The basic premise of this film is that Gonzo is an extraterrestrial alien. 20 years earlier, in a "Veterinarian's Hospital" sketch on The Muppet Show: Raquel Welch (1978), Rowlf suggested that Gonzo should "leave his body to science fiction". See more »

The Muppets have a film about Gonzo's search for his roots. It turns out that he is extra-terrestrial and his family is coming for him on Earth. The film is your standard Muppets flick with all of the major characters especially Kermit the Frog and the lovable Miss Piggy who seeks stardom at a television station where she gets coffee for the star (Andie McDowell). There is of course it's run of cameos and performances with Jeffrey Tambor as the alien seeking government director who wants to examine Gonzo. Gonzo's friendship with the rat, Rizzo, is tested when they're kidnapped by the government agency. Kathy Griffin has a cameo as a female guard. Ray Liotta is the guard at the gate. I love Miss Piggy as she does what she wants with the agent to protect alien life. Rob Schneider has a small role as a television producer and director. This film is short and it's light-hearted like it should be. It's a family film even for adult muppet fans.
