Gonzo is contacted by his alien family through his breakfast cereal. But when the men in black kidnap him, it's up to Kermit and the gang to rescue Gonzo and help him reunite with his long-lost family.
Sensitive young Toby is deeply saddened when his doted father John, who buried himself in work when widowed, dumps the boy for weeks, including Christmas, on his stern old mother, grim widow Ellen. Beside the stuck-up lady's driver-butler Henry, Toby finds comfort only with a velveteen cuddly rabbit and other animal toys in his father's childhood room, which come to life in his mind when he plays with them. Drama over rabbit and boy stirs crucial emotions in both family and fantasy toy land.Written by

Disregard other reviews. This is a great family film.
I enjoyed this with my 3 youngest children (4,7,10). We all thought this was a great film.
I liked how they intertwined real and cartoon in the movie. Speaking of cartoon, even though about half the film was in cartoon format, I did not loose interest in the film like I do with cartoons.
Great story, wonderful acting, beautiful surroundings, touching message (I saw my 7 yr. old boy crying, had a tear myself, and my 4 yr. old told me "a drop came from my eye"), and a reminder to all of us to remember to use our imagination with our young ones.
Nothing to complain about as far as inappropriate content for children.
