Editorial Reviews

Elton John: The pop superstar takes center stage with outrageous costumes and some of his greatest hits, including "Crocodile Rock" and "Don't Go Breaking My Heart." Julie Andrews: The beloved musical star yodels the tale of a lonely goat herd, serenades Kermit, and whistles a happy tune in the company of giant monsters. Gene Kelly: The legendary musical-comedy star gives Kermit a dance lesson, performs a romantic duet with Miss Piggy, and sings a medley of tunes from his classic movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is truly the Best of the Muppet Show! August 2, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This video was released in a set of videos over a year ago. I purchased the set which includes twelve videos. This video is one of my son's favorites. It contains Elton John, Julie Andrews and Gene Kelly in 3 Full-Length Shows!
Elton John takes center stage with outrageous costumes and performs his greatest hits, including "Crocodile Rock" and "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," as a duet with with Miss Piggy.
Julie Andrews yodels, sings "When You Were A Tadpole (and I was a fish)" to Kermit, and whisles a happy tune in the company of monsters.
Gene Kelly gives Kermit a dance lesson, performs a romantic duet with Miss Piggy and tries his hardest to avoid doing "Singing In The Rain" because he's done it too many times.
I highly recomend this video if you have a child under 5 or any age for that matter.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good content, but disappointing April 11, 2003
By D
Format:DVD
This DVD includes 3 episodes of "The Muppet Show." I have always loved the Muppets, and it is good to see this great show get DVD treatment. While the content is fun and entertaining, it is minimal. There are very little special features. While the features provide a few small laughs, they don't really have much to do with the episodes themselves. And there are only three episodes. I call that [very costly]. I don't care for "Best of" sets in the first place (I prefer Season Sets), but they could at least included more material. They could easily fit 5 to 6 episodes on one disc, especially considering the absense of a lot of bonus features.
Overall, it's an enjoyable disc but it doesn't quite satisfy me. Buy it only if you can get it for a bargain price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Muppets September 19, 2002
Format:DVD
The muppets are great! If you agree, you'll like this DVD. Each of these three episodes had great gags, and all of the key muppets of the era are humorously involved (Though Fozzie gets less attention than the others). The only thing keeping me from giving this a full five stars were a few odd unfunny skits (I don't care for the Jug Band) and a laughtrack which I felt was sometimes distracting. On the plus side, three entire episodes are included, and each has a brief introduction by Brian Henson. Though not perfect, this muppet release has some great moments. My favorites were: Sam the Eagle's editorial, Gonzo playing "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" on the bagpipes, and the always popular Pigs in Space.

5.0 out of 5 stars This one was really good December 28, 2002
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a true fan of the Muppets I was thrilled to get this tape! Every guest was great, and Julie Andrews still rules! The best episode out on tape the only thing I didn't care for was the last number, a little cheesy, but other than that wonderful! I also found I truly loved Elton John's music from this. This is one I plan to watch over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elton is wonderful! March 12, 2006
By Kariann
Format:DVD
I would have given this Muppet Show DVD a higher rating but you need to know that the Elton John episode ranks higher than five stars. My three and five year-old children adore it! They want to keep playing this first show over and over again. They know the songs and love the costumes. In the Julie Andrews episode they loved when the monsters tried to scare Julie. With Gene Kelly, I explained Gene was one of the best dancers ever, so they went along with the Muppets trying to get him to dance.

This is their absolute favorite of The Muppet Show DVDs. Buy it and enjoy it whether you have young ones in your life or not!

5.0 out of 5 stars Elton John March 1, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
the first muppet show episode i ever saw was the elton john episode, and it is well worth the price of the DVD. Though it is somewhat fused in my memory with the episode with melissa manchester, the musical acts of "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" with Ms Piggy, "Crocodile Rock" With assorted muppet crocodiles "Bennie and the Jets" with the cast and "Beyond the Yellow Brick Road" are incredible. the other acts i remember, and i apologize for any mistakes i make, include the musical number of "tumbling tumbleweeds", the flying zucchini brothers, and pigs in space
well worth the money, and worth your time, even if only for the elton john episode

5.0 out of 5 stars Go Elton! November 4, 2005
By D. Dion
Format:DVD
That's what my 4-year-old daughter says whenever he sings. My twins absolutely love this DVD and it's brought back fond memories for me as well. It has been my son's hands-down favorite video for quite some time now. As a previous reviewer said, tell the world it's for the kids and turn Elton up! Enjoy.
