The Muppet MovieDirector: James Frawley, Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Charles Durning
Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear, from of the large crew of loveably fuzzy characters created by puppetmaster Jim Henson, have embarked on a quest for stardom. They take a trip to Hollywood, riding in or on a wide variety of vehicles along the way. They begin their journey on a bicycle pedalled by Kermit, but friends accumulate along the way, and they change vehicles to accomodate them. They have the additional challenge of fending off the entreaties of the heartless Doc Hopper (Charles Durning), who wants Kermit to make some advertisements promoting fried frog legs. Kermit must also cope with his amorous feelings for Miss Piggy, and hers for him. This appealing children's adventure movie has numerous scenes which do homage to classic films, and features a huge cast of Hollywood greats, from Edgar Bergen to Orson Welles, in cameo roles. A great box-office success, this movie paved the way for a number of sequels. One of the film's many songs, "The Rainbow Connection," was nominated for an Oscar.

We had a great time watching this movie. It is fun and the characters are wonderful. My granddaughter sat still the whole movie and has watched it 4 or 5 times since the first time we played it for her. Great family fun.
A really great movie . A lot of singing , dancing and comedy .
We hadn't seen this movie since it was first released years ago, but when we saw it on DVD, we thought our daughter (17 months old), might enjoy it. As it turns out, it is the first movie she has sat all the way through, and she hasn't done that for a Disney movie yet. I think she finds the Muppets entertaining, as do her mom and dad. The story is fun (aside from the frog legs salesman that is constantly going after Kermit), and there are a lot of fun cameo appearances.
After the jokes, the best part is the guest stars.
What great memories. Great music and fun for the whole family. Animal is so funny he will make people laugh.
i luv the muppets!!!!!!!! and this movie is sooooo good. it's cute, funny and great for anyone, of any age. I also think that jim henson is really cool and i luv all of his work.
