I never grew up with the muppets. I did see the occasional movie now and then. ‘A Muppet Christmas Carrol’ is one of those movies that never gets old. I did, however, grow up with Sesame Street. The sketches with Kermit had always been among my favourites. So, when I heard there was a new Muppets movie in the works, I got excited. Especially when I learned that it would be written by Jason Segel (HIMYM), who had proven in ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ that he was a big fan of puppets.
