It’s hard to believe four decades have passed since Jim Henson’s lovable creations first graced the small screen, […]
The Muppets are a source of some of the most pure joy in my life, as is the case for a lot of people. They're fun, they're silly, they're a bit shady at times. There's the magical moment as you...
