** Jim Henson once said that they wanted Gonzo to dream of being a movie star at the least likely of places, unaware until the film was completed that India produces more movies per year than Hollywood.
** Kermit's reasoning for not doing the frog leg ad, is because he can imagine [[AnArmAndALeg frogs with tiny crutches.]] Years later his Nephew Robin plays the crutch toting Tiny Tim in TheMuppetChristmasCarol.
** It only took 40 years, but Western stars are [[http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/hindi/bollywood/Top-10-foreign-actresses-in-Bollywood/photostory/24691995.cms finally making it big in Bollywood,]] making this exchange that much funnier.

** also the idea of Doc Hopper threatening Kermit and wanting to make him a frog burger is really unsettling.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Downplayed. It isn't ''in''appropriate for children or families, but is clearly meant to be viewed as any other Hollywood feature which just happens to star puppets (indeed, Jim Henson himself always saw the Muppets as more of a theater troupe than as characters). Still, it was not an easy pitch to sell.

** Also, keep in mind that in 1980, wine made in places other than France or Italy or whatever (for example, California wine) was seen as a joke or mediocre. Nowadays, it's different. That said, to most folks outside of Idaho, ''wine'' is not something that comes to mind when that state is mentioned.

[Hint: The state license plate says "Famous Potatoes".] Additionally, the wine bottle had a ''bottle cap''.
