* The 2011 revival, ''Film/TheMuppets'', pretends as though the above never happened, and shows the theater having money troubles. In this movie, a greedy oil magnate wants to buy it, bulldoze it, and drill for precious oil underneath. [[spoiler:In this case, the Muppets actually fail to raise the money despite a charity telethon. However, they decide as a family that it's more important that they gave it their all and they can start from scratch again. Just as the credits start, Gonzo smacks the villain in the head with a bowling ball, causing him to finally gain the ability to laugh, so he [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot gives the property back for free anyway]]]].

** The game's creators may have been running low on ideas, since a similar plot was previously used in the second ''SakuraWars'' OAV (wherein the Teikoku Kagekidan stopped an evil developer from knocking down a poor neighborhood of Tokyo).
