Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Muppet Movie, The
Edgar Bergen. Edgar Bergen (who, with his puppet sidekick, Charlie McCarthy, played the judges for the beauty pageant Miss Piggy won) passed away on October 1, 1978, about a year before the movie was released. They also appeared on "The Muppet Show" before his passing. That's all, now take my "Great Muppet Caper" quiz.
Sweetums. Sweetums, who played Mad Man Mooney's assistant, busted through the screen and said, "I just knew I'd catch up with you guys!"
|What was the name of the character Kermit and the gang auditioned for?||The Muppet Movie
Lew Lord. They had to almost kill the receptionist to get in (she was allergic to animal fur, and they turned up the electric fan and shook it at her until she collapsed), but when they got in, they finally got to meet the man, and he, without question, gave all of them the "Standard Rich and Famous" contract.
|When they finally rolled into Hollywood, what landmark did they not drive past?||The Muppet Movie
|Who turns huge after taking one of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew's insta-grow pills?||The Muppet Movie
Animal. And just in time, too. That's who you want huge to scare off the likes of Doc Hopper... or anybody for that matter.
America, the Beautiful. "Patriotism swells in the heart of the American bear."
|Professor Krassman told Miss Piggy that in ten seconds Kermit wouldn't know her from what?||The Muppet Movie
kosher bacon. "THAT DOES IT!"
|Professor Krassman told Kermit his machine would put enough voltage into his brain to light up what city?||The Muppet Movie
a whole bunch. Gonzo offered to buy her a red or green balloon, then the balloon salesperson (Richard Pryor) suggested he buy her both, then when he told Gonzo girls go ga-ga when their boyfriends buy them a bunch of balloons, Gonzo went for it... and the rest is history. :-)
Debbie Sue. Debbie Sue was the first runner up. Ami Jane helped Debbie Sue crown Miss Piggy. The other two names are unknown.
a station wagon. Mad Man Mooney (played by Milton Berle) tried to sell them a Volkswagen beetle for $2000, but it fell apart on him. Then Sweetums, after moving the VW out of the way, killed a fly on the price tag of a Ford Woody Wagon, ultimately turning it into a decimal point, changing the price from $1195.00 to $11.95, providing the chance for the gang to snap it up with the trade in allowance they were given. A Mercedes or a pickup truck wasn't offered.
3. First, the Doc Hopper billboard with Kermit's face on it. Then, the soda-pop ad which the Studebaker camoflaged with after "The Electric Mayhem" got done painting it. Then the billboard with the cream pie that got thrown at Doc Hopper's car after the gang crashed into it.
|Where did Gonzo say he was going to in order to become a movie star?||The Muppet Movie
Bombay, India. Gonzo - "I wanted to go to Bombay, India to become a movie star." Fozzie - "You don't go to Bombay to become a movie star, you go where we're going. Hollywood." G - "Sure, if you wanna do it the easy way." F - "We picked up a wierdo."
a church. Which they planned to turn into a coffee-house. Isn't that considered blasphemy?
|How often did Doc Hopper say Kermit would be earning $500 working for him?||The Muppet Movie
every year. "There's $500 in it for you up front. $500 is just the beginning. You could be earning this much every year." Oooooooooo! I earned more allowance a year from my parents.
Studebaker. Kermit - "Gee, a Studebaker. Where'd you get it?" Fozzie - "Oh my uncle left it to me." K - "Oh. Is he dead?" F - "No, he's hibernating."
James Coburn. Yup, the late James Coburn played him. He was tossed out of the place just before Kermit entered. He tells Kermit it's "the toughest, meanest, filthiest pest-hole on the face of the earth." Kermit asks why he doesn't complain to the owner, to which he says, "I am the owner."
a bicycle. He rode a bike to get started, but it was crushed by road construction vehicles. The bus was when The Electric Mayhem came to rescue them from the middle of the desert. A car came along when Fozzie joined. There wasn't a train involved at all.
the alligator. Arnie was Kermit's alligator friend who scared off Bernie the agent (played by Dom DeLouise), the balloon salesperson at the carnival was played by Richard Pryor, and the sailor in the El Sleezo Cafe was played by Telly Savalas.
Dom Deluise. Kermit met Bernie the Agent while playing his banjo in the swamp.
A Studebaker. They later traded it in at the used car lot.
