Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The song "Never Before, Never Again" was originally sung by a professional singer dubbing in for Frank Oz (as Miss Piggy), but the producers did not think her rendition was as funny as Frank Oz's version.
  • This was the last movie to feature famed ventriloquist Edgar Bergen and his wooden sidekick, Charlie McCarthy (II); Bergen died shortly after his scene was shot in 1978. It held particular meaning for Jim Henson, who cited, on many occasions, how Bergen and McCarthy were the major reasons he took an interest in puppetry. A dedication to Bergen is included in the end credits.
  • Jim Henson spent an entire day in a 50-gallon steel drum submerged in a pond for the opening scene of Kermit in the swamp.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Fozzie gets Kermit's "Dragonfly Ripple" cone from the ice cream man, it's a shade of bright lime green. When he gives it to Kermit, it's gray. After the group spots Gonzo floating with the balloons the cone is green again, but a different shade.
