Incredibly appealing. A great composition of music and comedy starring the iconic Muppets in their first feature film.

Just a really fun, warm, fuzzy movie featuring the loveable Muppets. While I prefer Muppets Take Manhattan myself, this is still an excellent showcase for the antics of Kermit, Piggy, Gonzo and the all the rest of the unforgettable characters.

The Muppet Movie is a triumph in technical achievement and complexity in children’s cinema. It’s easy to miss, especially in hindsight, but The Muppet Movie is surprisingly complex. and at the end the characters do fail, they try to create something and fail, but the ending is still happy because it doesn’t matter if you ever bring your dreams to fruition or not, it’s the pursuit of dreams that makes life worth living, It’s purpose that breaths character in to life. The Muppet Movie takes that surprisingly deep concept and makes it palatable to children as well as adults by adding awesome comedy and endearing Muppet characters to the mix. The movie is also enjoyably from its shocking technical achievements. The Muppets are only made of felt and plastic, but Jim Henson and …
