The Great Muppet Caper

Part of Jim Henson's World (2021)
Sunday, September 26, 2021, 1:00 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image – Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Jim Henson. 1981, 95 mins. DCP. With Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, Dave Goelz, Charles Grodin, Diana Rigg. Intrepid reporters Kermit, Fozzie Bear, and Gonzo go to London to interview a fashion designer whose jewels have been stolen. When the thieves strike again and Miss Piggy is accused of the crime, Kermit and friends come to the rescue. This delightful follow-up to The Muppet Movie is one of the flat-out funniest of Henson’s feature films, defined by hilariously committed performances from Diana Rigg and a rascally Charles Grodin and the first-ever Busby Berkeley–inspired Muppet musical number, the Oscar-nominated “The First Time It Happens.”
