The Muppets - Official 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.

The Muppets - Fun for Families
How long has it been since the Muppets last big-screen debut? 11 long years. So, while many kids today know who Miss Piggy and Kermit are, they really don't get the full greatness of the Muppets. If you want to introduce the kids to the Muppets leading up to the new film, the Muppets have starred in a number of movies including the following Muppet greats:
- The Muppet Movie (1979)
- The Great Muppet Caper (1981)
- The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984)
- The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992) -- my personal favorite!
The Muppets also starred in a TV series and a slew of TV specials. You can find a complete list of Muppets movies, shows and specials on the Wikipedia page for The Muppets.
