When 3 Muppet fans learn that Tex Richman wants to drill under the Muppet Theater for oil, Gary, Mary and Walter set out to find the Muppets who have been split up for years so that they can put on one last show and save the Muppet Theater. Kermit the Frog now lives in his own mansion depressed in Hollywood, 'The Great Gonzo' is a high class plumber at Gonzo's Royal Flush, Fozzie Bear performs with a tribute band called The Moopets, Miss Piggy is the plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, and Animal is at a celebrity anger management rehab center in Santa Barbara.

Did You Know?
wrote four original songs in the film: "Life's A Happy Song", "Me Party", "Let's Talk About Me" and the Oscar-winning "Man or Muppet"; two more, "Pictures in My Head" and "The Whistling Caruso", were written by other artists, but produced by McKenzie. All other songs in the film are from earlier Muppets projects (such as "Rainbow Connection") or from outside the Muppet universe (like "Forget You", "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Mahna-Mahna").

Kermit the Frog
Listen everybody, we've got nothing to be ashamed of. And you know why? Well because, thanks to Walter here we tried. And if we failed, we failed together and to me that's not failing at all. And I don't care what anybody says, I don't care if no one believes in us because... I believe. I believe in you. And you. And you. You know what's important isn't this building or name, it's each other. So I say fine, let's just start from the bottom and work our way back up to the top. Let's all walk out...
