The first draft titled The Muppets: The Legend Continues, written by The Great Muppet Caper (1981) scribes Jay Tarses and Tom Patchett, was dismissed by Frank Oz for being "way too over jokey". After being given Jim Henson's encouragement to tinker with the script, Oz revised the screenplay in an effort to develop the "oomph of the characters and their relationships". See more »

Kermit the Frog:
Me? In love with a pig? Wait 'til I tell the guys in marketing.

After the final credits roll, you 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 »
The Muppets gang graduate from college, and try to make it on Broadway. Only they can't find any takers. The gang decide to go on their own, and not depend on Kermit so much. Meanwhile Kermit works in a diner, and try to get his play off the ground.
This starts off great with a lot of comedy from the whole gang. Dabney Coleman is great for some gut busting laughs. It's too bad that the gang is scattered after the start. Miss Piggy has some hilarious fun, but I prefer to have the whole gang together. They're funnier together.
The main live action lead is Juliana Donald who's trying to help Kermit get the play off the ground. She doesn't have any sparks, and looks awkward like she's acting with a bunch of puppets. There are a lot of famous cameos. I'd prefer to have Brooke Shields as the lead. Beside that, there is a lot to love, and a lot of laughs in this Muppets movie.
