Continuity mistake: In the scene just before Miss Piggy and Eileen get fired from the department store, Miss Piggy is watching Kermit and Jenny hug. She then bends a metal pole in half and starts hitting a barrel with it. When she first starts hitting it, the pole she is hitting it with is very thick(much thicker than the one she bent in half), is a different colour and not bent in any way. In the next shot the pole is thinner,longer and looks like the one she originally had, but it is only bent at the top whereas Miss Piggy bent it in the middle. In the next shot of her after that, the pole is now thicker (but not as thick as the first one), is not bent and the colour has changed again. Also if you look around the area where Miss Piggy is, there is only one type of pole lying around, so where did the other two come from? (00:30:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When Kermit is at Sardi's (the restaurant), when the waiter asks to take his coat, Kermit says, "No!" Look right beside Kermit. You can see the top of Jim Henson's head for most of the shot. Also, when Kermit rises from beneath the table to put up his picture, you can see Jim Henson's head pop up as the camera pans up.


Visible crew/equipment: When they go to the first Hollywood producer at the beginning of "You Can't Take No For An Answer", look in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. By Dr. Teeth, you can see the puppeteer's head.

Visible crew/equipment: When the camera pans into the kitchen as Rizzo says, "Lazy rat? Okay, have it your way," the camera is reflected on the toaster. (00:25:40)


Bill the Frog: How about this? Ocean Breeze Soap: It's just like taking an ocean cruise, only there's no boat and you don't actually go anywhere.
