The Muppet Movie

Play Trailer

A rollicking road movie featuring cameos by everyone from Big Bird to Orson Welles, The Muppet Movie is a bonafide family classic full of sharp meta-humour and unforgettable songs. Tag along with Kermit the Frog on a cross-country trip to Hollywood while being pursued by an evil restaurateur. Along the way, Kermit meets Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy and Gonzo—not to mention Carol Kane, Bob Hope and Steve Martin—as they drive towards their iconic closing performance of Rainbow Connection.
