When the Muppets graduate from Danhurst College, they take their song-filled senior revue to New York City, only to learn that it isn’t easy to find a producer who’s willing to back a show starring a frog and a pig. Of course, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy won’t take no for an answer, launching a search for someone to take them to Broadway. Just as their theatrical dreams are about to come true, Kermit loses his memory from an accident and finds himself in an office. Can Piggy and the gang find Kermie before their big debut? Jam-packed with humor, thrills, puppets, toe-tapping tunes, and a slew of celebrity cameos from Gregory Hines to Joan Rivers, Elliot Gould, Brook Shields and Liza Minelli, this is one Muppet adventure with Big Apple appeal!
