Product Overview

They're irreverent, irrepressible, and downright irresistible. They're the Muppets! -- starring in their first full-length movie. See how their meteoric rise to fame and fortune began: with a rainbow, a song...and a Frog. After a fateful meeting with a big-time talent agent, Kermit the Frog heads for Hollywood dreaming of showbiz. Along the way, Fozzie Bear, the Great Gonzo, and the dazzling Miss Piggy join him in hopes of becoming film stars too. But all bets are off when Kermit falls into the clutches of Doc Hopper (Charles Durning), a fast-food mogul seeking to promote his French-fried frog-leg franchise! Featuring Oscar-nominated music (1980, Best Original Song "The Rainbow Connection," Best Original Score) and side-splitting appearances by some of the biggest names on the silver screen -- including Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, Orson Welles, and more! This fully restored and remastered 50th Anniversary Edition of The Muppet Movie is a critically acclaimed comedy classic your family will treasure for all time.

Reviews
ReviewSource Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide
Review Enjoyable showcase for Jim Henson's irresistible characters... Unnecessary movie-star cameos...can't dim Muppets' appeal in their first feature film.

Review ...filled with entertaining cameos, memorable (though somewhat pedestrian) songs and crafty special effects--Kermit rides a bike and rows a boat! A success for the late Jim Henson.
