* WhatAnIdiot: [[invoked]] Invoked directly by Gonzo: Rizzo was panicking about climbing up a gate and then having to jump down from the top of the gate. After a crash landing on the ground, Rizzo...squeezes through the bars to get back to the other side to retrieve jellybeans, meaning he'd never really needed to climb the gate in the first place!

* WhatAnIdiot: [[invoked]] Invoked {{Invoked|Trope}} directly by Gonzo: Gonzo as an InUniverse example: Rizzo was panicking about climbing up a gate and then having to jump down from the top of the gate. After a crash landing on the ground, Rizzo... squeezes through the bars to get back to the other side to retrieve jellybeans, meaning he'd never really needed to climb the gate in the first place!

* DarkerAndEdgier: The movie follows very closely the book, and can be seen as very dark for a Muppet movie. The emotion is often put before the laughter, Gonzo and Rizzo provide more than half of the comic relief, and the part with the ghost of Christmas Yet To Come is both scary and sad. The Marley scene is one of the biggest NightmareFuel scenes in the franchise, even though they are portrayed by JustForFun/StatlerAndWaldorf.
