The Muppets

[Digital Gonzo 2013]

This podcast is several things at once. First and foremost it’s a review of the 2011 film; The Muppets. Although I have to be honest and say that what I tend to do on Gonzo goes somewhat beyond the term ‘review’. The search is now on for a word to accurately describe just what that is. 

Secondly it’s a look back on Muppet history, The Muppet show and their precious six theatrical movies. Third it’s a musical journey closer to one of the Sound of Gonzo episodes. I found during the edit that the songs were so intrinsically linked with the tone and performance that to render them faithfully was the only way to match the emotional flow of the film. I thoroughly recommend buying the soundtrack, it’s been on repeat in our house since I picked mine up.

[Digital Gonzo 2011]

This is an extensive Gonzo review of two versions of the same classic tale by Charles Dickens:

1. The Muppets Christmas Carol [Disney, 1993]

2. A Christmas Carol [Disney, 2009]

We take you back to the winter-swept streets of London in 1843 as we take a close look at the story of Ebeneezer Scrooge and his transformation from mean-spirited miser to warm-hearted philanthropist literally overnight.

And all it took was a life-changing series of ghostly visitations upon one very long Christmas Eve.

Fantastic music from composers Miles Goodman, Paul Williams and Alan Silvestri punctuate this review, along with some choice snippets of dialogue and of course those singing Muppets.
