Culminating at the church where the Electric Mayhem are, with a sign that says "Lost? Have you tried Rev. Harry Krishna?"
Another Running Gag/Chekhov's Gag involving the introduction of Sweetums. Originally the "jack" for car dealer Berle, he starts chasing Kermit and company when he learns they're going to Hollywood. We see him one time in Miss Piggy's entrance scene, and then, finally, he crashes through the projector screen as the movie-within-the-movie finishes, finally catching up with everybody.
To prove this movie has No Fourth Wall, at one point in the movie Kermit hands the script to said movie over to Electric Mayhem to explain Kermit and Fozzie's story as to why they're traveling, as an alternative to summarizing the whole movie up to that point, since as Kermit points out, "it'll bore the audience!"
Fozzie driving through a forest, looking around appreciatively. "Ahh, a bear in his natural habitat. (Beat) A Studebaker."

Fozzie: Uh...he was so fat that everybody liked him, and there was nothing funny about him at all.

Gonzo: Sure, if you want to do it the easy way.
Fozzie: (singsongy) We picked up a weirdo...
The labeling of the Blu-Ray, "The Muppet Movie: The Nearly 35th Anniversary Edition", makes a humorous acknowledgment of Disney's tendency to release anniversary editions of their movies either one year early or one year too late. (eg, Later that same year, Mary Poppins received a 50th Anniversary Edition during its 49th anniversary.)
El Sleezo Cafe is filled with outrageous stereotypes of all shapes and sizes. Apparently, it's the bar that all jokes walk into.
