Two rarely seen television specials celebrate the Muppets’s love affair with the movies. In The Muppets Go Hollywood (1979, 49 mins.), Kermit throws a party to celebrate the premiere of The Muppet Movie, and Dick van Dyke and Rita Moreno interview the celebrities and Muppet guests. In The Muppets Go to the Movies (1981, 49 mins.), Lily Tomlin and Dudley Moore join Kermit in a special filled with such movie spoofs as “The Fool of the Roman Empire” and “Invasion of the Unpleasant Things from Outer Space."
