Our Score
This charming fantasy comedy gives an insight into Kermit the Frog's life before he joined The Muppet Show. The magic of Jim Henson's original creations is evident throughout and there's plenty of mischief - including a cameo from a younger Statler and Waldorf. The storyline sees Kermit and Croaker come to the rescue of their amphibian pal Goggles after he's captured and sold to a nasty biology teacher. It's a shame there's no room for a walk-on part for Miss Piggy, but there's plenty of fun to be had from the songs and comic set pieces.


The fast-talking frog sets out in pursuit of a kidnapper who has abducted his friend. Leaving the safety of his marshland home, he follows a trail that leads him to the bright lights of Hollywood - but he also has to contend with an evil scientist along the way. Muppet comedy adventure, with Christian Kebbel and the voices of Steve Whitmire, Dave Goelz and Bill Baretta.
