Roger Ebert was among the film's many admirers, as evidenced by his enthusiastic review. I had the tremendous honor of getting to interview one of my lifelong heroes, Dave Goelz (a.k.a. The Great Gonzo), about his experience working with Henson & Co. as well as the spiritual and philosophical power of The Muppets. We also discussed the upcoming Netflix series, "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance," which premieres on August 30th, and serves as a prequel to Henson's audacious 1982 fantasy, "The Dark Crystal" (Goelz performs in both).
