I just finished a refresher marathon of all the Muppet films, except "Most Wanted" since that's not out on DVD/BD yet (but I saw it in theaters).
So I figure what the heck, let's rank the films. Me personally I'm not including any of the numerous TV specials, TV movies, direct-to-video endeavors, etc. Just the theatrical releases.
Here's my ranking:
1) The Great Muppet Caper (1981)
2) The Muppet Movie (1979)
3) The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
4) The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984)
5) The Muppets (2011)
6) Muppets Most Wanted (2014)
7) Muppet Treasure Island (1996)
8) Muppets from Space (1999)
The 2011 sequel almost beats out Manhattan, but a severe lack of Rizzo in 2011 made me think twice.
What about you guys? Any Muppet fans want to weigh in with their favorites?
