  • Parental Bonus: It's a Muppet movie. Of course it's going to be packed with Parental Bonus. Among the many instances are at least two references to Star Trek, also counting as Late to the Punchline moments for viewers rewatching it.

  • Shout-Out
    Gonzo:
    "We'd be out searching for that treasure! Sailing the seas on a five-year mission, boldly going where no man has gone before! Say, that's catchy."

...What's the other shout out to Star Trek? O_o

okay, could somebody explain what the Late To The Joke aspect of Piggy's "I'm a Pig, I need Commitment!" joke is? I don't get it.

It's related to an old joke. It comes in many forms. Let me give it a shot:

A chicken said to a pig, "Why don't we surprise Farmer McDonald by making him a breakfast of ham and eggs?"

The pig replied, "That's easy for you to say. You'd only have to make a contribution. I'd have to make a commitment!"
