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]

As breezy and charming an entertainment as any barnyard ever produced. [6 July 1981, p.75]

The Muppets are a wonderful creation, but they lose their special quality in The Great Muppet Caper. They behave like clones of other popular kiddie superstars -- like the basic cartoon heroes they once seemed destined to replace.
