- Box Office Bomb: Budget: $26 million. Box office: $11,683,047.
- California Doubling: Whereas the previous movie was filmed in Toronto (resulting in people from Fraggle Rock working on the film), this film was shot in Wilmington, NC, at the EUE/Screen Gems facility (partly owned by Sony), filming back to back with Muppets From Space.
- Creator Killer: The failure of both this and Muppets from Space (which was released one month earlier) badly damaged The Jim Henson Company's film division Jim Henson Pictures and prompted Columbia Pictures to drop the label.
