** There are only three references to the last theatrical Muppet movie, ''Film/MuppetsFromSpace'': Gonzo's "People of Earth" callback (which, in itself, is something he would say even before MFS), Bobo's role as the villain's not-exactly-evil henchman, and the fact Gary and Walter own the movie on DVD (you'd have to look ''really'' closely to realize that, though).

The plot involves Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Creator/JasonSegel) and Gary's girlfriend Mary (Creator/AmyAdams) from Smalltown, USA, going on a vacation to Los Angeles. There the trio discover the nefarious plan of oilman [[ShapedLikeItself Tex Richman]] (Creator/ChrisCooper) to raze the [[Series/TheMuppetShow Muppet Theater]] and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets' former stomping grounds. To stage ''The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever'' and raise the $10-million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit the Frog reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. [[TheCameo Celebrity cameos]] and [[NoFourthWall fourth-wall-breaking]] [[HilarityEnsues ensue]]. ...and dancing chickens...and Creator/JackBlack.

* ExactEavesdropping: Played with. Walter paraphrases the conversation between Statler & Waldorf and Richman (and minions), but uses an Edward G. Robinson voice to describe how Tex sounded.

** Creator/WhoopiGoldberg is the first celebrity to show up at the Muppet Theater to help, and one of the few that we can say with certainty are actually there because they want to be and not because their agents told them to. Not surprising, given [[Series/TheHollywoodSquares her]] [[Series/MuppetsTonight previous]] [[ItsaVeryMerryMuppetChristmasMovie interactions]] [[Film/AMuppetsChristmasLettersToSanta with]] [[WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies the]] [[Series/SesameStreet Henson]] [[Series/BearInTheBigBlueHouse gang]].
