The Muppets Take Manhattan #2: " Rats want job. Frog want job. What next, penguins?" - Pete

The Muppets Take Manhattan



Summary
Quote:
When the Muppets graduate from Danhurst College, they take their song-filled senior revue to New York City, only to learn that it isn't easy to find a producer who's willing to back a show starring a frog and a pig. Of course, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy won't take no for an answer, launching a search for someone to take them to Broadway. Jim Henson, Dave Goelz and director Frank Oz provide most of the voices for this Oscar-nominated comedy

--In an interview, Juliana Donald (Jenny) recalled how filming of the jogging scene in the park was temporarily delayed by a camera problem. In wide eyed amazement, a little boy passing by approached and started talking to Kermit the Frog, oblivious to Jim Henson operating him. Despite the surrounding commotion of technicians trying to fix the camera issue, Jim started interacting with the boy. Moments later, Jim found himself doing an impromptu performance with Kermit for an entire group of children who had gathered around to watch. Juliana said, "It was so memorable to me because time just stopped. It was a wonderfully magical moment where you experience someone's true joy with their work."

--First appearance of the Muppet Babies (1984) characters, whose cartoon premiered two months after the film's release.

--Rizzo the Rat appeared throughout the final season of The Muppet Show (1976) and along with Scooter as the Happiness Hotel bellhops in The Great Muppet Caper (1981), but this is his first major role with The Muppets and his first appearance with his more "wiseguy" personality.

--The entire movie was made as an homage to the old Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney musicals.

--Steve Martin, Michael Jackson, Lily Tomlin, Richard Pryor, and Sir Laurence Olivier were up for cameos.
