STARZ! (Sun., Aug. 18, 6:30 p.m. ET)

"I'm having palpitations here.... I feel so sick and nauseous." That Woody Allen-esque whining comes from Goggles, a bespectacled toad who gets the lion's share of the laughs in this new Muppet movie, which premieres on STARZ! before the video goes on sale early next month.

The serviceable plot has Kermit the Frog and his pal Croaker striving to save Goggles and Blotch, a bullying bullfrog, from dissection in a high school biology lab. Unfortunately the teacher (human actor John Hostetter) chews the scenery.

Bottom Line: Only the toad is tops
