Trivia

Kermit, Croaker and Goggles are saved by Arnie the Alligator from Dr. Krassman and his assistant Mary. Arnie the Alligator is the same gator that attacks Bernie the Agent that tells Kermit about the auditions for frogs in Hollywood in "The Muppet Movie". However, they use a Muppet alligator for this movie instead of a realistic looking mechanical alligator. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Young Kermit, Croaker, and Pilgrim are under the bench in George Washington High School, a dark moving figure (possibly Bill Barretta) is seen moving with Croaker. See more »

Not that great. Perhaps very young children might enjoy this. I would be surprised if many folks over 9 or 10 find Kermit's Swamp Year's entertaining. It's lacking in charm, wit and humor. The best part of the DVD is the Behind-the-scenes featurette with the armadillo and the on the set interview with Kermit. If the movie were as funny as the special features, it would be worth having.
