Box set containing two popular children's movies. In 'The Muppet Movie' (1979) Kermit the Frog (voice of Jim Henson) leaves his swamp and heads for the big lights of Hollywood to fulfil his dream of becoming a star. Along the way, he becomes involved with the usual Muppet cast, including the dazzling Miss Piggy (Frank Oz), the charming Fozzie Bear (Richard Hunt) and Gonzo the Great (David Goelz), and encounters such celebrities as Orson Welles, Steve Martin and Bob Hope. 'Muppets' Wizard of Oz' (2005) is a contemporary version of the classic movie based on the novel by L. Frank Baum. Dorothy Gale (Ashanti) is a teenager with dreams of showbiz that seem far from coming true in the Kansas trailer park where she lives. When she's transported to the magical land of Oz, she and her sidekick, Toto (Pepe the King Prawn - voice of Bill Barretta), join forces with the Scarecrow (Kermit the Frog - voice of Steve Whitmire), the Tin Thing (Gonzo - voice of Dave Goelz) and the Lion (Fozzie Bear - voice of Erik Jacobson) to fight the Wicked Witch of the West (Miss Piggy - voice of Erik Jacobson) and find the wizard who might make her a star.
