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, a fast-food mogul seeking to promote his French-fried frog-leg franchise!
Jim Henson broke new ground with this film by taking puppets to unheard-of locations through the use of special effects, skillful editing, and performance magic. Featuring Oscar-nominated music (Best Original Song "The Rainbow Connection," Best Original Score) and side-splitting appearances by some of the biggest names on the silver screen -- including Dom DeLuise, Edgar Bergen, Bob Hope, Orson Welles, Richard Pryor, Madeline Kahn, Carol Kane, Steve Martin, Mel Brooks and more! THE MUPPET MOVIE is a critically acclaimed comedy classic and a treasure for the whole family.
