This movie shines as an example of a man who refuses to be a racist and who retains a positive attitude despite the curve balls life throws his way.

I had the pleasure of revisiting my childhood and enjoying this flick at a local theatre filled with at least a hundred preschool and elementary age children. Their laughter was indicative that the humor of Miss Piggy and Kermit is [...]
