Synopsis / Plot
Kermit the Frog is discovered playing banjo in the Florida swamps by a talent agent and told that he has promise. And so Kermit sets out for Hollywood to find fame and fortune. He is joined along the way by a bizarre menagerie of creatures, including Fozzie Bear and the romantically inclined Miss Piggy. However he is also followed by fast food chain magnate Doc Hopper, who is determined to enlist Kermit as spokesman for his frog-leg burgers. As Hopper employs all means underhand to suborn Kermit, including abducting Miss Piggy, Kermit must make a choice between stopping Hopper and dashing the other Muppets dreams of the big time.
