Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear are newspaper reporters sent to London to interview Lady Holiday (Dame Diana Rigg), a wealthy fashion designer whose priceless diamond necklace was stolen. Kermit meets and falls in love with her secretary, Miss Piggy. The jewel thieves strike again, and this time, frame Miss Piggy. It's up to Kermit and The Muppets to bring the real culprits to justice.Written by

In a parody of the MGM Studios logo, this film opens with Animal roaring like the MGM lion. He then proceeds to partly devour the surrounding title card, but turns around and sees a hot air balloon overhead. See more »

Anglophile that I am, I love "The Great Muppet Caper," and think I might like it even more than the original "Muppet Movie."
The gang find themselves foiling the plot of a group of crack diamond thieves led by Charles Grodin, and it's a hoot to watch the slick, professional thieves' preparations and actions juxtaposed to the loud, crude antics of the Muppets. There's a pretty funny musical number that finds Miss Piggy ripping off Esther Williams, and another lovely song performed while the entire group goes bike riding. Long before the days of jacked up special effects when anything can be done using a computer, I remember being astounded by the fact that this special effects team could make the Muppets ride bicycles. Ah, what a more innocent time....
