The Muppets Go Hollywood


Location: Bartos Screening Room

Prod. Jim Henson. 1979, 49 mins. This rarely seen television special highlights the Muppets’s love affair with the movies. Kermit throws a party at the Cocoanut Grove nightclub to celebrate the premiere of The Muppet Movie, and Dick van Dyke and Rita Moreno interview the celebrities and Muppet guests. 

Watching this should whet your appetite for The Muppet Movie which also screens today with special guests to mark the film’s 40th anniversary!
