MUPPET MOVIE, THE (1979)
In their first foray onto the silver screen, Kermit the Frog and his Muppet cohorts Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Miss Piggy and the gang sing their way to Hollywood, hoping to make it big. But Charles Durning's evil Doc Hopper, a frog-leg restaurant magnate, has other plans for Kermit. Tremendously funny — as much for adults as for kids, and maybe more so — with memorable musical numbers like Oscar®-nominated "Rainbow Connection" and "Movin' Right Along," plus cameos galore, including Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, Madeline Kahn, Richard Pryor, Carol Kane, Cloris Leachman, Orson Welles and Bob Hope. DIR James Frawley; SCR Jack Burns, Jerry Juhl; PROD Jim Henson. UK/U.S., 1979, color, 95 min. RATED G
