The Muppet Movie - 1979

Director: James Frawley
Writers: Jack Burns & Jerry Juhl
Starring: Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, David Goelz

"I didn't promise anybody anything. What do I know about Hollywood, anyway? Just a dream I got from sitting through too many double features." Kermit (Henson) and the gang first meet during Kermit's voyage to Hollywood to become an entertainer.

I hope the Muppets are around forever. This movie works both in terms of script and technically just as well as it did over thirty years ago.  I just wish I had gotten around to it sooner. Still need to see Caper and Manhattan, but I'm looking forward to what Segel's done with it even more now. A+
