Plot Summary

Kermit the Frog is the manager of a cabaret-style theatre house, which invariably has more drama behind the stage than on it. He has to contend with wannabe-comedian bears, the smothering advances of Miss Piggy, crabby regular theatre patrons, homicidal chefs, livestock, not to mention making the weekly guest star feel welcome.

Trivia Initially, the producers had such trouble casting guest stars that they had to call upon their personal friends in the entertainment industry for help. That changed dramatically after Rudolf Nureyev agreed to appear on Rudolf Nureyev (1978)(#2.13). A renowned ballet dancer appearing on such a bizarre show created such a buzz that the show became popular, and soon celebrities were lining up to appear. See more »
