Spocklight: A Star Trek Podcast

Spocklight At the Movies 27: The Muppets Take Manhattan (w/ Professor Elemental & Hattie Snooks)

August 16, 2022

Together again with two returning Guests as we’re joined by Muppets Superfan, Professor Elemental, and Muppets Sceptic, Hattie Snooks, to dissect The Muppets Take Manhattan starring Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Rizzo the Rat, Gonzo and more importantly Star Trek alumni, Gates McFadden!


We outline our personal histories with The Muppets before discussing McFadden’s dual roles in front of the camera as Mr. Price’s Secretary and behind the camera as the Choreographer of the film. Plus, Liam makes his case for Miss Piggy being a Feminist icon, we discuss what appears to be a Muppets caste system, the joy of seeing a Childrens movie set in the scuzzy New York of the 80s and Hattie raises her objection to the seminal Muppet Babies dream sequence.
