    I can see putting The Muppet Movie first. The story isn’t as much my taste, but the bicycle scene alone was sheer brilliance. I’m surprised you’d rank The Great Muppet Caper third though. There are so many funny parts, and I love the inclusion of the Electric Mayhem. “Man, I don’t have no other pants.” Maybe it’s time you give it another watch.

      Maybe so. Admittedly, it’s been many years since I watched it. If nothing else, the other two seem more iconic to me. The Muppet Movie for obvious reasons, but The Muppets Take Manhattan because it created the concept of Muppet Babies and ends with Kermit and Piggy (probably) getting married.

        Absolutely. They’re both staples in the canon. I like Caper because it’s like Toy Story in the way it had more veiled adult jokes. I think it feels more like Jim’s initial intention of making Muppets for all ages, rather than just family friendly kid entertainment.
