Powers and abilities
Wishes the Muppets best of luck in Hollywood before he flees with Doc Hopper and his henchmen to escape from an enlarged Animal.
Max is the secondary antagonist in . He was portrayed by The Muppet Movie Austin Pendleton.
It is Max, while supervising the construction of the latest
Doc Hopper's French Fried Frog Legs, who first spots the talented Kermit the Frog, then on a collision course with a steamroller. The eager Max brings the frog to Doc Hopper's attention as a likely spokescharacter, anxious for a reward.
Gradually Max grows aware of the realities of the fried frog leg business, which leaves millions of frogs on crutches and Kermit's moral stand brings about a crisis of conscience. Max's full turn-around is revealed when he sneaks away to warn Kermit and, during the final standoff, admits to Doc that he's had enough. He gives off a gleeful expression, while still fleeing an oversized
Animal, over the successful foiling of Doc and his goons.
