Although the film didn't out-gross its predecessors, it was the second highest-grossing G-rated film of 1984 (behind the re-issue of Disney's Pinocchio (1940)). See more »
When Miss Piggy karate chops Kermit into a chair and he finally snaps out of his amnesia, he hits the chair upside down. This would've required Kermit to turn 180 degrees still facing everybody as he's flying towards it, which would be impossible due to the laws of physics. See more »
[Muppet Babies, singing]
She's gonna be a movie star. And she's gonna learn to drive a car; she's gonna be a vet'rinarian, too.
And I'm gonna always love you-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
Well, she's gonna be a singer, whoa-whoa-whoa!
And she's gonna learn to fly a plane!
She'll be a doctor of diseases and help you with your sneezes...
...and practice neurosurgery on your brain!

After the final credits roll, we can hear Animal say "Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Bye Bye...Hasta Luego". See more »
The most recent VHS and Family Channel versions have Animal's slow growls of "BAAAAAAD MAAAAAAN" (at Dabney Coleman) dubbed out, though his repeated shouts of the phrase can be heard at the end of the scene. However, the growls are present on the DVD version. The same goes for the sound of Kermit's panting for breath immediately after leaving Leonard Winesop's office. See more »
This is my least-favorite of the three Muppet movies of the Henson era. There just isn't enough Muppets. Most of the gang leaves during the very beginning and it's all about Kermit, Piggy and Rizzo. Great characters, yes, but without the whole wacky ensemble it's just not the same. That, and the film is kind of just reinforcing what happened in the original Muppet movie, only replacing Hollywood with Broadway.
Don't get me wrong, it's an enjoyable movie, but it's not grade 'A' muppet material.
