- [Ed is examining Gonzo] Ed Singer: No nostrils. How do you smell? Rizzo the Rat: Awful. Trust me, I'm his roommate.
Gonzo: Rizzo, come here, my Cap'n Alphabet is sending me a message: R U There. Rizzo: Are you sure it didn't say "you need help"?
Gonzo: People of Earth, do not be alarmed! Miss Piggy: Oh brother.
Ubergonzo: People of Earth: Later.
Pepe: You tell him, and I will smack you. I will smack you like a bad, bad donkey, okay!
- The original concept was based upon the song "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday" which Gonzo sings in The Muppet Movie (1979). Muppeteer Dave Goelz recorded a new version of the song (in 4/4 time) but it was not used in the film. It was included on the soundtrack album, however.
The band Ween was asked to provide a song for this movie. It was to be for the scene in which Gonzo was sitting on the roof dreaming of where he might have come from. After the song was recorded, it was decided that all of the music in the movie should be funk/soul and they asked Ween to record a remake of "Brick House". They declined.
Randal Kleiser was to direct the film, but was dropped before production began.
The voice of Baab the Sheep was eleven year old Kristina Donnelly, who was given the opportunity through the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Kristina wanted to be an actress in a Muppet film, but when given a choice between that and voicing a puppet of her own (the suggestion made to her by Steve Whitmire and Dave Goelz), she chose the puppet. Near the end of her time filming Steve and Dave presented her with a special edition of the Hensonville News Observer and a bag full of Muppet merchandise. The puppet she voiced, Baab, was also given to her.
The first Muppet film since the deaths of Jim Henson and Richard Hunt to have their signature Muppet characters (Rowlf, Scooter, and Dr. Teeth) talk. Rowlf's only line is "Awwww!" at the breakfast table, when he finds out they're having bologna. Dr. Teeth's only line is "Shalom!", on the way to a bar mitzvah. Scooter was voiced by Richard's brother Adam Hunt, and his line is "Get your Gonzo T-shirts. Only ten bucks!"
