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 »

My feelings on this Muppet outing are rather lukewarm this time around
26 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just for the record, I am a big fan of the Muppets, The Muppet Show and Muppet Babies were part of my childhoods, and I love all their specials and movies, excepting Letters to Santa, Muppet Wizard of Oz and this. Kermit's Swamp Years is not terrible, it's just that I had a very lukewarm reception towards it. The costume and set design are splendid, the voice work is great especially from Steve Whitmire and Dave Goelz and there are some cute moments such as the outtakes. However, the songs are mediocre, especially the uninspired lyrics, the script and jokes fall flat due to a lack of comic timing with the human cast with little of the material coming across as memorable or quotable, the story is dull and very basic with too much emphasis on the comic elements consequently the wit and heart is gone and the human cast range from so-so(Drew Haggard) to quite bad(John Hostetter). All in all, didn't do much for me, as much as I do love the Muppets. 4/10 Bethany Cox
