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. See more »

In a parody of the MGM Studios logo, this film opens with Animal roaring like the MGM lion. He then proceeds to devour the surrounding title card. See more »
This film is definitely a comic masterpiece. A great improvement over the earlier MUPPET MOVIE, which seemed more like a faltering first step into feature film techniques; this has a strong plot, bright characters and keen timing. It also has great support from the comic greatness of John Cleese, Joan Sanderson, Jack Warden, Robert Morley and Peter Falk.
Diana Rigg and Charles Grodin (in his best movie) manage to hold the central human characters together, up against the bright lunacy of the Muppets. Lady Holliday's expression on seeing Miss Piggy enter in her swimsuit is worth the price of admission alone!
PS: My mum just loves the bit where Kermit does up his zipper!
