The Muppet Movie is the journey of the Muppets’ meteoric rise to fame and fortune, beginning 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 (Charles Durning), a fast-food mogul seeking to promote his French-fried frog-leg franchise! Featuring Oscar-nominated music (1980, Best Original Song "The Rainbow Connection" and Best Original Score) and sidesplitting appearances by some of the biggest names on the silver screen, including Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, and Orson Welles.
