Musical comedies get the Muppet treatment with the hilarious origin story of the world’s most unusual theatrical troupe! Before he became a big star, Kermit the Frog (Henson) was a humble banjo-playing amphibian who dreamed of leaving the swamp for Hollywood. Encouraged by a visiting agent (Dom DeLuise), Kermit sets out on the road to Tinsel Town. Along the way he befriends struggling comic Fozzie the Bear (Frank Oz), plumber/stunt performer The Great Gonzo (Dave Goelz) and beauty pageant queen Miss Piggy (Oz again). During the rag-tag team’s journey, their paths cross with Doc Hopper (Charles Durning), the king of the fast food franchise that specializes in fried frog legs. Will Kermit and his crew reach the West Coast before the evil Hopper serves them up for Sunday dinner? From the opening scene of Kermit singing Paul Williams’ enduring Rainbow Connection to the rousing finale, you and your family will enjoy a wonderful trip!
