* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Kermit's nurse points out it was unusual that Kermit was found wearing no clothing, seemingly unable to notice that Kermit is a frog. And while she seems to find it odd that he wasn't wearing any clothing, she doesn't seem to see it as a serious problem.

* BottleEpisode: Because Jim Henson was juggling a bunch of other projects at the same, he didn't want to go on location for a film shoot, so he came up with the idea of setting a film in New York so he could stay close by the Muppet offices.

* BlandNameProduct: During his Phil amnesia phase, Kermit is briefly shown reading ''The New York Financial Journal'', which looks exactly like ''The Wall Street Journal''.

* AuthorAvatar: As with ''TheMuppetMovie'', this can be read as an allegory of Jim Henson's career. Like his creator, Kermit gains local popularity performing during his college years, decides to try his luck in New York, struggles, takes an unlikely detour into the world of advertising, then gets his big break.

** When another 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.

One of the musical numbers, featuring baby versions of some of the characters, turned out to be the debut of the ''MuppetBabies''; their subsequent SaturdayMorningCartoon kicked off the SpinoffBabies craze.

* 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.
