    Hmm, it's strange that I've never seen a thread for this, because it's a question muppet fans ask each other a lot, so thanks for making the thread. My all time favorite is The Great Muppet Caper (1981), because of all the awesome songs, fourth wall jokes, all the action and it's satire, one of the best climaxes in the universe, and so much more, it really has it all.
    Comedy
    Action
    Suspense
    Romance
    ECT. ECT.

    It truly is perfect, my only complain is the 4-minute Piggy's Fantasy scene, that's it!

    Great movie for sure! I love it. Great cameos too. Charles grodin did a great job. Bike scene is fascinating. Took so much work for the performers

    I haven't seen Muppets Most Wanted yet and it's been awhile since I've seen some of the others in completion. But, my favorite for the time being is The Great Muppet Caper. I had so much fun watching it. :) I loved all the characters, especially the villain. The Piggy Fantasy truthfully may have been a little too long but, I was just so fascinated by the mechanics of it all, just like the bicycling scene.

    The Muppet Movie would be second since it has the greatest soundtrack in my opinion. And The Muppets would probably be third because it reignited my interest in the Muppets.

    For me, it's a two-way tie between "The Great Muppet Caper" and "Muppets Most Wanted"!!

    Out of the original three - The Muppet Movie. Out of the newer movies, Muppets Most Wanted at the moment... but I have only watched it once. I also like Muppets Christmas Carol a lot, but it was the first Muppet film I owned on VHS anyhow.

    My favorite Muppet movie is The Muppet Movie. It has a simple, yet heartwarming storyline that strangely mirrors Jim Henson's own life from escaping the advertising business and attempting to break into show business. There are memorable songs, great use of cameos, and a zany use of classic Muppet humor.

    Muppets Take Manhattan is definitely my favorite Muppet movie, with The Muppet Movie being a close second, and Muppets Most Wanted ending the top 3.

    Hmm, I think I'm settling on the 1979 Muppet Movie, because it (well, approximately;)) tells the timeless story of how the muppet gang met and got together to put on a movie.:) What I also love about this movie is the amount of breaking-the-fourth-wall humor, catchy songs, and good, old-fashioned muppetiness!:fanatic:

    I think my other favorite has got to be The Muppets (2011), because it has such a nostalgic feel to it and was very muppety as well. I am also touched that this film has brought a whole new generation of muppet fans, young and old. And it's all thanks to Jason Segel and the world's biggest muppet fan.:fanatic:

    My favorite Muppet movies would have to be either Muppets Most Wanted or The Muppet Movie (1979). TMM had a wonderful cast, the humor was sharp and witty, every cameo worked really well, all of the characters fit into it very well and had backstories that were very fitting. And the songs were also great. I can't tell you which song from the movie is my favorite, because I love all of them so much. Paul Williams did a perfect job of writing the songs and capturing the essence of the tone of the film, the characters and the emotions of each scene.
    But, as great as the MM songs are, The Muppets Most Wanted songs are complete perfection. You can't get any better than "Something So Right", you can't get any catchier or more Muppety than "We're Doing a Sequel". Music aside, MMW was a really funny movie. I loved all the human cast members in it so much and Constantine is literally the best character to ever appear in a movie. Plus, the writers really made that overused evil doppelganger story work.
