With the case solved, The Muppets travel back to America.

NOTES AND RESEARCH

Kermit’s reaction?

Cool set design

My favorite part is that there are obviously empty seats!!!

The Chronicle paid for their flight home

Waldorf and Statler

  • “Obnoxious”
  • “As long as it ends”

First Paper:

Wednesday, August 25, 1980

Last Paper:

  • IT ALL HAPPENED IN TWO DAYS!!!!???
  • Twins and Pig Foil Heist
  • Thieves Caught Red-Handed
  • “Walkout in Poland”
  1. Piggy could have foiled the plan without the other Muppets… maybe they delayed them
  2. Still unclear how this cleared her name
  3. No more Lady Holiday?

Love the shot of them all in the plane

No cages this time

Obviously from the outside, they are not being tossed out of a bottom/cargo level of the plane
