Kermit's Swamp Years
Kermit's Swamp Years is a 2002 direct-to-video film, directed by David Gumpel, featuring Jim Henson's Muppets, including a 12-year-old Kermit and best friends Goggles and Croaker, who travel outside their homes in the swamps of the Deep South to do something extraordinary with their lives. The film, which tells the story of Kermit the Frog's early life, is a prequel to The Muppet Movie.

- Kermit: I hope I never see another one of those again as long as I live.
- Goggles, Turtle #1: Oh... I get it! Dissection must be some kind of full body massage.
- Goggles, Turtle #1: [reading a copy of this movie's script] Wait a minute... EVERY scene's a nude scene!
