Storyline

Cinderella lives with her wicked stepmother (as everyone who ever read the fairy tale knows), but what part of the story is never told is how Cinderella's fairy godmother had help from monsters, a prince pretending to be a gardener, and none other than Kermit the Frog. Written by Max Vaughn

Quotes

Kermit the Frog: What you want is a girl who doesn't know you. And that's impossible, so why don't you just give up and go back to your gardening?
Prince Arthur Charming: What's the point? I'm a terrible gardener. The only things that grow in this mud are the gerraniums, and they were planted by the people we rented this castle from.
Kermit the Frog: Aw, don't sell yourself short. Those tangerines over there don't look so bad. A little small maybe, but...
Prince Arthur Charming: Those are pumpkins.
Kermit the Frog: Uh huh. You know something?
Prince Arthur Charming: What?

unique idea
20 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie as a child and think it is probably the most unique version of Cinderella I've ever seen! It is absolutely magical and real. I wish I could come across it again, it's sad, romantic, funny- everything a little girl could want. The genius behind the writing is that it isn't your typical fairy tale story where everything comes together once the prince finds his princess but takes a more unique approach to the most beloved story of all time. The ideas behind Cinderella's rag to riches transformation was magic of its own. And the fanciful approach with the muppets made the movie great for families. Jim Henson did it right when he made this one!
