* The ''Series/SesameStreet'' gang, once settled in the house, decide to practice their Christmas pageant, a presentation of ''TwasTheNightBeforeChristmas.'' Considering that the show takes place on ''Christmas Eve'', it's unclear when they're planning to hold the actual performance. It's specifically said that "it's time to '''rehearse''' our Sesame Street pageant!" When is the show?

** The film is set on Christmas Eve, so presumably it would be on Christmas Day.

* Fozzie's mom is friends with StatlerAndWaldorf, who visit her every Christmas. But...wasn't she on her way out the door to spend Christmas at the beach when the show started? S&W clearly didn't come with the rest of the Muppets, Fozzie is shocked when they turn up. How did they get there? And why? Did Mrs. Bear call them up at some point and tell them that her vacation was off?

** Thank goodness, I thought I was the only who didn't like [[JerkAss the Turkey]]. Scoffing at Gonzo's warning only to hit on his girl Camilla was one thing, but he practically sold out a child (Big Bird is canonically ''six years old'') to save his own ass puts him across the MoralEventHorizon for me. The fact his puppet was recycled in ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'' as a turkey being sold to a Frackle does give me a sense of universal karma.

*** For that matter, why didn't Mrs. Bear, at any point, tell Statler and Waldorf to stop heckling Fozzie! I mean, yeah they're her friends, but Fozzie is HER SON!!

* As cute as it was, the home movie with the ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'' raises so many questions. Where's Nanny? Where's Skeeter? What about all of the media in which Kermit and the gang grow up separately and meet each other as adults? That's like a really huge ContinuitySnarl.
