Together Again

The Muppets Take Manhattan is the third Muppet movie and the only one directed by Miss Piggy himself Frank Oz. Jim Henson just sticks to producing and performing Kermit the Frog this time around. The Muppets Take Manhattan is a Muppet movie I’ve seen more than once. One time in full and a few times on TV. Making it one of my favorite Muppet movies. Since I feel it best emphasizes the Muppets best character traits. The Muppets Take Manhattan is done in the style of an old fashion broadway dreamer story. With all the mid 80’s celebrities or songs like “Together Again” you’d expect. The Muppets are fresh out of college with plans of taking their show on broadway. However, constant rejection causes them to go their separate ways. Kermit stays in New York (so does Miss Piggy, but Kermit doesn’t know that), meanwhile the Muppets lead a wacky assortment of jobs. Fozzie is living with the bears, Scooter is an usher, Gonzo is a stunt performer, and Rowlf is in a kenal. Kermit is still trying to get the show made while staying at a rat infested restaurant. Where he works with a girl who has dreams of her own. Miss Piggy is jealous of course. The Muppets Take Manhattan is one of the funnier Muppet movies. Mostly when Kermit disguises himself and loses his memory. It’s also one of the sweetest because Kermit and Miss Piggy finally get married. Plus the Muppet Babies appear for the first time. The Muppets Take Manhattan is a gold standard Muppet movie.
