In 'The Muppets' 2011 movie, everyone's favorite, most interesting Muppets characters are brought together (years after 'The Muppet Show' last aired) to try and save their beloved Muppet Studios. After being out of the spotlight for so long, it seems the Muppets just aren't as famous as they used to be. One studio executive agrees to let the group put on a show to try and save their theater from the clutches of an evil oil magnate who wants to tear it down. With the help of new Muppet, Walter, and his friends, Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams), they set out to raise the $10 million they need to save the studio.

'The Muppets' opened over the Thanksgiving 2011 holiday with a strong showing at the holiday box office. By year's end, the movie had grossed nearly $77 million in U.S. theaters and another $7 million worldwide. Definitely a hit with moviegoers, young and old!

    Animal: "No drums! No drums! Jack Black said no drums!"

    Poor Animal. He's trying so, so hard to control his anger issues - and not playing drums again is part of the deal (per Jack Black, his guru). Something tells me that Animal won't be able to hold off playing forever...

    Kermit: "Let's just start at the bottom and work our way back up to the top!"

    Kermit, ever the optimist, tries to rally the troops to give everything they have to this show, to save their theater and prove, once and for all, that they ARE adored.

    Fozzie Bear: "Check it out: Fart shoes!"

    Yep, this is classic Muppets humor. Fozzie Bear is one of the most adorable Muppets characters, and the goofiest.

    Kid (to Kermit): "Are you one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?"
    Kermit: "Yes...yes, I am."

    Yeah, it's been a while: Time for 'The Muppets' to mount a comeback! What kind of kid doesn't know who Kermit the Frog is, anyway?! And yes, that is Manny from 'Modern Family' - one of many awesome star cameos in the movie.

    Mary (to Gary): "Are you a man, or a Muppet?"

    Mary poses this question to Gary because, quite frankly, she's getting sick and tired of Gary constantly putting the Muppets (and his brother, Walter) ahead of her on the priority list. The question leads to a great musical number. Oh and Gary's answer, he's a "muppet of a man!"
