** Johnny Fiama, Sal Minella and Dr. Phil van Neuter became core characters in post-Muppets Tonight Muppet productions for a few years, but fell victim to this trope after the mid-2000s. Though Johnny and Sal made their final appearance in the "Muppets sing Music/BohemianRhapsody" Viral Video in 2009. Quite a few characters from the show have also turned up from time to time in the background of various productions. This is largely because the Sal and van Neuter were performed by Brian Henson, who stopped performing on a regular basis when the Muppets were sold to Disney.

* WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong: At the start of the WhoopiGoldberg episode, Clifford is really optimistic about the show that night, and is cheerfully telling Kermit about the plans, until Bill the Bubble Guy walks past and adds, "What could possibly go wrong?" Cue [[GenreSavvy Clifford's]] immediate paranoia and a phone call from Miss Piggy saying that she's flying back from a mall opening in Antarctica and might not make the closing number.
