On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary and Mary from Smalltown, US, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10-million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit the Frog reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways. —Walt Disney Pictures
I would've loved this movie as a child. I would've seen it approximately 7 times in the theater. I would've dipped into my piggy bank and gone to the videostore to rent the VHS as soon as it came out. I would've wished for the VHS for my birthday or christmas. I would've watched it over and over again untill the plastic strip inside the tape melted. Too bad I've become a cynical asshole. 1 star.
