    I grew up in the 1970's and '80's, at the apex of Henson's popularity, with Sesame Street and the Muppet Show, and the first Muppet movies. It is my feeling that kids today need a lot more Jim Henson-style entertainment, and a lot of the brainless entertainment that is unfortunately popular today. That was one of the reasons that Barney disgusted me so, because I feel that shows like that really insult kids' intelligence. Mine would certainly have been insulted, if I had been young enough to be in the target audience when that show came out.

    More reasons The Muppets rule!

    Kids shows these days are rubbish. Barney has to be the worst thing ever to hit the TV, it treats all children like they're idiots... What happened to the Acme atomic bomb home kit and desintegrating pistol, and to the days that a cat wanting to eat a mouse was considered normal?

    As the sister of a mentally handicapped person, I despise using the phrase 'retards' as a putdown.

    Back to topic - I showed this clip to my 14 year old son and his friends - they liked it. It also made me go look for "Furry Happy Monsters" with the Muppets and REM - good times.

    ^^^Is it any wonder that it was part of the Sesame Street generation that invented mosh-pit dancing? They were influenced by dancing Muppets!

    This thread makes me sad.

    Before you talk about "the PC squad," you might wanna look at the results of numerous studies done on effects of watching violence.

    Seeing it recorded has a stronger negative effect than seeing it live and seeing it in an animated/non-realistic films is by far the worst culprit.

    Sorry for my being a touch out of it. I did not recognise that flick from the Muppets I was familiar with.
