?

    6 The Muppet Christmas Carol

    For December we jump back to The Muppet’s first adaptation of a classic story and first movie produced after Jim Henson’s death, The Muppet Christmas Carol. This movie has everything: Gonzo playing Charles Dickens, genuine tear-jerker scenes, comedic rats, tiny frog children, and the most disturbing Muppet to grace our screens thus far.

    5 Muppets From Space

    Muppets From Space sure is a movie that exists! We do our best to pull out the charming moments from what’s often considered the worst Muppet movie, and examine the mysterious writing conflicts that may explain how it got that way.

    3 The Muppets Take Manhattan

    After the sophomore slump of The Great Muppet Caper, the Muppets are back firing on all cylinders for The Muppets Take Manhattan. The gang becomes starving artists, there’s an entire scene in Sardi’s, and Quinn gives a queer reading of Fozzie Bear.

    266 It's Impossible Being Green

    The premiere of ABC’s new comedy “The Muppets” prompts us to look at the entirety of the Muppet universe and lore, from TV to movies to viral videos. We also ponder what’s wrong with the new ABC series, posit some theories about how Kermit went from “Sesame Street” to “The Muppet Show,” and participate in an impromptu Muppet draft. Don’t felt, don’t tell.
