Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and the whole Muppet gang are at it again. This time, the musical menagerie heads for the Big Apple and the bright lights of Broadway, hoping to turn their own musical into a hit show, only to find it's a more difficult task than they anticipated. In the Big Apple they find the doors of all the reputable producers firmly closed, save for one unsavory character… 

Originally released in 1984 and nominated for an Oscar for best original song, this much beloved Muppets feature film boasts special appearances and cameos by Liza Minelli, Art Carney, James Coco, Dabney Coleman, Gregory Hines, Linda Lavin, Joan Rivers, Brooke Shields, Elliot Gould and John Landis.
