5.0 out of 5 stars Kermit the Frog at 12 years-old. September 11, 2002
Format:DVD
I am a huge fan of the Muppets and have been since I was growing up watching THE MUPPET SHOW. I've seen every Muppet movie and mourned on the day Jim Henson died. However, I wasn't sure what to expect with KERMIT'S SWAMP YEARS. I knew it was the Muppets, but it was a direct-to-video release and I haven't seen very many good direct-to-video movies.
Well, I had nothing to worry about because KERMIT'S SWAMP YEARS is a great family movie full of the wit and humor that's so characteristic of The Muppets. The story is a bit cheesy, but much better than most other direct-to-video movies. The editing is great and the soundtrack isn't too bad. The film introduces several new Muppets who are friends from Kermit's youth, including Blotch the bully Bull Frog, Croaker the Frog, Goggles the Toad, Horace the Horsefly, and Pilgrim the Dog.
Kermit returns to the swamp he grew up in and tells the story of the first time he left the swamp when he was 12 years old. Blotch and Goggles get in a fight and are amphibian-knapped by a pet store owner. Kermit and Croaker set out to free their two friends and along the way meet Pilgrim, are chased by a pig, and are almost captured by a mean biology teacher.
The extras on the DVD are a real treat. They include an on set interview with Kermit, a behind the scene featurette, trailers, and a blooper reel. The blooper reel is particluarly hilarious and the behind the scene featurette is hosted by Joe the Armadillo and is really entertaining. Youngsters may not enjoy these extras as much, but older viewers will find them to be a real treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Family Entertainment December 17, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
My husband purchased this video for my 3 year old son on a whim (we both grew up watching the Muppets and thought he might enjoy it) and he absolutely LOVES it. The storyline is easy for younger children to follow, but not so simple that it bores older ones or even parents. The laughs are plentiful for children and adults alike (Jim Henson Productions is great at reaching all generations.)
It has now become one of my son's favorite movies and is pretty much watched on a daily basis. I would highly recommend adding it to your family's collection of movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet movie March 31, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My son is almost four and is obsessed with frogs. He adores this movie. He watches it about 4 times a week and I don't mind because there is not the annoying back ground noises or sappy kiddy music in this video. No blood, no gore, no real violence, no foul language....what more could a mama ask??

4.0 out of 5 stars It is not old style muppets. July 10, 2003
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
However, it is not bad on its own. I am glad they are attempting to keep things going. The guy running Kermit does a good attempt but he is not Jim H.
The story has a simple theme and the villans really didn't interest me but I still watched the movie.
I guess the true critic would be my two year old and she asked for it so much that I had to buy it to keep her quiet! ;-) For some reason she likes the Croaker as she keeps asking for the blue frog!
Also to add to the violence defence. It is not that bad, my girl is rather sensitive to violence and she did not react at all. So it is not that bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kermit's Swamp years, Much better than expected January 6, 2012
By BoBo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am very pleased with this movie. I saw a few negative reviews, so I was not expecting much. What I have seen is a very kid friendly, adorable film that offered a wonderful story line. All the muppet characters were very expressive and had distinct personalities, and the rabbit at the pet store had me in stitches. It's a simple story, but has wonderful morals. The bullfrog and toad relationship was fun to see bloom. And of course, Steve Whitmire as Kermit can't ever be below my expectations. I think he's a great replacement for the wonderful Jim Henson, and he's often under rated. Joey Mazzarino and Bill Barretta were great as Kermit's buddies. I especially liked the bloopers. I wouldn't put this on a par with the other muppet movies, ie The Muppets Christmas Carol, but it is entertaining and made me smile.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ehh..definately lacks a certain charm January 3, 2007
Format:DVD
This movie is very different from any of the other muppet movies I have seen to date, for a number of reasons. Firstly, the muppets had the brilliance to appeal to children and adults at the same time--this movie focuses solely on the first group. There is little of the witty rapport between the characters that really makes the muppets have their zing. Its on level with "Bear in the Big Blue House" except it lacks the sweetness of that show as well, its straddling some middle line with humour that its quite un-muppet like (the mooning--which will probably get laughs from the right audience, but it seems demeening and below what muppets should do) very juvenile. The plot is only so-so. the songs, none of them really stand out except for the Me First and the Gimme Gimmes cover of the Rainbow connection, which wasn't even original to the movie.

What I did enjoy were many of the new characters introduced. Croaker and Goggles are very enjoyable in terms of muppet aesthetics, they really fit in, but in new ways. Blotch is a fun character but I didn't enjoy is character design as much he seemed a little too stiff in the body, the facial close ups though really highlighted the innovantions they have made with allowing the puppeteers more control of over the face--such as the eyes and the eyelids. Pilgrim--eeeeh, the puppet design was sort of weak I though, she looked too much like a puppet trying to look real, they should have gone one way or the other.

I did not enjoy the disection scene (uh didn't we already go there in ET? maybe they should have found a way to pay homage to that) Originally when the Mister Doctor guy was collecting frogs I was thinking Steinbeck's character Doc in Cannery Row (which is similar but not quite what they had).
