  • There's a scene where a police vehicle comes into view and we hear gun firing. Nothing is shown, but this was made for an out of context joke.
  • A muppet asks a man to throw him over a fence and a woman warns that she thinks the fence is electrified - a crunching sound is heard as the man folds up the muppet's legs and throws him against the fence, sizzling is also heard; large sparks are shown as the muppet is electrocuted and falls to the ground with smoke coming off his hair and his face is singed (he is unharmed).
  • Muppets attack a man, wrapping a rope around his torso and putting a bag over his head, a muppet karate chops the man's neck.

  • A muppet swings his arm around, about to throw a bowling ball at a man's head; the man is tied to a chair with a bowling pin on his head.
