The Muppet Movie

Other mistake: Whenever Fozzie is driving the Studebaker, the movements of the car don't correspond to the way he moves the steering wheel (he tends to crank it back and forth a lot).

Other mistake: In the fight scene right after Miss Piggy blasts the man through the wall, she kicks another man. If you look closely, he goes back from the kick a little, then just stands there and adjusts his hat.

Other mistake: As Fozzie corrects the car to keep from crashing, watch the two of them in the long shot by the church. They are bouncing very rapidly as they come to a stop, suggesting the film was sped up. Also, Fozzie looks to the left of the steering wheel to shift gears, rather than the right, where the shifter would be, on the transmission hump.

Movie Nut

Other mistake: When Fozzie backs his car into Hopper's and then leaves, the front of the Caddy shows no damage, despite the severity of the hit. Not even a speck of paint on the bumper.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when Kermit confronts Doc Hopper he comes walking out of the bar. If you look at the top of Kermit's legs when he walks out, two pair of hands can be seen moving the legs.

Question: In the middle of Kermit and Fozzy's song "Movin' Right Along", they meet up with Big Bird who says, "I'm on my way to New York City". Is this meeting on another movie starring Big Bird or am I sadly mistaken?

Answer: This is Big Bird's only movie where he says this line. It is a reference to his going to New York hoping to get a role on Public Television (the station that created "Sesame Street") This is verified in TV interviews with the late Jim Henson and on Wikipedia.
