Radar: The Muppets


  • During the show within the movie, several popular songs are performed in unusual ways. Cee-Lo Green's popular song (under its more family-friendly name 'Forget You') is clucked by chickens, with no intelligible lyrics.
    • Not to mention a clever Stealth Pun; there's no way it's a coincidence the offending lyric is here replaced with a literal cluck.
    • Similarly, although 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' is performed, all the potentially objectionable lines are given to Beaker - such as 'My libido' or 'A mulatto'. Both are excellent examples of the Muppets' special gift for making Bowdlerised lyrics funnier, not just more family-friendly.
    • The Muppet Viral Videos version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" also replaces lyrics about death with in-character distractions.
  • When Piggy and crew go to acquire a celebrity host so the show can go on, they go to the studio. When they reach a certain trailer, Jack Black comes out in a motion capture suit and yells, "Hey, I told you, I'm not finished putting on my balls!". It honestly wouldn't have been so bad if he hadn't said that last word with so much force...
    • He also becomes the first human to go face-first into Piggy's crotch...admittedly, she WAS attempting a kung-fu move on him at the time.
  • During "Life's a Happy Song," a hippie bearing a resemblance to well-known stoner Willie Nelson sings, "Life is full of highs."
  • When confronting Miss Poogy, a rather husky-voiced and angry-looking Moopet, Miss Piggy takes a not-so-subtle look at Poogy's crotch area.
    Miss Piggy: Listen ..." [crotch check] "sister ..."
  • During the scene with Pepe's cameo, the song that is playing is "Time of My Life" from Dirty Dancing. This wouldn't be so bad, if they hadn't decided to have Piggy to be singing the most suggestive line in the entire song at that point. (Baby, I know what's on your mind when you say/'Stay with me tonight').


  • In the first episode, Sam the Eagle goes down a list of words they're not allowed to say on TV, including "crotchety," "twiddle" and "gesticulate," the last of which just means "moving hands"... which leads to shaking hands, which is the first step in making babies.
    • Fozzie interrupts a dinner between Rizzo and another female rat.
    Rizzo: It was just getting good!
    Female Rat: It will be if this dinner goes well.
  • When Kermit is talking about how he and Denise started dating, the camera focuses to her in another room sucking on a straw.
    Kermit: We were at a cross-promotional synergy meeting, and we ended up, uh, cross promoting.
  • Signing a birthday card Zoot draws a picture that he thinks he can change into a saxophone.
  • After Piggy's date with Josh Groban, Swedish Chef adds his commentary.
    Chef: Der Piggy Gropin de Groban!
