Gonzo is contacted by his alien family through his breakfast cereal. But when the men in black kidnap him, it's up to Kermit and the gang to rescue Gonzo and help him reunite with his long-lost family.
The Muppets perform six classic fairy tales: Three Little Pigs, King Midas' Golden Touch, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Rumpelstiltskin, The Emperor's New Clothes and The Elves and the Shoemaker. Hosted by Gonzo and Rizzo the Rat.
After Gonzo receives messages from his breakfast cereal, he determines that he is an alien and tries to contact his alien brethren, but is captured by an overzealous secret government agency determined to prove the existence of extraterrestrial life. It's up to Kermit and the gang to rescue Gonzo and help reunite him with his long-lost family.Written by
This in the first The Muppets film since the deaths of Jim Henson and Richard Hunt in which Rowlf, Scooter, and Dr. Teeth talk. Rowlf's only line is "Awwww!" at the breakfast table, when he finds out they're having bologna. Dr. Teeth's only line is "Shalom!", on the way to a bar mitzvah. Scooter was voiced by Richard's brother Adam Hunt, and his line is "Get your Gonzo T-shirts. Only ten bucks!" See more »
One of the "R U There" messages is shown in Hollywood, California. Later, a globe showing the spiral formation of the messages has the western most portion of the spiral east of California. See more »
What a great day.
That was probably the best day of my whole life. There's just one thing I still don't understand.
What's that, Gonzo?
Why did they ask me to build a jacuzzi?

I love the Muppets (discounting that pig)- I love Jim Henson. The best thing about this movie is the soundtrack. The opening scene with the muppets getting down to "Brickhouse" is hysterical! Its all 60's and 70's funk music, and really promotes the fun and lively mood of the movie. While this is no "Great Muppet Caper", its funny and amusing. If you aren't a muppet fan, this probably won't make you one. If you already are, its a must see. The addition of Pepe to the cast is genius. He's the Cosmo Kramer of the muppets, adding tons of comic relief and spice. I would have given it an 8 if not for a cameo by a professional wrestler that almost made me walk out. Luckily, it was over shortly and quickly forgotten.
