The Muppet Movie

Revealing mistake: When Sweetums scares the girls out of the tent, watch the first girl that runs out screaming. If you look at her face closely, you can see that she is smiling.

Revealing mistake: When Fozzie comes out on stage and starts his act, you can see lines around him, suggesting he was matted into the scene. He also reacts a second too late to the gun being shot by him, and he doesn't cast a shadow.

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.
