Synopsis:
The second cinematic outing of Jim Henson's endearing Muppets. Here, Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear and The Great Gonzo are journalists in England investigating the theft of a gem known as the Baseball Diamond, which belonged to fashion maven Lady Holiday. But when Kermit meets would-be model Miss Piggy, he not only mistakes her for Lady Holiday, he begins falling in love with her! However Lady Holiday's crafty brother Nicky is also wooing the sexy swine -- in order to frame her for the jewel theft. Can the wacky Muppets save Miss Piggy? And what will come of Miss Piggy and Kermit's inter-species relationship?
