Jim Henson’s perennial family favorite starts when Kermit the Frog gets pushed to pursue a career in Hollywood. On a cross-country road trip to the City of Dreams, he meets Fozzie, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, and a whole cast of all-star cameos (including Mel Brooks, Steve Martin, Carol Kane, Cloris Leachman, Elliott Gould, Madeline Kahn, and Bob Hope), all while being chased by the desperate owner of a frog-leg restaurant! With a dynamite soundtrack from the brilliant songwriter Paul Williams and the rocking tunes of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, this rollicking romp will keep your toes tapping and your sides splitting.
