Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • A deleted subplot followed Statler & Waldorf who turned up at various points in the movie to comment (and heckle) the main action.
  • Jim Henson was determined to use the larger budget of a feature film to push the technological limits and capabilities of puppetry. One of the most difficult feats (and one that appears deceptively easy on-screen) was making Kermit ride a bicycle.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Fozzie and Kermit first stop in front of the church they are facing one way, after they fall asleep they are facing another.
  • 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.
