Witty office comedy is fun but can get risqué.

The Muppets was not for kids

i think the muppets was a amazing show but it was not for kids its rated TVPG and is for an older aduience it has lots of Sexual innuendo mild swearing like hell and just deals with more Adult oriented stuff the original Muppet Show was for Adults jim henson did not want to be seen as a kids performer because of Sesame Street and wanted to prove puppets could be for Adults but it still had to be made so the whole family could watch and the new muppets show was also for Adults but it was more mature this time so unlike the original show which was made so the whole family could watch it this new ones just for an older aduience with that being said i dont recommend it for anyone under the age of 13

Such a waste, but give credit for what they tried to do. I remember being so hyped back then. The typical Muppet stuff updated to some kind of modern tonight show, but I'm not into American variety shows anyway.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
