Abby Cadabby provides a magical instant replay of the past for Zoe in episode 4518 of Sesame Street.

A list of flashbacks in Muppet and Henson productions.


  • The Muppet Movie - The film shows how the Muppets got started (or, as Kermit tells Robin, "it's sort of approximately how it happened").
  • Kermit's Swamp Years - Aside from the beginning and end, the whole movie takes place during a time when Kermit was 12-years-old.
  • The Muppets - The movie begins with a montage of Walter and Gary growing up, with Walter narrating. Additionally, Rowlf's exclusion from the montage prompts a flashback to him rejoining the Muppets. In a deleted scene, Tex Richman talks about how his tenth birthday party got ruined due to his inability to laugh at the Muppets.
