With Kermit blamed for the theft of England's Crown Jewels and other priceless treasures, Constantine takes over leadership of the Muppets, strikes a deal with international tour promoter Dominic Badguy (it's French), played by Ricky Gervais, and gradually raises the suspicions of the other Muppets as he formulates his latest evil plan.
