The Muppet Movie


(1978) dir James Frawley w/Kermit, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, and the whole Muppet gang + Charles Durning, Milton Berle, Mel Brooks, James Coburn, Dom DeLuise, Elliott Gould, Bob Hope, Madeline Kahn, Steve Martin, Richard Pryor, Telly Savalas and Orson Welles [95 min; 35mm]
An origin tale for everyone’s favorite troupe of felt-skinned entertainers, THE MUPPET MOVIE follows Kermit the Frog from his humble beginnings as a swamp-bound crooner to his current place as an internationally renowned writer/director/actor. Along the way, he meets the zany cast of weirdos that we’ve come to know and love, and has a series of adventures while trying to avoid the nefarious fast-food impresario Doc Hopper.

“There is a satisfying joy in revisiting your childhood films and finding that not only have you remembered them correctly, but they have much more depth to them—depth added specifically for adult viewers—than you knew.” —Deirdre Crimmins
