Along with Dudley Moore and Lily Tomlin, the Muppets spoof classic movies such as "The Wizard of Oz," "Casablanca," and even artsy Ingmar Bergman movies. They also promote their then-upcoming film "The Great Muppet Caper."
Dudley Moore (as Caesar):
Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears.
Random Roman muppet: What'd you do with the ones we lent you last week?
Dudley Moore (as Caesar): I stuck them on my chariot.
Random Roman muppet: Why?
Dudley Moore (as Caesar): Because they're chariot-ears.
Dudley Moore (as Caesar): Bring me my piano.
Random Roman muppet: Bring Great Caesar's piano!
Dudley Moore (as Caesar): Do you know why they call me "Great Caesar"?
Dudley Moore (as Caesar): ...
There's a writing credit for "Gummo".
The final scene during the End Credits exists in two different versions. The UK produced version ends with Kermit the Frog opening the theatre doors and various other Muppets walking outside. Janice and Floyd walk out and Floyd asks her if she wants to go for "Fish and Chips" to which she nods. Following them is Gonzo who spots the arrival of a bus. Then, Fozzie comes out and wonders if the 'hot cross bunny' joke was "too hip" for the audience, then Miss. Piggy walks out saying the joke "was too SOMETHING" for the audience. As Kermit locks up, Miss. Piggy asking Kermit if he'll walk her to "The Tube" (subway) to which he obliges, then she says "Race you!" and they run off screen and then we see Dudley Moore and Lily Tomlin struggling to get out of the now locked theatre. In the US version, we see Janice and Floyd leave but this time without the 'Fish and chips' line, also we now see Gonzo leave without speaking along with Lew Zealand, also remaining silent as he leaves. We still get Fozzie's line about 'hot cross bunnies' and Miss. Piggy's response like before. However, since the term "tube" is not a common term for a subway in America, this is replaced with Miss. Piggy asking Kermit the Frog why he had penguins appear in her 'Heatwave' number, to which he replies "They made you look good!" Miss. Piggy ponders Kermit's response and they walk off screen and then we see the same scene of Dudley and Lily trying to get out.
