The Muppet Movie

Plot hole: How did Professor Krassman get shocked into being a frog? The electronic device doesn't even touch his head.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Kermit, Fozzie, and the gang are following Gonzo, who is floating from the helium balloons, Fozzie opens his door and looks up at Gonzo. When he comes back into the car after Kermit shouts at him to do so, the steering wheel comes loose from the dash and all the Muppets start yelling at him for being reckless. In the next shot of the interior, the steering wheel is back in place. I do feel maybe this was a blunder that was left in on purpose, because it was so funny the way all the puppeteers ad-libbed a reaction to what shouldn't have happened, but it fails in continuity because in the next shot the wheel is fine.

Question: When Fozzie is singing the National Anthem, why does he sing 'America the Beautiful', and not 'The Star Spangled Banner' (which is the National Anthem of USA)?

Answer: Fozzie did not mean to sing the National Anthem. He simply wanted to sing something patriotic, since he was so moved by the scenery.
