Mana mana

Speaking of the Muppets, my family (including my parents), caught the matinée on the weekend. What a great walk down memory lane. I had forgotten how much I loved the Muppet Show. The values that were taught, the zany songs, the funny sketches and the vaudeville of it all.

3 of my favourite muppets are:

  • Kermit the Frog – of course, most people’s beloved frog. “It is not easy being green.” He was always sensible. He knew the right thing to do, had high moral standards.
  • The Swedish Chef – I always knew his gibberish was not real Swedish, but it was fun to have
  • something from my family’s culture up there on the TV. I used to hope each week that he would make an appearance, but he was not so popular.
  • Animal – he became my favourite once I hit high school. That is the time of life when all you want to do is party, answer questions with an emphatic nod and turn up the music!
