Muppet Fest – BAMcinématek series Puppets on Film

The Muppets are making a comeback with the November 23, 2011 release of  the Disney ‘s “The Muppets” movie but you can introduce your kids to Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog and the rest of the Muppet gang of our youth. The BAMcinematek is running a series devoted to Puppets on Film. The Muppet Movie from 1976 and Muppet Treasure Island will be featured as part of the series.  My favorite Muppet is Miss Piggy for all her sass and outrageous comments. Who is your favorite Muppet?
