Return to Oz

by

Frank Oz, the very same man behind the pig (and the frog and the …) in all things Muppets, was the jerk behind the counter in The Blues Brothers, returning John Belushi’s belongings to him (not least of which was a used condom) as he left prison. Talk about opposite ends of the MPAA-ratings spectrum.

Now you can own season two of The Muppet Show (aired all the way back in ’76) on DVD, starring guest hosts like Oz-buddy Steve Martin, Peter Sellers, and Elton John!

And if star-watching is your thing, you’ll find no shortage of them in the classic Blues Brothers, which aside from showcasing a range of musical icons, features another director cameo: Steven Spielberg.
