* Bear with me on this one. There's two "levels" to most Muppet productions - the Muppets as actors, and the Muppets as characters played by those actors. Prior to this show, while characters ''played by'' Kermit and Miss Piggy had gotten together, the behind-the-scenes Kermit and Miss Piggy were ''never'' in a relationship, as much as Piggy wanted one (and this most recently confirmed in the Muppet Character Encyclopedia, released in 2014). However, in the show, Kermit and Miss Piggy have just broken up, and that extends to out-of-character segments within the show and even out-of-character interviews done outside of the show. So... did the Muppet writers just forget they were never a couple, or is this just a massive retcon?

*** Actually, it was spelled out by StatlerAndWaldorf that the deed/"Standard Rich and Famous" contract meant Kermit's claim to the deed expired after the 30 years had passed. The contract was iron-clad, ''except'' for the stipulation that they could buy it outright for $10 Million before the contract's expiration.

** [[ItsAVeryMerryMuppetChristmasMovie One movie]] had a deleted scene it was announced that he passed away and left the theater to Kermit-- same movie also had the theater declared a historical landmark, meaning it couldn't be torn down. So yeah, I guess that's not canon to this movie. I like to assume that it's an alternate continuity wherein he died but ''did not'' leave the theater to Kermit, or even make out a will.

** Jim Henson was mainly NYC-based, he had been doing ''Series/SesameStreet'' from there for some time.

* So why would Piggy and Kermit collaborate on a show as star and producer/director and base it in LA rather than New York? Kermit certainly has the natural climactic preferences of a frog, and Miss Piggy some of those of a pig, and there's plenty of swampland in the north Jersey commuter belt...

** The pig knows karate. Would you really want to be on the other end of the hook that would grab Miss Piggy?

* So many of us noticed that giant {{Cars 2}} billboard on top of the Muppet Theater that they showed multiple times during the movie. Assuming Disney and/or Pixar paid the Muppets to let them put their billboard outside their theater, it certainly wouldn't be enough to save the theater immediately but wouldn't the Muppets make a decent sum of money from that promotion to at least pay the bills?

* So during the time-saving montage the Muppets got many characters back against their will by pulling them with a stage hook. Why didn't they just use the hook to bring Miss Piggy back?
