In celebration of the upcoming Muppets major motion picture release!
By now, all but the most media-averse souls are aware that the Muppets will soon be lighting up movie screens in The Muppets, their first theatrical film in over a decade. Just a few days before the film’s release, The Muppet Vault: A Very Muppet Comeback celebrates the triumphant return of Kermit and Miss Piggy and the gang to big-screen glory with an afternoon of some of greatest and most entertaining classic Muppet clips. Brought to you by the creators of Muppet fan website ToughPigs.com and Secret Formula!
The event will kick off with a screening of the rare TV special The Muppets Go Hollywood, originally aired to mark the occasion of the Muppets’ very first movie back in 1979. Dick Van Dyke and Rita Moreno host, the Swedish Chef sings, and a good time is had by all. The fun continues with a selection of classic clips hand-picked by Muppet fans, plus a few new video treats from the Muppets’ recent media blitz that you may have missed the first time around! As always, there will be Muppet-themed drink specials, audience participation, cool giveaways, sing-along fun, and more.
