Make Mine Muppets: Your Guide To The Muppet Movies | The Great Muppet Caper (1981)
The Great Muppet Caper (1981)

Caper keeps to the format of blending musical numbers with the usual madcap Muppet behaviour. This time around, they cook up a criminal mystery, with Kermit and Fozzie as reporters dispatched to England alongside photographer Gonzo to track down the victim of a jewel theft. Along the way, they confront cheating toffs, light-fingered clothes models and Miss Piggy, who has been trying to kick-start her own career as a fashion star. Never letting logic get in the way of a good gag (Dr Teeth and the Electric Mayhem are seemingly permanent residents of a run-down London hotel), it’s a knockabout romp in more ways than one, particularly since Piggy gets to deliver a flurry of karate chops.

For those playing spot-the-famous person-in-a-small-role? John Cleese, Peter Ustinov and Robert Morley are among those who show up besides more featured cast members Charles Grodin, Diana Rigg and Kate Howard.

1 RE: A Muppets Movie without Yoda..!?
L: slaveone Where's Frank Oz gone? I was unaware of this! How's that gonna work..? Gutted actually! e's been gone for about ten years so if you haven't noticed before now I wouldn't be too worried. He left to focus on directing. His replacement is very good; he's no Frank Oz but it's impossible to match him. His Fozzie in particular is great. The 2nd/3rd generation Muppeteers are all excellent. Can't wait for the new movie, it's a shame we have to wait for months after the US release. More
