It was twenty years ago today, the Muppets went to Hollywood to play... Now, Columbia Tri-Star Home Video and Jim Henson Home Entertainment are guaranteed to make families smile with the release of three classic Muppet motion pictures, The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppets Take Manhattan, each available for $14.95 S.R.P. on June 1, 1999.

The Muppet MovieThe ultimate in fun and exciting entertainment for the whole family, created by the legendary and incomparable The Jim Henson Company, the multi award-winning Muppet movie three-some are filled with classic songs, humor, adventure and universal appeal, that can be watched over and over again. The movies include cameos from some of Hollywood's most illustrious stars such as Steve Martin, Bob Hope, Brooke Shields, Mel Brooks, Dom DeLuise, Elliott Gould, Charles Grodin, Joan Rivers, Gregory Hines, Milton Berle, Richard Pryor, and Paul Williams, among others.

The movie that started it all, The Muppet Movie, now celebrating its 20th anniversary, stars the Muppets in a hilarious parody of Hollywood, as Kermit, Miss Piggy and a wacky cast of characters make their way to Tinseltown in search of stardom and bump into everybody who is anybody. The movie features the ever-popular song, "The Rainbow Connection" by Paul Williams. The Muppet Movie garnered numerous awards including a Grammy Award (Best Children's Album), Box Office Magazine/ National Screen Council Blue Ribbon Award, and the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films Best Fantasy Film.

The Great Muppet CaperIn the 1950's-style The Great Muppet Caper, Kermit and his friends set out to apprehend treacherous villains, retrieve priceless jewels and go for that magical happy ending. The Great Muppet Caper, directed by Jim Henson, earned the Best Family Picture Annual Award from the Motion Picture Hall of Fame.

The Muppets give new meaning to the show biz phrase 'the show must go on' in The Muppets Take Manhattan. Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and the entire Muppet gang are Broadway-bound to turn their "Manhattan Melodies" into a major musical hit. The Muppets Take Manhattan received an Academy Award nomination for Best Music and Original Song Score.

A trio of perennial classics that families will want to treasure forever, The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppets Take Manhattan are timed to coincide with the upcoming theatrical release of Muppets From Space, scheduled to open July 30, 1999.
