* LetsMeetTheMeat: Doc Hopper's proposal for Kermit to advertise for "Hopper's French-Fried Frog Legs". Kermit is fully aware of the inherent horror of this trope, however. ("All I can see are millions of frogs with tiny crutches.")

** All right, let's see... Creator/SteveMartin is serving wine, Elliot Gould is a beauty contest emcee, Creator/RichardPryor is selling balloons, Milton Berle is a used car salesman, Carol Kane keeps showing up when someone says "Myth", Creator/MelBrooks is a mad scientist, Creator/DomDeLuise is chased by an alligator and sets Kermit off on his journey to Hollywood, Madeline Kahn is a patron at The El Sleezo Cafe with Telly Savalas as her boyfriend (and where Creator/JamesCoburn is the owner), BobHope sells ice cream cones, and Cloris Leachman is secretary to Creator/OrsonWelles, who gives The Muppets the standard 'Rich & Famous' contract. Plus Edgar Bergen and Charlie [=McCarthy=] as themselves. Tada![[note]] Martin, Berle, [=DeLuise=], Kahn, Coburn, Hope, Leachman, Bergen and [=McCarthy=], and El Sleezo pianist Paul Williams also made guest appearances on ''Series/TheMuppetShow'', although Coburn's appearance came after the film. (Pryor was slated to appear in the 1980-81 season, but had to bow out after setting himself on fire in June 1980; he was replaced by series writer Chris Langham.) This was inverted with Welles; Jim Henson, Frank Oz and the Muppets were guest stars on his show instead.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Max is first seen supervising the construction of one of his boss's restaurants, but getting distracted and delighted by the sight of Kermit riding a bicycle, and relieved when he manages to escape being run over -- which is a tip-off to his turning out to be a MinionWithAnFInEvil who likes Kermit too much to see him harmed over Hopper's plans.

* BadGuyBar: "El Sleezo Cafe"
* {{Balloonacy}}: Happens to Gonzo at one point.

to:

* BadGuyBar: "El The El Sleezo Cafe"
Cafe is too tough a place even for its owner!
* {{Balloonacy}}: Happens to Gonzo at one point.point: At the fair, he's convinced to buy a bunch of balloons to impress Camilla, which promptly lift him into the air and away. The other Muppets have to pursue him by car, even as he loves the experience of flying. "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday", his solo number during their breakdown in the desert later, is partially him reflecting on it.



** Also, be honest, how many of you already guessed Gonzo's origins ([[spoiler:He's an alien]]) just by listening to him sing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryEjm3k6uY0/ '''this''' song?]]

In the summer of 1979, Creator/JimHenson brought his beloved characters from ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' to the big screen to tell their story. After a very meta ColdOpening where we see the Muppets attending a private screening of their own film, we see how Kermit was inspired to leave his home in the swamps of Mississippi and head to Hollywood.
