Product Overview

Jim Henson's Muppets make their film debut in this charming story that chronicles their rise to fame. It all begins with Kermit the Frog sitting in a swamp singing and strumming a guitar. Realizing he can use his talent to "make people happy," Kermit decides to head for Hollywood. During his trip, Kermit meets fellow Muppets Fozzie the Bear, the Great Gonzo, Miss Piggy, and an odd assortment of others who join Kermit on his song-filled journey. But before Kermit and friends achieve their dreams of stardom, Kermit must confront the man who's been trying to catch him since he left the swamp--a man who sees Kermit as a potential meal ticket. THE MUPPET MOVIE is a lovingly made, touching story for kids of all ages as only Jim Henson could make it. The film includes clever, very funny cameo appearances by Milton Berle, Mel Brooks, Bob Hope, Cloris Leachman, Steve Martin, Richard Pryor, Telly Savalas, and Orson Welles. Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Song ("The Rainbow Connection"), Best Original Song Score.

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.
