More entertaining than humanly possible!

After a chance meeting with a great talent scout, Kermit goes to Hollywood dreaming about the world of show business. Along the way, Fozzie, Gonzo, and Piggy join him in hopes of also becoming big stars. But everything goes awry when Kermit falls into the clutches of Doc Hopper (Charles Durning), a villain who wants to promote, at all costs, its network of fast food that sells fried frog legs!

Did You Know?

  • Kermit the Frog playing the banjo while sitting on a log took five days to shoot.
  • Jim Henson spent an entire day in a fifty-gallon steel drum submerged in a pond for the opening scene of Kermit the Frog in the swamp.
  • In a 2004 interview, John Landis revealed that he was the puppeteer for Grover during the final sequence, as Frank Oz was busy operating Miss Piggy. Landis also noted that Tim Burton was also amongst the many puppeteers in the finale.
  • Jim Henson was determined to use the larger budget of a feature film to push the technological limits and capabilities of puppetry. One of the most difficult feats (and one that appears deceptively easy on-screen) was making Kermit ride a bicycle.
