Did You Know?
- Orson Welles plays a studio executive named Lew Lord who draws up a standard rich-and-famous contract for The Muppets, a reference to real-life producer Sir Lew Grade. When Jim Henson was trying to find a producer to make The Muppet Show (1976) happen, no American network understood, nor was interested in the concept, Grade recognized Henson's vision and made the show possible.
- When Fozzie stops the car the first time to speak to Big Bird the car is further up; when the camera moves to Big Bird, he is seen standing directly next to the car.
- [singing; repeated lines]
- Kermit: Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection. The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

This movie stands the test of time! I still laughed at all of the jokes and every song was my favorite!
After that first second we quit wondering: This is magic, after all, so who wants to know where Henson is?
Perfect for family viewing.
