THE MUPPET MOVIE (Theatrical Release USA 1979)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

The Muppet Movie—the best of the Muppet movie series—has higher quality and a much better storyline than the later produced muppet films. The movie provides a satisfactory release of nostalgia as the story unfolds of how the Muppets form a family. Good job by The Jim Henson Company.

Storyline

While on a voyage to Hollywood, Kermit, the frog, needs to avoid a frog leg hunter.
