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.

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.

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??

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.

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.

As with most things Muppets this can be taken on many levels with lots of gags aimed primarily at adults while still being very entertaining for the little ones. It has rapidly become one of my 18 month old's favorite movies to watch and gives us a welcome break from Elmo/Sesame Street. The outtakes at the end of the movie and in the special features also give some "behind the scenes" insight into what goes into a muppet production. Pilgrim the dog is also the most lifelike yet expressive muppet I have ever seen.
In many ways this movie is a muppets "Stand by me", a coming of age movie for Kermit and his buddies that isn't always pretty. If you are easily offended stay away, but otherwise step back and enjoy this little romp that gives us some insight into why Kermit became the frog he is today...
To respond to the other posters who object to the "violence", it has to be said that the bully bullfrog ultimately learns the value of friendship, helping others and self-sacrifice. Most kids will meet real life bullies soone enough, and I hope they can learn something from how these frogs deal with that situation. The dissection-happy ninth grade biology professor also soon learns the error of his ways.
