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
When The Muppets
plead Tex Richman to return their theatre, the establishing shot shows the Bank of America Center in Los Angeles as the headquarters for "Richman Oil". However, the same building can be repeatedly seen outside the office's windows when Richman performs his song. The scene was actually shot inside one of the towers of the nearby City National Plaza.
