What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Muppets from Space is classic Muppet fare with jokes to keep the parents happy and a fun story for kids, with the valuable theme of an outcast trying to find his place in the world. There are some mildly suspenseful moments and lots of comic action sequences in which some of the beloved Muppet creatures, particularly Gonzo, are in danger -- lightning hits, a kidnapping, pratfalls, a Miss Piggy "punch-out" -- all exaggerated and meant to be funny rather than scary.
- Families can talk about why the Muppets are so popular. What do kids like about them? How about parents?
- Have you ever flet like an outcast fro being different, the way Gonzo does?
- How do you think Muppets from Space compares with other Muppet movies?
