* RealitySubtext: Edgar Bergen and Charlie [=McCarthy=] made their last appearance in the film - Henson was inspired to make the Muppets because of him. Bergen died not long after his scene was shot, and the film is dedicated to him.

* [[DeletedScene Deleted Scenes]]: Statler and Waldorf popping up at random points in the movie. ** A slightly longer version of the Kermit-Fozzie dance number in the El Sleazo Cafe. ** An extended version of Doc Hopper's commercial. ** An extra verse in both "Movin' Right Along" and "I Hope That Something Better Comes Along." ** A more in-depth version of the reading of the screenplay (including a reference to "a large yellow bird"). ** A longer conversation between Doc Hopper and Max before they encountered the rainbow-colored studebaker. ** Gonzo's reasons for hitting Fozzie's studebaker were originally different. Doc Hopper, while eating breakfast in the back of his limousine, accidentally sprayed a bottle of maple syrup onto his clothes. He attempted to clean the mess up with some tissues, but those ultimately got stuck to his suit. Eventually, tissue-covered Doc somewhat resembled a giant chicken, which distracted Gonzo. ** Kermit and Piggy on a Hawaiian honeymoon during the "Never Before, Never Again" montage. ** Sam the Eagle appearing on a sign that reads "Keep America Clean."

** Max was initially a minor character. Austin Pendleton was offered the role, but initially turned it down, feeling the part was too small. Director James Frawley rewrote the Max character, and about a week later, convinced Pendleton to appear in the movie.
