The Muppet Movie Minute 3: Take It or Leave It

We find Lew Zealand tossing fish, Sam the Eagle questions the value of this movie and Kermit addresses a rowdy crowd.


Lew Zealand

  • Amazing
  • Fish; Not in movie or screening
  • Doesn’t care

Sam the Eagle

  • Socially redeeming value?
  • I hope so (I was dying laughing)
  • Paper Airplane ad-libbed?


  • Saved you a seat but someone took it

Kermit addresses the crowd

Solid Continuity

  • Popcorn
  • Seat back missing
  • Confetti

Would be amazing to see under seats

Behind the Scenes look at the Muppets Theater during filming of The Muppet Movie (
  • Prop guys tossing popcorn, paper and paper airplanes up
  • Rowlf does legit toss one
