** ''Muppet Babies'' '''runneth over''' with ''Franchise/StarWars'' references, in fact. Thanks to how close Henson Productions and Lucasfilm were at the time, Lucas basically gave the Henson crew free rein to make [[LawyerFriendlyCameo as many references]] as they liked without fear of lawyers, a privilege they used as much as they could. The target audience being [[SmallReferencePools relatively familiar with the works due to their fame]] helped matters a lot, too. However, it would seem that this ended up being a problem anyway years later as a major factor for why the show has no DVD/Blu Ray release (along with the multitude of other live action snippets). On the other hand, with Disney now owning both the Muppet and Star Wars franchises (along with Marvel, which also had a big hand in making the show), a solution is seemingly possible.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In "Dental Hyjinks", Fozzie, Gonzo and Rowlf have deeper voices and sound closer to their adult selves. The episode title music is also different.

* ContinuitySnarl: Only if you consider the FridgeLogic: when is this show taking place anyway? Let's not even get started on the later season that introduced Baby Bean Bunny; Bean's a young kid in the normal Muppets! Or that fact that this was all just Piggy's dream sequence in the third film, but ''actual backstory'' in Film/AMuppetFamilyChristmas, but that would contradict Film/TheMuppetMovie ....yup, this is a galaxy-sized snarl. It's somewhat justified, however, by the very nature of The Muppets. In pretty much every continuity they're entertainers, so any works that don't square with others can be called MutuallyFictional. Even TheMuppetMovie included a throw-away line indicating that liberties had been taken with the "real" events.

** "Eight Take Away One Equals Panic" begins with the babies pretending they are flying on an airliner plane, until they overhear Nanny on the phone and think she's planning on getting rid of one of them. [[spoiler(She was on the phone with a charity and actually looking at getting rid of an old chair from the nursery but was having trouble deciding which one; naturally, with the babies only hearing part of her end of the conversation ... .)/spoiler]]

* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Piggy and Skeeter respectively ([[HiddenDepths No, we did not get that mixed up]] -- Piggy dresses in pink, bows, and lace [[BreadEggsMilkSquick and]] [[CuteBruiser karate chops]] anyone when they set off her HairTriggerTemper, whereas Skeeter is a pants-wearing athlete, but sweeter and much more mellow.)
