Kermit, Gonzo, and Fozzie are reporters who travel to Britain to interview a rich victim of jewel thieves and help her along with her secretary, Miss Piggy.
Kermit's reporter role and outfit hearken back to his on-the-spot interviews of fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters on Sesame Street (1969).
Fozzie: Sha-ame on you! I thought we were in this thing together. I'm just as scared as you are, but this has to be done! We don't want the bad guys to win. We gotta do this,. for- for- for justice! For freedom! For honesty!
Scooter: Boy, do I feel ashamed.
When Kermit is dancing on the bed during the "Stepping Out with A Star" song, the shadow of the puppeteer's arm is visible on the wall behind him.
At the opening of the film, Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo are riding in a hot air balloon and commenting on the opening credits. Sample dialog: "Wow, a lot of people worked on this movie.", "Nobody reads those names anyway, do they?", "Sure. They all have families."
