* LoopingLines: Similar to what happened with Frank Oz in ''Film/MuppetTreasureIsland'' and ''Film/MuppetsFromSpace'', Jerry Nelson was unable to perform any of his characters on-set in this film due to falling ill at the time of filming so stand-in performers did them instead[[note]]Which included Steve Whitmire as Statler, who has one un-looped line in the final film ("Historical landmark") and would take over the character full-time shortly thereafter until his termination from the Muppets in 2016[[/note]] while he looped their dialogue later. The only one of his returning characters that he didn't loop dialogue for was Lew Zealand.
* TheOtherDarrin: Starting with this movie, all of Frank Oz' characters have been recast -- Miss Piggy, Fozzie and Animal (and Yoda) are performed by Eric Jacobson, while Sam the Eagle is [[Series/SesameStreet Kevin Clash]]. Scooter and Janice also get significant dialogue for the first time since Richard Hunt's death, and are now voiced by Brian Henson (for this movie only -- they'd both get recast again for future projects). As mentioned above, Lew Zealand here is performed by Bill Barretta instead of Jerry Nelson.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: While trying to deliver the money to Miss Bitterman, Fozzie is chased by a character known in the credits as Safari Animal Tracker who is an obvious Expy of [[Series/CrocodileHunter Steve Irwin]]. This role was originally supposed to be Irwin himself in a cameo who ultimately had to back down due to scheduling conflicts.
* YouLookFamiliar: Creator/DavidArquette had previously appeared as Dr. Tucker in ''Film/MuppetsFromSpace''.
