Abstract:

On a fine day not so long ago, Kermit the Frog was playing and singing in the swamp. A lost Hollywood talent agent hears him, and tells him he has talent. Therefore, Kermit sets out for Hollywood to find fame and fortune. Along the way Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, the Electric Mayhem band, and the romantically inclined Miss Piggy join him. Fast food magnate Doc Hopper--who is determined to enlist Kermit as spokes-frog for his southern fried frog-leg restaurants--also follows him. Doc 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.
