I think Muppets Haunted Mansion is a little too obvious and at the same time, too plotless to become a perennial classic, but it still delivers on what the Muppets do best - fun jokes and heart. Gonzo and Pépé must spend the night in Disney's Haunted Mansion and for the most part encounter various guest cameos and spooky movie tropes until time runs out, and while Gonzo is a great character to hang a tale on - he's so guileless and earnest - you sometimes wish it had been more of an ensemble story. still Pépé the King Prawn gets a good subplot, not to say half the screen time. The trick here is that this is essentially the kind of Halloween special the Muppet Show would have done, with a ghostly Muppet Show right in the middle, a Laugh-In ballroom scene, and Statler and Waldorf even getting the last word. That's where the special shines brightest. On a personal note, NuKermit still doesn't sound like Kermit to me. On a universal note, RIP Ed Asner - this appears to be his last role.
