This was a very interesting book. It was a collection of essays on how the influence of decades before helped evolve the iconic characters displayed on Jim Henson's Muppets. From watching the show when I was a little girl, I had no idea the impact that society had on creating such characters. Through reading the essays, it is easy to see and point out the creativity of Henson's Muppets in relation to past years. I feel like I have been Kermit "culturized" and will never watch a re-run of the Muppets the same!

A missed opportunity; authors are straining to be academic when there are dozens of contributors who could have offered cutting-edge insights with academic resonance. More like a collection of essays by grad students then the book it should have been.
