The Muppets Take Manhattan
I was credited as Special Consultant and had a great time hanging on the set with director Frank Oz. Muppet Maniacs can read my interview about the mov- ie on the website “Tough Pigs”, as well as some discussion of the Misch-script- ed Jim Henson pilot “Inner Tube”.
Here’s a fun scene from the movie where Ker- mit, suffering from am- nesia, becomes a Mad Man (er, Frog). Follow- ing that, Kermit joins his buddies for lunch: “I’ll pick up the bill, Phil.” “Would you like something from the grill, Jill?” “No – meat makes me ill, Gil.”
(All those Hmmms? Ribbing Jim Henson, who did that both as Kermit and in real life.)
