Movie Info & Cast


The Muppets find themselves embroiled in a jewel heist in their second foray onto the big screen. Kermit, Fozzie and Gonzo attempt to restore their sullied journalistic reputations by identifying the thief who has been stealing gems from fashion designer Lady Holliday. "The Muppet Movie" involves even more spectacular scenes for this film, including a group bicycle ride in a London park, an aqua ballet "Miss Piggy style," and a tux-and-tails dance sequence.

THE GREAT MUPPET CAPER is Miss Piggy's finest hour. Anyone not yet entranced by the Muppet mystique will be snared by this movie... A delight -- a tribute to the imaginative genius of Jim Henson and his team of Muppet manipulators. [29 June 1981]

Ballooning. Biking. Swimming. Parachuting. The Great Muppet Caper represented a giant leap for Muppetkind, in only their second big-screen outing.
