The Muppet Babies test arcade classics

Jim Henson’s 1980’s cartoon series did more than splice Star Wars clips with toddler Kermit the Frog imagining himself as Luke Skywalker. In one episode the Muppet Babies got a brand new Nintendo Pretendo, which gave the writers a chance to parody video games. Kermit enters Frogger, Fozzie is thrown into Tetris, and Miss Piggy becomes a ninja. Briefly, footage of actual video games like Donkey Kong and Fantasy Zone are shown in the episode too. But nothing beats seeing Gonzo as Mario. It’s at the beginning of the first clip.
