* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Occurs regularly with the stock footage.
--> '''Rowlf:''' Tell her she's cool! Tell her she's -
--> '''Bob Hope:''' -nutty as a fruitcake.
* EarWorm: ''"Muppet Babies! We make our dreams come true. Muppet Babies! we'll do the same for you..."''
** Thirty years later, this troper STILL remembers the words to "Snow White Blues" and "On A Merry-Go-Round."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Si-cuCQZ6Tk "Good things happen in the dark...]]"
** "Big hand, little hand, racing around!/Gee, don't you wish you could slow them down!/Too much fun! You're. Run-ning. Out. Of. Time!"
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: When the gang film their own version of ''Film/ANewHope'', Kermit and Piggy play Luke and Leia as the OfficialCouple. Guess they hadn't seen ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' yet...
** FridgeBrilliance: Maybe Gonzo at least saw it. After all, who was it that played Leia's true love Han Solo? Gonzo.
* HilariousInHindsight: There have been hints made [[Film/MuppetsFromSpace that Gonzo is an alien]].
** Bunsen Honeydew also has a 3-D television set he made for the babies to test out in one episode. They would be on the market about twenty-six years later.
** The above-mentioned ''Film/ANewHope'' ShoutOut would become hilarious once Disney bought ''both'' the Muppet franchise in 2004 and Star Wars in 2012.
* NightmareFuel:
** The dark Marvel Productions logo with an evil-looking Spiderman accompanied by [[LastNoteNightmare THAT horrible trumpet solo]]
*** Blame the short-lived live-action/animated companion, ''Little Muppet Monsters'', for that one. It only lasted 3 episodes for a variety of reasons (animation not on time, clash between animation and live-action, not-so-good execution of concept (3 kid Muppets broadcasting their own TV channel, only receivable in the Muppets' own home), etc.). Yet, they kept the theme for the ending of ''Muppet Babies'' until they ended in 1991.
*** The fact that it's [[TheStinger followed by]] [[OnceAnEpisode the customary]] [[ThatsAllFolks "Goooo bye-bye!"]] CouchGag can be seen as either MoodWhiplash at best, or adding insult to injury at worst.
** What's also incredibly bizarre is when you consider this series used footage from a film that later became a franchise. During the third season, there was one episode where Fozzie tells everyone of an "Attack of the Silly Tomatoes" and that sequence used footage from the 1978 film ''AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes''. Due to its ratings success, John De Bello was called to make a sequel (10 years after the original film was made), which led to us having three more movies in the series plus the 1990-1991 Fox Kids cartoon (ironically produced by Marvel Productions).
** The episode where they try to cure Beaker's fear of the dark. ''Everything'' about that episode.
** The episode where they're all making cake, and it randomly cuts to the incredibly creepy Stay Puff Marshmallow Man from ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' destroying a city.
* TheScrappy: Bean Bunny.
* TearJerker: "Faster Than A Speeding Weirdo."
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDS4cQFPwoQ I'll Be Blue For You.]]" Given that it's ''Gonzo'' singing it you'd think it'd be nothing but {{Narm}}, but... damn, even as an ''adult'' it's hard not to break down into a quivering heap at this. You can imagine what it did to the kids in the audience. The fact that it's also an EarWorm ''really'' doesn't help matters. * Sniff!*
