The "Town Musicians of Bremen" (German: Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten) is a popular fairy tale retrieved and recorded by the Brothers Grimm. It was first published in Grimms' Fairy Tales in 1819. It tells the story of four aging domestic animals, who after a lifetime of hard work are neglected and mistreated by their former masters. Eventually, they decide to run away and become town musicians in the city of Bremen
The Muppet Show is the first soundtrack album released from the TV show of the same name. It reached number one in the UK Albums Chart in the week ending 25 June 1977. In 1979, The album won The Grammy Award for Best Album for Children. Eventually, they decide to run away and become town musicians in the city of Bremen. Contrary to the story's title the characters never arrive in Bremen, as they succeed in tricking and scaring off a band of robbers, capturing their spoils, and moving into their house. According to the Aarne–Thompson classification system, the story qualifies as a Type 130 folktale ("Outcast animals find a new home").

It is directed and produced by The Muppet's creator Jim Henson. Kermit the Frog hosts the special. Eventually, Catgut is uplifted by the prospects of her new future, and joins the animal musicians playing the trumpet. At night, the animals rest in a swamp until they see a light from a nearby farmhouse. Leroy decides to approach the farmhouse, and mistakes a gang of robbers (who happen to be the animals' old owners) as a family inside having dinner.

Four mistreated farm animals seek refuge as a band of traveling musicians in this musical tale narrated by Kermit the Frog. Director: Jim Henson. I found myself bored and disappointed. Check out Henson's much better Muppet fairy tale specials from this era, like "Hey, Cinderella" or the masterpiece "Frog Prince". Musicians of Bremen" however, probably won't hold the attention of you or your child very well.
