  • Some members of the Borcelino Brothers were recycled from Captain Pighead, David Hoggselhoff, and early versions of Andy and Randy Pig of "Muppet Classic Theater".
  • Working titles for this movie include "The Muppets 3" and "The Muppets...Once Again".
  • A new full-body Muppet debuts in this movie: this time a full-body Muppet elephant that is manipulated by two Muppeteers, one performing in the front using his arm to manipulate its trunk (like Marty Robinson and (the late) Jerry Nelson performing Snuffleupagus on "Sesame Street") and an additional one performing in the back.
  • A very large Muppet dragon takes about five Muppeteers to operate it.
  • Big Bird will have two duplicates: one for Jennifer Barnhart for most of the film, and the other for Carey Stinson for quick entrances and exits.
  • During the credits: The Muppets talk in the theater after the screening of the movie while an instrumental track plays.
