It's Kermie, What's not to love? Kermit decides to leave the swamp and has adventures in a pet shop as well as avoiding being disected in a school science lab. It's a cute lil show with humor you and your child can enjoy, like the frog with a tire track across his middle for 1/2 the show. Not nearly as bad as some of the shows being a parent requires you to sit through! :)

Kermit the Frog at 12 years-old.

"I am a huge fan of the Muppets and have been since I was growing up watching THE MUPPET SHOW. I've seen every Muppet movie and mourned on the day Jim Henson died. However, I wasn't sure what to expect with KERMIT'S SWAMP YEARS. I knew it was the Muppets, but it was a direct-to-video release and I haven't seen very many good direct-to-video movies.Well, I had nothing to worry about because KERMIT'S SWAMP YEARS is a great family movie full of the wit and humor that's so characteristic of The Muppets. The story is a bit cheesy, but much better than most other direct-to-video movies. The editing is great and the soundtrack isn't too bad. The film introduces several new Muppets who are friends from Kermit's youth, including Blotch the bully Bull Frog, Croaker the Frog, Goggles the Toad, Horace the Horsefly, and Pilgrim the Dog.Kermit returns to the swamp he grew up in and tells the story of the first time he left the swamp when he was 12 years old. Blotch and Goggles get in a fight and are amphibian-knapped by a pet store owner. Kermit and Croaker set out to free their two friends and along the way meet Pilgrim, are chased by a pig, and are almost captured by a mean biology teacher.The extras on the DVD are a real treat. They include an on set interview with Kermit, a behind the scene featurette, trailers, and a blooper reel. The blooper reel is particluarly hilarious and the behind the scene featurette is hosted by Joe the Armadillo and is really entertaining. Youngsters may not enjoy these extras as much, but older viewers will find them to be a real treat."

"My wife and I picked the DVD version up for our almost two year old son. We liked the trailers shown on the Bear in the Big Blue House series we have and thought our son would enjoy Kermit. BIG mistake. Near the end of the movie one of Kermit's frog pals is strapped down on a table for disection and has a near rabid Biology teacher holding a razor sharp scalpel to it's throat while it squirms in horror. I all but yanked the power cord on the TV to prevent my son from seeing anything further. I am very glad we monitor what our son watches. Who would have expected such a stupid move on the part of the Henson group? Parents beware. I like many Henson products. This one is banned from our library.Andy's Dad"

"My husband purchased this video for my 3 year old son on a whim (we both grew up watching the Muppets and thought he might enjoy it) and he absolutely LOVES it. The storyline is easy for younger children to follow, but not so simple that it bores older ones or even parents. The laughs are plentiful for children and adults alike (Jim Henson Productions is great at reaching all generations.)It has now become one of my son's favorite movies and is pretty much watched on a daily basis. I would highly recommend adding it to your family's collection of movies."
