* There has been much debate as to whether ''The Muppet Movie'' or ''Film/AMuppetFamilyChristmas'' is more of a Jim Henson victory lap. In any case, both are Crowning Moments for everyone involved and both feature a fantastic moment at the end that is somewhere in-between this and CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming:
** "Here's to the lovers, the dreamers, and you!"
-->'''Mad Scientist/ Creator/MelBrooks''': Say Goodbye to the frog, pig!\\
'''Piggy''': Why should I?\\
'''Mad Scientist''': Cause in about ten seconds, he won't know you from kosher bacon!\\
'''Piggy''': ''THAT DOES IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!''\\
(Bursts out of her bonds and proceeds to whoop ass.)
* From a production standpoint, Kermit riding the bicycle. Decades later and people are ''still'' impressed by the puppetry work.
** In the same vein, the duet between Kermit and Rowlf. It fulfilled something of a desire of Creator/JimHenson's that would've been impractical on ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' (as he performed both characters and the average episode had a obviously tighter filming schedule).
* Giant Animal.
-->'''Animal:''' '''BAD MAN!!!!!!!!!!'''
* None other than Orson Welles providing the film's final cameo, fulfilling all of Kermit's dreams without even needing to see any of his act.
** On a meta-level, only Welles could provide a ton of characterization and depth to a character who appears for a grand total of ''40 seconds''. That's acting, folks.
* The speech by Kermit, and in a strange way, Doc's rejection of it, breaking from the standard kid's movie formula.
