Trivia: Muppets from Space
  • Creator Backlash: Frank Oz went on record to say that this "was not the film we intended to make." It would be the last Muppet film he is associated with.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Miss Piggy has a Belligerent Sexual Tension-filled karate fight with Will Gardner.
    • Who was working for Judge Kluger from the same show.
  • What Could Have Been: The original draft had Gonzo turning out to not be an alien, but rather the subject of alien worship—they'd been receiving transmissions of The Muppet Show, decided Gonzo was the ultimate being, and tried to contact him. The aliens only resembled Gonzo because they'd taken A Form You Are Comfortable With.
    • The film was originally going to be an actual musical, with the song "I'm Going To Go Back There Someday" from The Muppet Movie making its return, this time, in reference to Gonzo's ambition to find his family. Then someone said, "Naaaaah! 70's funk!"note
