The Muppets graduate from college and decide to take their senior revue on the road. They hit the streets of Manhattan trying to sell their show to producers, finally finding one young and idealistic enough to take it. After several mishaps and much confusion, things begin to come together for them in this vintage “Muppety” musical classic.
