Tales from Muppetland: The Muppet Musicians of Bremen

I saw this when I was – what? eight? It had a big impact on me. I found the music haunting, the story gripping and the villians terrifying. Been looking for it for years as I don’t think it ever showed a second time.

Bremen, Germany is very proud of this old fairy tale. The Muppet version takes place in Bremen, Louisiana (I am trying to figure out if this is a real place – anyone?) and is filled with New Orleans style jazz. Jim Henson was from neighboring Mississippi and I have a feeling this project must have been dear to his heart.
