Overview

An origin story for the ages. Before he was famous, Kermit the Frog lived a simple life in a Florida swamp. One day, Kermit is sitting on a log, playing the banjo sweetly to himself when a big-deal Hollywood agent named Bernie rows by. Impressed with Kermit’s musical talents, Bernie encourages the frog to pursue a career in show business. Kermit likes the idea of making millions of people happy, so he sets off on his cross-country adventure. Along the way, Kermit meets the hapless stand-up comedian Fozzie Bear, the glamorous and feisty Miss Piggy, and the rock band Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. But of course, Hollywood isn’t all friendly faces, so Kermit must keep his wits about him and evade the evil entrepreneur Doc Hopper and his hired assassin.
