Kermit the Frog and his Muppet friends take a cross-country trip to become Hollywood stars. Along the way they run into an evil restaurateur Doc Hopper (Charles Durning), who is intent on making Kermit the spokesfrog for his chain of fried frog leg fast food joints. Kermit refuses, Doc hires an assassin and the chase is on. This roadtrip musical comedy boasts special appearances by Madeline Kahn, Richard Pryor, Telly Savalas, Steve Martin and Bob Hope, to name a few. A top 10 box-office hit, it was preserved by the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 2009. — Jaime Mendez
