The Great Muppet Caper

Stop the presses! The crime of the century has occurred and investigative reporters Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo are out to crack the case in the song-filled, star-studded extravaganza that’s the only feature length Muppet Movie directed by the legendary Jim Henson himself! It’s a puppet-packed madcap musical mystery with remarkable production numbers, hilarious human performances from Charles Grodin & Diana Rigg, superstar cameos and wall-to-wall felty fun as our fuzzy friends must help catch a group of jewel thieves while singing and dancing across the streets of London with riotously unruly abandon. It’s full of action, romance, excitement and non-stop energy in the greatest Muppet tradition!

”All hail Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy! They’ve been around for a while, but their romantic possibilities are the revelation of The Great Muppet Caper, the new, sometimes riotously unruly Muppet movie” – Vincent Canby, The New York Times
