Dorothy Gale lives with her Auntie Em and Uncle Henry in a trailer park in Kansas. Dorothy has dreams of becoming a famous singer, but when a tornado hits Kansas and Dorothy rushes to save Toto, her prawn (she couldn't afford a dog), she is whisked away to Oz where she meets the four witches (all played by Miss Piggy) and the Munchkins of Oz (the rats). On her way to see the Wizard, she meets the Scarecrow (Kermit), the Tin Thing (Gonzo), and the Cowardly Lion (Fozzie) who all wish to have something given by the wizard. On their way to Emerald City, they are captured by the Wicked Witch of the West (of course, Miss Piggy) and her flying monkeys (other muppets). When they finally make it back to Emerald City, the Wizard is really a man from Hollywood. But he "grants" their wishes, but what they wanted they already had inside (there's a lesson there). When Dorothy finally is back in Kansas, she becomes what she had wanted, a famous singer and on the Muppets Star Search show. Written by

Towards the end, as Dorothy and Co leave the stage, the Wiz is holding his hand out to shake hands, and in the close up shot he has taken his specs off. When we zoom out, and Toto says something to him, he is still wearing his glasses. See more »

Such a Sad Statement of Muppet Affairs...The Weakest Of The Muppet Line
Jim, Jim, wherefore art thou, Jim! I have to say this was the first time I was genuinely disappointed by any Muppet movie. This was nothing more than a tribute to the next little pop star, Ashanti, and it made it feel like a selling out of all things Muppet. This work was pretty weak, the adaptation itself was horrendous, and the acting was ... (I hate to say it) sad.
I hope with all My little Muppet Heart, that Brian does something innovative and GOOD to give us something back from this horrendous disappointment.
Yes, it really WAS that bad. *sighs* It rates a 3.4/10 from...
