    It's wonderful how so many of these people really enjoy and have great experiences with doing Muppet movies like this; I remember similar anecdotes from Mandy Patinkin saying how much he enjoyed doing EIG because he was thrilled to work with the Muppets, and that they're even better than working with other live actors.

    I can't think of anyone who has ever said they hated working with the Muppets. Even back in the early days of Sesame Street and the Muppet Show, people like Harry Belafonte, Carol Burnett, Madeline Kahn, and John Denver loved the Muppets and went on to become close friends with Jim Henson. Today, people like Tina Fey, Jane Krakowksi, Jack Black, Elizabeth Banks, Dave Grohl, Jim Gaffigan, Adam Sandler, and Sara Bareilles have lined up to work with the Muppets. And let's not forget that the Muppets had a big spot in the opening of Macy's Thanksgiving Parade as well.

    People just get naturally excited about being around the Muppets because they aren't temperamental or overly demanding like other actors can be (well except for one certain Miss P). They're just so appealing to all ages, and this interview is a good example of celebrities who speak highly of the Muppets.
