Muppet Studios was a central location in the film The Muppets. The studio is located in Hollywood, just off of Hollywood Boulevard. Walter, Gary, and Mary visit the now-decrepit studio on their vacation. The studio tour guide (Alan Arkin) says that Muppet Studios is "where dreams can come true." Tours (originally 50¢) are now $1.50 and poorly attended (the only other attendees are a group of retarded Japanese tourists who think they are on a Universal Studios tour).
A geological survey (along with Tex Richman's sense of smell) says there is oil under the studio. Richman tries to get ownership of the studio under the guise of turning the studio into a Muppet museum.
The Muppets reunite in an attempt to raise the money needed to save the studio.
Signs and locations within the studio include:
- Dr. Honeydew's Laboratory of Fun
- Original Electroic Mayhem Bus
- Electrical Dept.
- Fozzie's Joke Room
- Gonzo's Cannonade
- Office of Kermit the Frog
- The Muppet Theater
- Rowlf's Music Parlor
- Wire & Rope Room
In the film's opening sequence, Walter receives the Muppet Studios Official Guide book for his birthday. The "Muppet Studios Tour Map" in the book shows such additional locations as:
- Art Alley
- Beaker's World
- Buffoon Lagoon
- Fozzie's Joke Corner
- Miss Piggy's Conture Tour
- Miss Piggy Plaza
