As with The Muppet Movie (1979), this can be read as an allegory of Jim Henson's career. Like his creator, Kermit gains local popularity performing during his college years, decides to try his luck in New York City, struggles, takes an unlikely detour into the world of advertising, then gets his big break.

Kermit should have known Miss Piggy wasn't going far - the train she leaves on is the Erie Lackawanna Railroad which was a local railroad servicing only New Jersey. Erie Lackawanna shut down in 1983 when it was taken over by New Jersey Transit Corporation. See more »
After the final credits roll, we can hear Animal say "Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Bye Bye...Hasta Luego". See more »
The VHS and Family Channel versions have Animal's slow growls of "BAAAAAAD MAAAAAAN" (at Dabney Coleman) dubbed out, though his repeated shouts of the phrase can be heard at the end of the scene. However, the growls are present on the DVD version. See more »
Jim Henson's Muppets were a favorite of mine since childhood. This film makes me feel like a kid again. Okay, the Muppets are back with Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog and their friends. The premise is that they are trying to get on Broadway in a musical show in where else but New York City. You will see cameos by the then New York City Mayor Ed Koch. Anyway, the film turns 25 this year and I hope the kids of today will learn to appreciate the lightheartedness of the Muppets Gang. The problem with the show is Kermit goes missing and the gang has to find him in New York City. It's worth watching for kids and even sentimental adults like myself.
