Muppets, Music & Magic: Jim Henson's Legacy: Muppet Fairytales

Classic children’s 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 Henson’s plush characters as part of the Museum of Fine Arts’ film series “Muppets™, Music, and Magic: Jim Henson’s 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 Shoemaker gets 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 Rapunzel lets 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.
