The original concept was based upon the song "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday" which Gonzo sings in The Muppet Movie (1979). Muppeteer Dave Goelz recorded a new version of the song (in 4/4 time) but it was not used in the film. It was included on the soundtrack album, however. See more »
One of the "R U There" messages is shown in Hollywood, California. Later, a globe showing the spiral formation of the messages has the western most portion of the spiral east of California. See more »

Gee, that's disappointing.
Perfect. Somebody knock and see if Barbie's home.

Kaleidoscopic images of various Muppet characters appearing in the film are the backdrop to the credits. In order of appearance, they are the Swedish Chef, Kermit the Frog, Beaker, Clifford, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Animal, Fozzie Bear, Pepe the King Prawn, Carter, Bobo the Bear, Statler and Waldorf, and Rizzo the Rat.

Gonzo is tired of being a "whatever." But when his breakfast cereal tells him to "WATCH THE SKY," then asks him "R U THERE," his Muppet friends start to worry about his mental state. Meanwhile, the message also catches the eye of Ed, the head of a government intelligence agency looking for aliens. Cute movie has an excellent beginning song (they all live in a house now?) and goes nowhere but down in boredom. Cute parodies of CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND and INDEPENDENCE DAY can't avoid the annoying 70s sound track that IS NOT SUNG BY THE MUPPETS!! Two thumbs up for Animal and Pepe, two thumbs down for not making a more creative movie.
