Minute 82 – Paper Towels – The Great Muppet Caper

The Muppets, wearing their finest disguises, try to get into the Mallory Gallery.


It’s the Muppets Minute Show with Hosts Nick and Annie!

It’s time to talk about the Muppet’s movies Minute by Minute.

Today we are talking about the Great Muppet Caper, Minute 82.

Minute 82 starts with The Muppets approaching the gates of the Mallory Gallery and ends with Kermit asking Animal to eat the gate.

Disguises in place…
All fake noses and mustaches


Blow torch?
– Paper Towels
– Hot Mustard

Animal – Eat through the bars?
Animal being Animal

Fantastic Muppet shot

Early Script:

– Animal gets shocked when he tries to bite through the electric fence.
– Lew Zealand isn’t the one who brings the paper towels. That honor went to Rowlf.

Many of the more common facts about the film and The Muppets are not directly attributed to any one source. It is not my intention to claim all of the above information as my own.
