  1. The Muppet Movie (1979)
    • The Original, the Irreplaceable. The Muppet Movie is hard to describe other than: Charmingly Memorable. We’re introduced to Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, and the whole gang. ‘The Rainbow Connection’ sets the scene and transports you to a swamp where a positive little frog is set on changing the world.
  2. The Great Muppet Caper (1981)
    • Kermit has got a mystery to solve as he plays a reporter on the hunt for a jewelry thief! Will he be able to help Miss Piggy in time?
  3. The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984)
    • Will Kermit be able to take the hit, ‘The Muppet Show’ onto a Broadway Stage? Kermit has endless positivity and determination. Like all of us, he may feel down, but with the help of his friends, he always finds a way to pull through.
  4. The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
    • Christmas may have passed, but A Muppet Christmas Carol is a classic that can be enjoyed no matter what season it is. This re-imagining may be just the thing you need when you’re looking for something that shows the true meaning of caring, and of course – CHRISTMAS!
  5. Muppet Treasure Island (1996)
    • This writers’ personal favorite – not that anyone was asking. Muppet Treasure Island is a reimagining of the novel ‘Treasure Island’ by Robert Louis Stevenson. It’s a great mix of a timeless classic mixed with the comedy and musicality that comes with everything Muppets.
  6. Muppets from Space (1999)
    • Gonzo is on the hunt to find his family, and if that means breaking into a government facility, the crew is going to help this ‘Whatever’ out by any means necessary! This story is all about trying to find who you really are, and in a way, hasn’t everyone been a Gonzo at one point?
  7. The Muppets (2011)
    • A return to the classics. 32 years after their first feature film, The Muppets film pays homage to their original 1979 film in order to make things simpler and to get back to the basics of what The Muppets were really about.
  8. Muppets Most Wanted (2014)
    • A jewel heist brings The Muppets to Paris. But now Kermit is the accused? I have a feeling that his buddies are going to have to help him out of this one!
