* Toughpigs' series of articles for the movie's 40th anniversary concluded with an [[http://www.toughpigs.com/frawley/ appreciation]] of its then-recently deceased director, James Frawley.
-->At his core, James Frawley was a playful artist with a strong sense of humor, but also an ability to urge his performers, whether they be Monkees or Muppets to slow down and take in what they were doing. Disney, the current owners of The Muppets, would be wise to revisit the work that James Frawley did on The Muppet Movie when looking at the directions that future projects could take. Maybe it’s time for The Muppets to take a trip back to the desert, sit around a campfire and contemplate who they are and why they’re here. I think James Frawley would have liked that.


-->'''Kermit:''' Well, I've got a dream too, but it's about singing, dancing, and making people happy. That's the sort of dream that gets better the more people you share with it. And, well, I've found a whole bunch of friends who have the same dream. And...and that kinda makes us like a family.

'''Kermit's Conscience:''' So why did you leave the swamp in the first place?\\
'''Kermit:''' 'Cause some agent fella said I had talent. He probably says that to everybody.\\
'''Kermit's Conscience:''' On the other hand, if you hadn't left the swamp, you'd be feeling pretty miserable anyhow.\\
'''Kermit:''' Yeah. But then it would just be me feeling miserable. Now I got a lady pig, and a bear and a chicken, a dog, a thing, whatever Gonzo is. He's a little like a turkey.\\

* Nothing for "Never Before, Never Again"? After blatant LoveAtFirstSight for her and Kermit, Miss Piggy swells into a lovestruck number, complete with a fantasy montage of their budding romance.

Added DiffLines:

* It's a easy to miss one, but during the credits gags, after the film is done, Fozzie is asking the rest of the audience if he was funny, getting no replies. Kermit quickly makes his way down to assure Fozzie he was very, ''very'' funny.


* Also the finale to the closing number "The Magic Store", where the camera pulls back to show virtually ''all'' of the Muppets created by Creator/JimHenson up to that point, singing together and celebrating Henson at his crowning time of success.
