Way Too Seriously is a weekly podcast in which Jan and Paul Moffett talk about the implicit biases, the assumptions, and the thematic implications of kids’ movies with exactly the appropriate level of seriousness.
In this episode, we talk about 2011’s Muppets. Not to be confused with the Muppet Movie. We talk about whether the Smurfette Principle should actually be called the Miss Piggy Principle, racialized muppets and women who are relentlessly positive.
