"When the Most Popular Frog on TV Goes Missing, Two Brothers Go on an Adventure of a Lifetime."
Based on a true story. This is the remarkable tale of 2 young brothers who go head-to-head with the fbi in order to crack the 'frog-napping' case and get their beloved TV puppet, froggy doo, back on the air, all while becoming local heroes and best friends.

"This family film is willing to tackle important issues such as burgeoning sexuality, alcoholism and a troubled home life...  Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter
"...deliciously blends action, comedy and a touch of sweetness.  Lael Loewenstein, Variety

Editor's Note
In this family comedy, it's 1968, and all is well in the tiny town of Peaks View, Montana. That is, until someone kidnaps beloved TV star (and puppet) Froggy Doo. His costar Happy Herb (Henry Winkler) and the rest of Peaks View can't imagine that someone would kidnap their most popular resident, and soon the FBI arrives to investigate. Based on a true story, A PLUMM SUMMER also stars Jeff Daniels, Billy Baldwin, Lisa Guerrero, Brenda Strong, and Peter Scolari.

Professional Reviews

Los Angeles Times
"[T]here is something refreshing about a homespun, live-action tale of summertime adventure....Such it is with A PLUMM SUMMER, a story inspired by real events..." 04/28/2008

Variety 7 of 10
An amiable retro feel permeates "A Plumm Summer," and it's not just because this family film is set 40 years in the past. Montana-set, reality-inspired pic feels like an homage to a bygone era of moviemaking: It takes its time to build character and story, there's hardly a CG effect in sight, and there's nothing high-concept about it...Imagine a local version of "Sesame Street" where Elmo was stolen, and you have one of the key plot points for "A Plumm Summer." It's a missing-puppet mystery wrapped around a family drama involving a teen's coming-of-age and a wayward dad's quest for redemption...A superbly cast Henry Winkler plays Happy Herb, a beloved Montana TV icon and best pal of puppet Froggy Doo. According to production notes, the real Herb McAllister hosted a top-rated kids' show for more than two decades -- with a brief forced hiatus in 1968, when his puppet mysteriously vanished...Nothing could render 5-year-old Rocky Plumm (a scene-stealing Owen Pearce) more miserable than the theft of his favorite TV character. With their parents (William Baldwin, Lisa Guerrero) constantly bickering, Rocky's adolescent brother Elliott (Chris J. Kelly) is more concerned with finding his own place in the world than placating the tyke. But when a beautiful girl (Morgan Flynn) with a taste for sleuthing moves in next door, Rocky and the teens set out to solve the crime...Naturally, there are a few red herrings along the way, and a denouement that deliciously blends action, comedy and a touch of sweetness...That combination is exactly what distingushes Caroline Zelder's debut feature, and it's likely what attracted this talented group of actors to the script (credited to Zelder, Frank Antonelli, and T.J. Lynch). Zelder has a way of imbuing even the smallest gestures -- like a teenager's slump or a 5-year-old's intractable stare -- with meaning. - Lael Loewenstein
