* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Gonzo's speech about being an alien sounds an awful lot like coming out of the closet...

In this film, the Muppets are living communally in an old house ([[NegativeContinuity for some reason]]), with Piggy's motivation to become a successful TV reporter being the only clear source of their income. Gonzo feels lonely, because there's no one like him; he has friends, but no family, and everyone else does. Feeling despondent, he is contacted through his breakfast cereal (no, really) and told to watch the sky. Eventually, he is convinced that he is actually an alien that somehow wound up on Earth; elated at the thought that there may be more of his kind in space, he tries to communicate with the other beings, while being thought of as crazy by his friends. Between being duped into building a Jacuzzi for the aliens, being captured and interrogated by a [[TheMenInBlack anonymous government agency]] headed by Jeffrey Tambor, and nearly being dissected by a (Muppet) MadScientist, it takes a while before Gonzo finally gets to meet his space-brethren.

* ProductPlacement: The government agency's monitors are Creator/{{Sony}} television screens. The product placement is so shameless they don't even ''bother'' blacking the logo out of the screens! Since Sony-owned Creator/ColumbiaPictures produced the film, though, this is expected.

* ArmiesAreEvil

to:

* ArmiesAreEvilArmiesAreEvil: Mostly because Ed's organization are dedicated to deal with alien ''invasions''.



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler:Ed suspects correctly (somehow) that Bobo knows where the Muppet gang are heading.]]



* RunningGag: Gonzo keeps asking if his people look like anything other than what he looks like.



* TooDumbToLive: Fozzie, as per usual. This time, it was going to the bathroom, and washing his hands while wearing invisibility spray, while sneaking around in a heavily guarded compound. Kermit realizes this, and the first thing he says is "Tell me you didn't wash your hands."

It received mixed reviews, with some minor InternetBacklash, though the majority seem to consider this to be a fairly good Muppet film. It also seemed, for a while, that it might be the last of its kind - the [[Film/TheMuppets next film]] would not come for another twelve years!
