* AccidentalMisnaming: Because Daniel is nervous and mutters when dealing directly with The Boss for the first time, he tells her his name is, "D-d-d-dan... Danny... el...". With that, The Boss calls him "Danny-elle". (Which could be interpreted as "Danny L.", when you find out that [[{{Tuckerization}} Daniel was named after Jim Lewis' son]].)



* GiftOfTheMagiPlot: Spoofed in the beginning of the film, when several Muppets exchange gifts only to discover that they've given up prized possessions to do so.

** A big one to the original ''TheMuppetMovie'', when Kermit discovers that in the world where he never existed, Doc Hopper did successfully open his chain of french-fried frog legs restaurants.
** While in the park, Kermit sees a statue of himself with some children, which has this (first movie-inspired) inscription: "For the lovers, the dreamers and you..."

** The Muppets' stage show is a very drawn-out ShoutOut to ''Film/MoulinRouge'', complete with color-change, [[GRatedDrug "funny green root beer"]], and "Saltine" the performer. Heck, just look at its name: Moulin ''[[Literature/AChristmasCarol Scrooge]]''.

* TheOtherDarrin: Starting with this movie, all of Frank Oz' characters have been recast -- Miss Piggy, Fozzie and Animal (and Yoda) are performed by Eric Jacobsen, while Sam the Eagle is [[Series/SesameStreet Kevin Clash]]. Scooter and Janice also get significant dialogue for the first time since Richard Hunt's death, and are now voiced by Brian Henson (for this movie only -- they'd both get recast again for future projects).



** So.. basically I die, then go to work with ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}?
