The Muppets graduate from college and decide to take their senior revue on the road. They hit the streets of Manhattan trying to sell their show to producers, finally finding one young and idealistic enough to take their show.

The last Muppet film to have Kermit the Frog be played by Jim Henson before Steve Whitmire took on the role theatrically since The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992) in the wake of Henson's death in 1990. See more »
When Kermit the Frog plays "All Together Again" with the glasses of water, the cups with more water produce a higher sound. In reality, it's the opposite. See more »
Kermit the Frog:
What's going on here?
Well... uh... we just got job offers. Uh... right guys?
[everyone lies with ad libs, "yeah", "sure", "job offers"]
Kermit the Frog:
That's great. But why do you all look so sad?
Well, it's just... they're kind of... out of town job offers. Right guys?
[more ad libs with "yes", "out of town", etc]
What job did I get?
Gonzo! Shut up!

After the final credits roll, we can hear Animal say "Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Bye Bye...Hasta Luego". See more »
The VHS and Family Channel versions have Animal's slow growls of "BAAAAAAD MAAAAAAN" (at Dabney Coleman) dubbed out, though his repeated shouts of the phrase can be heard at the end of the scene. However, the growls are present on the DVD version. See more »
This is my least-favorite of the three Muppet movies of the Henson era. There just isn't enough Muppets. Most of the gang leaves during the very beginning and it's all about Kermit, Piggy and Rizzo. Great characters, yes, but without the whole wacky ensemble it's just not the same. That, and the film is kind of just reinforcing what happened in the original Muppet movie, only replacing Hollywood with Broadway.
Don't get me wrong, it's an enjoyable movie, but it's not grade 'A' muppet material.
