Kermit and his newfound friends trek across America to find success in Hollywood, but a frog legs merchant is after Kermit.
For the scene where Kermit has a desert revelation, James Frawley wanted to include a shooting star in the night sky. So the crew attached a Christmas tree light to a wire on the soundstage, and when they got the signal, shot it across the set.
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.
When Fozzie and Kermit the Frog are about to confront Gonzo in his truck, Kermit says, "Fozzie look at that funny little truck!" in which Fozzie responds, "Yeah...cute, huh?" But in the car's rear view mirror, we can clearly see that Fozzie's mouth remains closed.
After the last credit, Animal is shouting,"GO HOME! GO HOME!", then he gets sleepy, "Bye-bye..." then falls asleep.
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.
