* NoAntagonist: This is the only Muppet movie not to have any sort of central antagonist (the closest that comes along is the con artist Dabney Coleman plays early on in the film, and even then he's mainly for a throwaway gag more than anything else), with the problem instead being all the trouble Kermit has to go through trying to sell his show. Disregarding Dabney, you've got the producers who all immediately reject the musical pitch.

** The scene where Martin Price is exposed as Murray [[MeaningfulName Plotski]], there are two current edits, both of which remove almost all of Animals, "BAD MAN!" chants. Current TV broadcasts of the movie omit ''all'' of Animal's, "BAD MAN! BAD MAN!" chants, while the current DVD release leaves at least Animal's first two, "Bad man!" as Martin/Murray tries to slip away from the cops.

* [[AndStarring And Introducing]]: Rizzo the Rat became a regular with this film. He didn't find his role as Gonzo's sidekick yet, however.

* GenreThrowback: Not the movie as a whole, but the song in the Muppet Babies number. As with a number of productions at the time, the song is a throwback to 1950s doo-wop.

** When the rats are greasing the grill by skating on it with pats of butter on their feet, the effects crew tried several ways to get the proper sizzling effect. In the end, actual butter on a hot surface worked just fine.
** When the rat is mixing batter by using an eggbeater as an exercise bike, the effects crew mixed several chemicals together to resemble batter. [[EpicFail They somehow created a corrosive substance]] that was eating right through the mixing bowls and they feared was toxic. Finally one member of the crew ([[WomenAreWiser a woman]]) made some actual pancake batter, which they used for the final scene.

* TheUnintelligible: Pete, sort of. His analogy that the city is not a single entity, but a sum of its components: the people living and working in it. It could be considered profound if he were a bit more clear.
