Directed by: Jim Henson

Starring: Dave Goelz, Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson

Genres: Comedy, Family, Musical

Corrected entry: If Lady Holiday and Nicky are supposed to be brother and sister, then why does she have an English accent and he doesn't?

Correction: Is it not possible that Lady Holiday has lived in England for some time and Nicky hasn't, therefore maybe Lady Holiday has picked up the accent while she's been there? Many people may come from their homeland, go live somewhere else for several months or years at a time and then pick up the land's accent. I myself have come from Australia with a rough accent and now having lived in Singapore, have changed my accent to something somewhat more proper.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film the plane they are initially flying on is a typical passenger plane, but when the Muppets are thrown out, the plane is one used for skydiving.

Question: How in the world were Nicky and the models able to slip past the guard dogs?


Answer: As shown in Nicky's office, him and the models are professionals, judging from the different tools that they are using and a map of the Mallory Gallery. All they would have to do is watch and wait for the dogs to leave a specific area, and they would be able to get in because of how quiet they were while Kermit and friends were caught because of how much noise Animal made while trying to eat through the bars.
