THE MUPPET MOVIE (1979)
ADVENTURE | G | ATMOSPHERIC THEATER | FAMILY FILM CAMP


More entertaining than humanly possible. After Kermit the Frog decides to pursue a movie career, he starts his cross-country trip from Florida to California. Along the way, he meets and befriends Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and rock musicians Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. When Kermit is offered a job by Doc Hopper (Charles Durning) to advertise the fried frog legs at his restaurant chain, Kermit turns Hopper down. However, Hopper refuses to relent and pursues Kermit and his companions to a final showdown.

A loose rendition of THE WIZARD OF OZ, the film incorporates the same cagey humor as their breakout syndicated TV series, The Muppet Show. Worth noting is Paul Williams’ score, which includes the Oscar-nominated “The Rainbow Connection.” Williams’ music, much like Howard Ashman’s work on THE LITTLE MERMAID and other Disney films, provides more than atmosphere; there’s a degree of magic here.
