Did You Know?
HIDDEN MICKEY: At the end of the film as the camera tilts towards the sky showing the fireworks, three of the explosions are in the shape of Mickey Mouse's iconic head. This is likely due to The Muppets
franchise being owned by Disney. The exterior location used for the Muppet Theatre is the El Capitan theater in Hollywood, which is operated by The Walt Disney
Company; the Muppets' Hollywood Walk of Fame star is also in front of it. It is also next to Jimmy Kimmel Live!
(2003)'s theatre - a show on ABC, owned by Disney. See more
During the "Me Party" scene, Mary (Amy Adams
) sits at a table, tears a roll in half, and puts a fork through each piece before making them "dance" like legs. When she stands up a moment later, the silverware is seen lying on the table, without the pieces of roll. See more
...and then, when he thought they were alone, he said, "There's oil under this theater, see! I'm gonna tear it to the ground, see! Sweet, sweet oil, see!"
People still talk like that?
Maybe that's just how he sounded in my head.
The credits feature the cameo celebrities singing "Mahna Mahna" with their Muppet co-stars. See more
