Classic childrens stories get a hand in Muppet Fairytales. (Get it? Hand? Muppets? People use their hands to make the
never mind.) Target Free First Sundays: Family Flicks presents a handful of tales starring Jim Hensons plush characters as part of the Museum of Fine Arts film series Muppets, Music, and Magic: Jim Hensons Legacy. First up is The Frog Prince, with Kermit and Miss Piggy reliving the tale of a princess whose only hope of unlocking her true love from his slimy facade is kissing his icky lips. Next up, The Elves and The Shoemakergets a hunka-hunka burnin twist. In this Muppet rendition, the overworked shoemaker receives help from a band of Elvises. After that, see what happens when Rapunzellets down her long golden locks on Sesame Street. 3:30 p.m. 1001 Bissonnet. For tickets and information, call 713-639-7771 or visit www.mfah.org/films. Free.
