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.

Shortly before the DVD release Courtney Love
, the widow of Kurt Cobain
, gave an interview in which she accused The Muppets
of "raping Cobain's legacy" by covering Nirvana
's song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" as a barbershop quartet and that the filmmakers never received her permission. Surviving Nirvana members Krist Novoselic
and Dave Grohl
(who also has a cameo in the film as Animool) both loved the rendition of their song but refused to say anything about Love's statements. See more

and Piggy, the counter clearly reads $9.8 million. See more

[Uncle Deadly grabs the boltcutters to stop Tex
Deadly! What are you doing?
Enough! Just because I have a terrifying name and an evil English accent, does not preclude the fact that, in my heart, I am a Muppet, not a Moopet! Looks like it's I who will have the last laugh!
What does that mean?
It's an idiom, you idiot, because you cannot laugh! Ha ha!
