Your Entertainment Will Depend on Your Thoughts on The Muppets
5 August 2016 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

The Muppets Go Hollywood (1979)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Your entertainment level for this made-for-television special will certainly depend on how much you enjoy The Muppets. This promotional piece was basically a tie-in for THE MUPPET MOVIE and is hosted by Dick Van Dyke and Rita Moreno with a performance by Johnny Mathis.

I will gladly admit that I'm not the biggest fan of The Muppets so perhaps that's why I wasn't blown away by this special. Going by reviews it seems fans of the creatures were very happy with this television special, which was basically getting them to Hollywood and showing them off with various celebrities who make cameo appearances. We see Kermit, Miss Piggy and various other members of the gang mixing it up with the famous but I just didn't find much of it very funny.
