Page 6 of 6

"Don't condescend… one of the fallacies is the conviction… that it's a world where everything is rosy and sunny and the only things that are appropriate are sweet and lovely. For myself, I love things that are very gentle and very tender and full of awe and friendship… but clearly, childhood can be a very hard place to be and a very cruel place at time, and I don't see any reason to try and pretend that isn't the truth."
Dennis Lee, Lyricist for over 300 songs on Fraggle Rock, including the theme.

When asked the difference between writing for Flight of the Conchords and The Muppets, McKenzie said, "Less sex jokes." McKenzie's "Life's a Happy Song" has already been released. It sounds a little over-cheery, but it's hard to judge without the visuals to put its tone in perspective.

Either Muppetational or Muppetation-anathema or maybe something in between — really hard to tell:
But we hope it's great.
