Top 10 Best Muppet Movies

Jim Henson's vision was to craft characters that could appeal to all ages, blending witty humor with heartfelt messages, making the experience of watching the Muppets a delightful journey for both children and adults. The Muppets brought to life a vibrant universe where humans and puppets coexist, singing and dancing their way through tales of friendship, love, and adventure, all while teaching valuable life lessons. These colorful characters, from the enthusiastic Kermit the Frog to the ever-glamorous Miss Piggy, have become synonymous with joy and entertainment, fostering a sense of wonder and enchantment in every story they tell.

Over the decades, these charming puppets have danced their way from small TV screens to the silver screen, creating a plethora of memorable movies filled with music, humor, and a touch of magic.
The Top Ten
1 The Muppet Movie

It is the very first Muppet movie created in Muppet history.
Asked for this for Christmas of 2015.
I cannot wait for this.

Definitely the best. The songs are catchy. Sad there is no Bunsen and Beaker hijinks.

That was a really good movie. I really liked it.

2 The Muppets

This reboot of the Muppet franchise was just brilliant. To play off on the fact that the Muppets weren't popular anymore was just genius! This movie has a lot of laughs and a lot of heart. It is so great that people are finally appreciating the Muppets again.

This is the moment that the Muppets are BACK. This is a really touching story with a lot of fun, and it proves that the Muppets will actually never be forgotten. I know it's a new movie. It's not legendary yet, but it really should be No. 1.

Has two of my favorite Muppet songs: Rainbow Connection and Life's a Happy Song. Even though Rainbow Connection is not from here, whatever.

3 The Muppet Christmas Carol

Arguably the best of the countless interpretations of the classic by Dickens, though Zemeckis' recent take on it is not far off. Funny, original, and sweet, Muppet Christmas Carol deserves the number one spot.

Although the original Muppet Movie is great and rightly deserves to be in the top spot, there is something about the Muppet Christmas Carol that is also very charming.

I agree.
True, it is darker but it is just culture telling the story.
I've seen it and I feel lighter than ever.
Warms up my heart.
Kermit and Robin are my favorites.

4 Muppet Treasure Island

Underappreciated entry and a strong contender in the series for the best combination of action, comedy, and heart. It has a great time filling classic roles with the Muppet cast while wisely leaving the central parts to two perfectly cast "human" actors.

Best songs, funniest, best storyline (some Muppet movies can get a bit sidetracked), and Tim Curry! Doesn't get much better than that.

Tim Curry as Long John Silver! Plus, it has one of the best opening scenes in a Muppet movie.

5 The Muppets Take Manhattan

So great! It is such a masterpiece!

6 The Great Muppet Caper

This one is my personal favorite Muppet movie (right next to the very first one). It may be similar to other caper films, but it's still a fun watch.

It was a great original movie but also similar to other caper ones.

7 Muppets from Space

This movie has to be the greatest Muppet movie period. The legendary Dave Goelz's Gonzo pulls off a sincere, heartfelt performance that makes us feel so sad and sorry for him because he's the only one of his kind, but then happy when Gonzo finally meets his real family. Oscar material indeed! Steve Whitmire's Rizzo and Kermit, Bill Barretta's Pepe and Bobo, Frank Oz's Miss Piggy, Jeffrey Tambor's K. Edgar Singer, and Pat Hingle's General Luft were also BRILLIANT in this film!

It is so funny. Animal goes wild. It is just so funny. Miss Piggy gets happy Gonzo is taken away. The whole movie is funny.

8 Muppets Most Wanted

This movie was good, not because it was a "Muppet" movie, but it was good because it was a fantastic film alone.

It's a really good movie. I saw it in theaters. I really liked it.

Really feels like something Jim would make. It's the best.

9 It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie
10 Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird
The Contenders
11 A Muppet Family Christmas

Every December, my family would make some popcorn and put this VHS in. We would always laugh and smile and even had some memorable parts. This truly is a masterpiece.

12 The Muppets' Wizard of Oz

It was a childhood favorite of mine.

13 The Christmas Toy

I have not seen this in ages. In fact, I did not know it was a Muppet movie. Loved it a lot as a child. Kinda like Toy Story and the Velveteen Rabbit combined into one.

14 The Dark Crystal
15 Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas
16 Kermit's Swamp Years
17 Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland
18 Elmo's Magic Cookbook
19 Labyrinth

Why is this so low? This is a classic!

It's a great film with great songs, and DAVID BOWIE is there. More to say?
