In the 105th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave have what turns out to be a long conversation about one of their favorite entertainment troops -- The Muppets!
First, the breaking news of 2023 packages... Genie+ changes and why it might be a good thing... and the official ways you can experience Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind.
Then, on the week anniversary of Muppet*Vision 3D (1991)and Jim Henson's death (1990), Dave goes over the relationship between Disney and The Henson Co, including all the things that almost were, but were canceled (Gonzo's restaurant! The Muppet ride! Disneyland becoming Muppetland??), and then Jenn and Dave talk about their childhood and how the Muppets played into their growing up.
Along the way, they have discussions on Fraggle Rock, Muppet Babies, and all 8 of the Muppet theatrical films, with a ranking of their top 6.
If you are a fan of the Muppets, you will want to hear this one - especially with some familiar music played here and there, you may sing along too.
