Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Langridge captures the zany energy of the beloved Muppet Show, which aired on television from 1976 and 1981, in this collection. All the usual suspects play a role, including Kermit, Miss Piggy, Scooter, Beaker, Fozzie Bear, the members of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, and, providing curmudgeonly commentary, Statler and Waldorf. The volume is structured like one of the episodes of the show—there is a main plot and a few subplots, all of which are interrupted by “skits” such as “Pigs in Space,” “Long Distance Toast Hurling,” and musical numbers. The central story revolves around a hunt for treasure possibly hidden in the theater by Peg-Leg Wilson, a performer from an earlier era. Skulking around the edges are a Kermit imitator and some devious rats. Langridge's bright, lively illustrations capture the feel and humor of the show. The intended younger audience will find something to giggle about on most pages, but like all of the best Henson productions, there are gags and comments aimed at adults. Those jokes, combined with a hint of nostalgia, may give those who grew up with the Muppets the first time around the most pleasure from the volume. Ages 9–12 (Feb.)
Children's Literature - Michael Jung
Those who remember Jim Henson's T.V. program The Muppet Show probably recall a bizarre variety show full of hyperactive puppets, sight gags, and nonstop parodies that only hinted at a coherent plot. Now The Muppet Show is back in BOOM! Studios' The Muppet Show Comic Book: The Treasure of Peg Leg Wilson—and very little has changed. Kermit the Frog and company are still struggling to deliver an entertaining show for their audience, even as the backstage antics threaten to ruin everything. This time, Rizzo the Rat and his rodent pals are tearing up the entire Muppet Theater after they stumble across an old map hinting that a fabulous treasure could be hidden somewhere in the building. Meanwhile drummer Animal gets kicked out of his band after the brain-boosting treatment he receives from Professor Honeydew to build up his I.Q. destroys his drum beat. Add a Kermit the Frog impersonator/con man into the mix and you have the recipe for a first-rate comedy—or a complete mess. It really all depends on the reader's point of view and his or her ability to appreciate a graphic novel that, much like the television show, places spectacle over plot. Those who can will find this graphic novel an entertaining farce that never lets up and switches from subplot to subplot so fast a reader may have to struggle to keep up. Reviewer: Michael Jung
