The film is developed around a mysterious murder located in a world where humans live with puppets, who are seen as second class citizens. This is the reason why Phil Phillips, an ex-police puppet, has fallen out of favor and dedicates himself to drinking. However, the murder of his brother will force him to take the world of research seriously again. The members of 'The Happytime Gang', a famous cast known for its children's show in the 1980s, are being massacred one by one. Phil must team up once again with Detective Edwards, but the resentment between them will come to the surface while they try to solve this complicated case. 'Happytime Murders' is directed by Brian Henson ('Muppet Treasure Island').
