Trivia

The sequences where Fozzie, Kermit, Miss Piggy, and the gang cruise around in that old Studebaker seem effortless, but they were a logistical nightmare. Kermit and Piggy each required a puppeteer, Fozzie required two, they all needed monitors, and none of them could appear in the shot. So four men squeezed underneath the dashboard of the car with their video monitors to accomplish this movie magic, but the engineering didn't stop there. James Frawley told SF Gate that they also "had a little person in the back of the car, steering and driving. We had a video camera on the nose of the car so he could see where he was going."


Quotes

Statler: I'm Statler.
Waldorf: I'm Waldorf. We're here to heckle "The Muppet Movie".
Gate Guard: Gentlemen, that's straight ahead. Private screening room D.
Statler: Private screening?
Waldorf: Yeah, they're afraid to show it in public.


Goofs

Immediately after Kermit the Frog and Fozzie's first encounter with Doc Hopper, as Fozzie is driving away, Doc Hopper speaks several lines ("Hey, that's my car!", "I'm offering you money!"), but his mouth does not move.


Crazy Credits

Over first few credits, Sweetums bursts out of the screen, followed by many Muppet gags


Alternate Versions

The theatrical and Magnetic Video releases show the Associated Film Distribution logo and a Rated G MPAA rating screen after the credits. But on further releases, the AFD logo is plastered by the Jim Henson Pictures logo, and the rating screen is edited out.
