This Week’s Homework: THE MUPPET MOVIE
- The kinda, approximate origin of the world famous muppets. Kermit, fresh out of the swamp and on the run from a frogs-leg-merchant, treks across America with new found friends to find success in Hollywood.
- Director: James Frawley
- Writers: Jack Burns, Jerry Juhl,
- Cast: Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, Dave Goelz, and too many cameos to count (like 16 or something).
- The film acts as an allegory for Henson’s real rise to fame.
- A positive, pun-filled, sincere film about positivity and the power of friendship.
- It’s so much fun.
- The fourth wall breaks.
- The music by Paul Williams
- Because it’s the muppets!
