All they need now is someone to produce their show! But when no one in town will even meet with them, it's up to Kermit to believe hard enough for all of his friends that the show will go on!

Editorial Review

Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Scooter, and the rest of the Muppets are celebrating their impending graduation from college by performing Kermit's original musical Manhattan Melodies for their senior variety show. Following graduation, the friends decide to take the production to Broadway, but things don't go quite as planned. They end up living in bus station lockers and hanging out at a local restaurant while waiting for their Broadway dream to become a reality. Eventually, the gang loses hope, everyone goes their separate ways, and Kermit is left alone in New York City. After his initial disillusionment, Kermit rallies and develops a three-step plan to get his play onto the Broadway stage. The question is, will it work? And even if the play makes it to Broadway, will it be too late to reunite all the Muppets? The Muppets Take Manhattan is full of fun song and dance, the puppetry is great, and New York scenery abounds at every turn. Add a generous handful of guest cameos featuring famous personalities like Liza Minnelli, Joan Rivers, Dabney Coleman, and Vincent Sardi–cameos that were written not just as showcases, but as integral parts of the plot–and the talented Frank Oz making his directing debut, and this 1984 production earns its position as one of the classic Muppet Movies. The 2011 Blu-ray offers pretty good picture quality, but the most notable improvement from the previous DVD release is that the interview with Jim Henson, which was originally spliced into 14 separate menu segments, can now be watched individually or as one continuous (albeit still choppy) feature.
