* BreakTheHaughty: Miss Piggy gets put through this in ''Miss Piggy's Hollywood'' -- not only does her CelebrityLie become increasingly transparent to the audience, she tumbles out of the back of a car, gets blown up at Universal Studios at the end of an egotistical rewrite of "That's Entertainment", and falls backwards into a pool as the day progresses. [[CryCute She finally breaks down on camera and admits to her deception]], whereupon the proceedings take a happy turn at last.

* CelebrityLie: ''Miss Piggy's Hollywood'' is built on Piggy trying to put this over even as it quickly becomes clear that the stars she's trying to get on camera for interviews are ''not'' dear friends of hers, reaching a low point when an angry Justine Bateman backs her into a pool (Gonzo told her agent she was going to be interviewed by Barbara Walters). Just after she knocks on the door of the final "friend", Creator/DudleyMoore, Piggy finally breaks down and has a CryCute as she admits to the audience that she's been fibbing because she wanted to live up to their expectations...and for a moment doesn't realize that Moore has not only stepped outside but is thrilled to see her, as he's a huge fan of hers. She promptly cheers up after that!

Unfortunately, it failed to catch on. ExecutiveMeddling resulted in a far less structured show than Henson had in mind, leaving audiences confused, and the new Muppets were largely a disappointment. A common refrain from critics was that people should skip the first half of each episode, and only tune in for the ''Storyteller'' segments. As a result, the show ended up being a total ratings failure. Twelve episodes were produced, but the ratings were so bad that NBC cancelled it after only ''five'' of them aired. Four of the remaining episodes were burned off that July. Two more episodes premiered as stand-alone specials on Nickelodeon in 1992 and 1993. The last episode never aired in the United States, while it did air in the United Kingdom on December 30, 1990.

* DemotedToExtra[=/=]CommutingOnABus: Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear don't appear very often, as Creator/FrankOz was busy with movie projects (particularly ''Film/WhatAboutBob'') during the show's production.

* {{Homage}}: The show was designed to be a Jim Henson version of ''Series/WaltDisneyPresents'' (hour-long, rotating subjects, Jim introducing and closing each episode, etc.). [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GR8UbcmHcYI More so in the original pitch]], but still.
