  • Episode Description
  • Kermit and company want their musical – Manhattan Melodies – on Broadway – believing it would be a surefire hit (though Kermit thinks it still needs work). Unfortunately, they face rejection after rejection. With their prospects low and money scarce, a difficult decision is made – much to Kermit's regret. Most of the Muppets go their separate ways, leave Manhattan and find other jobs. A determined Kermit, however, remains – working toward selling the show and reuniting his friends. Mayhem ensues, but just when it looks like Kermit will succeed, things go horribly wrong. Can the Muppets find their missing, amnesic friend and put the show on in time?moreless
