The Great Muppet Caper Minute 17 – Why Have You Packed These Things

Everyone gathers for a group photo. Sam the Eagle disapproves. We see Kermit, Fozzie and Gonzo in their hotel room.

NOTES AND RESEARCH

“Happiness Hotel”

kind of pest,

Pops:

But we treat ’em all as equals just like any other guest

Electric Mayhem:

Though you’re cleaner than the others, still as far as we can tell,

All:

You’ll fit right in at Happiness Hotel

Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo et al.:

We’ll fit right in at Happiness Hotel!!

Muppets Bouncing; Annie’s happy

Another group shot singing to camera like the opening number

The flashbulb shot

  • All the eyes are replaced
  • A white transition
  • Janice looks the worst; crazy
  • People with glasses look funny
  • Kermit is odd since we never really get a change to him

Sam the Eagle isn’t wrong

  • What the hell is he doing in this hotel!?

Get to see inside suitcases

  • Fozzie licks fingers
  • You hear the lick
  • So real
  • Stiffs Rizzo

Gonzo: “You sure we can afford this?”

  • Once again, it’s free!

Gonzo: “Call room service”

  • Ok, he just was NOT listening to the song

What can Fozzie use? (cut off sentence at end)
