We’re back for our second Spooktober episode with another adaptation of Godfather Death, this time with Muppets!

Listen to "Jim Henson's The Storyteller: The Soldier and Death" on Spreaker.

We think we would have found the devil puppets a little scary as kids. What about you?


Here’s Geoffrey’s summary:

This has some similar story elements as Macario, and when I saw Macario I was all "Oh wow, that's like this other thing I saw, except Death was a muppet." Also, I think he tries to go to both Heaven and Hell, but they won't take him.


Fair enough, though Geoffrey left out a bunch of the plot of this one. We both thought this was charming and fun!
