Muppet Deliverance

In 1975, a Muppet rendition of the 1972 wilderness suspense “Deliverance” emerged titled “Muppet Deliverance”, sparking shock among young fans. In this adaptation, Ned Beatty, portrayed by Fozzie Bear, was subjected to a distressing moment reminiscent of the original’s infamous scene. The traumatizing portrayal prompted a generation of Muppet enthusiasts to swear off woodland adventures for years to come. Reflecting on the impact, a remorseful Jim Henson acknowledged his error and committed to producing only family-friendly content featuring his beloved Muppets, yet the scars left on the young minds of 1975 endured.
