That's a frog. Bears wear hats.
25 October 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

The Great Muppet Caper is great family movie. They're are very good songs in this movie and it's just as witty as the others. Features several cameos (John Cleese, Oscar the Grouch). I love the seen where the Muppets are going over the check list of items. Priceless. One of the best.
