That's a frog. Bears wear hats.
The Great Muppet Caper is great family movie. They're are very good songs in this movie and it's just as witty as the others. Features several cameos (John Cleese, Oscar the Grouch). I love the seen where the Muppets are going over the check list of items. Priceless. One of the best.

Trivia

Nicky Holiday (Charles Grodin) is connected with a running gag of wearing flowered socks, the first reference being when they are delivered to his office and the second and third being quick shots of his ankle during the supper club scene, and later during the heist of the baseball diamond. During the fashion show, the only scene without a shot of his flowered socks, he is wearing a matching flowered bow tie and handkerchief.


Quotes

Kermit: Hurry up, Gonzo. There's gotta be a picture of somebody taking Lady Holiday's necklace.
Gonzo: Well, I don't know. I still think that pig took it.
Kermit: Oh, she wouldn't steal.
Gonzo: Why not? She lied.
Kermit: That's two different things. Besides, she couldn't have stolen the...


Goofs

During the opening musical scene on the city street, all of the cars that are driving around are missing their windshields.


Crazy Credits

In a parody of the MGM Studios logo, this film opens with Animal roaring like the MGM lion. He then proceeds to partly devour the surrounding title card, but turns around and sees a hot air balloon overhead.


Alternate Versions

Among the audio changes on the 1993 video release (and carried over to every video release since, including DVD and Blu-ray): -- At the beginning of "Happiness Hotel," a trombone gliss is heard after Pops's first line. -- Also, during "Happiness Hotel," after Zoot mentions Animal's being upset about missing a Rembrandt exhibit, Animal shouts "Renoir!" -- The song "Night Life" has lyrics; it was instrumental before. -- The music during the Muppets' "checklist" (whoopie cushion, rubber raft, bag of chickens, etc.) is different. In the 1993 version, it's more comical-sounding. -- When Miss Piggy crashes through the window and leaps off the motorcycle, her trademark "Hi-yaaah!!!" is removed.
