The Muppets remind me of High School. Back in the 70’s we gathered on Friday nights to watch Kermit and the gang and their silly antics. I can’t help it, I love them. The newest Muppet movie, releasing just before Thanksgiving 2011, looks like it’s going to be a fun romp as well! And I know all those High School friends from so long ago will be checking it out. We’re all turning 50 this year and sadly a few of us didn’t make it this far, but I’m sure that when those that did watch it they’ll think fondly of those days as well. Here’s to the new memories Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and the rest of the gang will give a new generation of fans.
Muppet Movie Synopsis
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) 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 reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
