Product Description

KERMIT's his true story. Warts and all!

From Amazon.co.uk

Kermit's Swamp Years is the full-length version of a one-off American cable television feature that sets out to show us the formative years of the future host of The Muppet Show. Its focus is a childhood adventure involving Kermit and his two best friends: a somewhat delinquent frog called Croaker, and a tremulous toad named Goggles. Though the film was, obviously, made some years after the death of Kermit's creator, Jim Henson, the wit, spirit and joy that informed Sesame Street and The Muppet Show are all discernible here. Henson's resounding genius was to understand that children can tell when they are being treated like idiots, and that they don't much care for it, which is why The Muppet Show is still enjoyed by adults who grew up with the programme, and why none of those adults will object to sitting through Kermit's Swamp Years with their children.

On the DVD: Kermit's Swamp Years is presented anamorphically in 1.78:1 widescreen. Extras include behind-the-scenes footage, which reinforces the fact that the human magic necessary to animate the muppet characters is far more interesting and impressive than any amount of the computer wizardry now favoured by most similar films. There are also some quite well-done muppet pastiches of the common DVD special features, interviews with, and commentary from, the stars, and a collection of bloopers and out-takes. --Andrew Mueller --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I got the chance to watch this film with a work colleague one quiet night. It had us nearly crying with laughter. The characters are excellent and it is extremely well written with many in-jokes concerning kermits later years (experience with a pig) and crossing paths with a young jim henson.
The extras on the dvd are excellent. Bloopers, a behind the scenes documentary hosted by an armadillo, interviews... It's all there.
Overall for me it is a classic one which i am sure i will never cease to find funny.... Hope you like it just as much.....you should.

Kermit's Swamp Years, is based on Kermit's life before e was everyones favourite frog.
Due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time, two of Kermit's friends get captured and sold to an evil science teacher who wants to well do what science teachers do to frogs.
There are some great features on the DVD, my favourite being the blooper reel accompanied by a heavy metal version of Kermit's classic song Rainbow Connection.
A great DVD

if you want a film for young children then this is the film for you. it keeps them quiet for ages.
If your children love stuart little 1 + 2 then try this they will find this truly exciting as the stuart little films.

Joshua, our 2-year old started watching this movie about a month ago and the first week he wanted to see it twice a day and now thankfully just once...last week at grandma we couldn't get it to work and he got really upset! He just loves Kermit, Goggles and Croacker, the dog, the red truck and Vicky the snake and every now and then he cracks up at a joke. He went from a Polar Express addiction to a Kermit's Swamp Years addiction - overnight!

I got to admit I love the Muppets so it wasn't a hard decision to add this film to my collection. The film is pretty much what you expect really with music and laughter and you get to meet a young Kermit and friends such as Goggles and croaker this film is a must for Jim Henson fans.
