The Muppets – Time In A Bottle

Performed by Jim Henson in Episode 207 of the Muppet Show…while not only being a wonderful tribute to the music of Jim Croce…it’s something I think that all of us that visit the Retroist site can understand.

A big tip of the hat to ksatyr for uploading this over on YouTube.

  1. A masterful performance of puppetry and music. I was always a little sad at this bit, partially because it’s a rather melancholy tune, and partially because I felt sorry for the scientist for having to return to his previous state of oldness.
