Meet The Feebles (1989)

Meet The Feebles

By Adam Thomas

Friday September 15, 2006

Directed by Peter Jackson
Riffing on the loveable Muppet Show, Jackson takes the premise of a family flavoured Muppet (Feeble) run variety show, shoves his arm up its arse and turns it inside out. Henson almost sued him. It’s the day before opening night and the rabbit has a serious case of VD, the rat is making pornos in the basement, and the frog has Vietnam flashbacks. The innocent little hedgehog gasps in horror as the Feebles fuck, fight, shoot smack, shoot guns, and commit largely despicable, often criminal acts, all in the name of vile satire.
