The Muppet Movie

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?

Chosen 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.

Question: Does anyone know how the effect of Kermit riding the bicycle was done?

Chosen answer: The closest thing to an answer is here, Martin Becker's obituary. His family states that it was a robotic Kermit on a bicycle. Outside of that, everyone else associated with the movie has been quiet on the subject.http://www.fridaythe13thfilms.com/saga/part5/martinbecker.html.

They used gyros in the wheels - Martin Becker made the first self-driving bike for that movie-now the same tech is used in the self-driving bikes seen in the Netherlands. -Diana Becker, Martin's widow.

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)?

Chosen 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.
