The Sesame Street set was recreated on the EUE/Screen Gems sound stage rather than using the original. The set was built fully raised so that the puppeteers could stand while performing rather than crouching below "street level." See more »
When Huxley is pleading with Bug, trying to convince him that he will change, he is sticking his hand through the top of the basket, but in order to allow for this, the basket would have had to come on to Huxley from underneath him, yet Elmo catapulted it onto Huxley from the top, so therefore, he would have been unable to move his hands, especially considering the fact that Huxley had both of his arms down when the basket landed on him.

A decent film for kids, and those kids at heart who miss the street
Previous reviewers have been right in stating that this film pales in comparison to 1985's "Follow That Bird", but then again it is hard to beat perfection! Anyway this movie definitely has more of an appeal for kids than it does for adults (although there is some decidedly adult references that'll fly over kids heads slipped in for good measure). Anyone who feels nostalgic for the street and who wants to see how the adult actors and muppet characters are doin these days should also be interested. *lol* There are also some good celebrity cameos thrown in, although not nearly as many as there were in "Follow That Bird".The bottom line is that this is a decent movie, and i'd definitely reccomend renting it or watching it on tv.
