  • Director James Frawley talks with the Muppet performers during the filming of the scene
Neverbefore
TMM-Deleted2

Scenes cut from The Muppet Movie before release.

  • A running gag in the original screenplay featured Statler and Waldorf occasionally popping-up throughout the film to comment on the events as they transpired. Scenes included the pair riding a camel past the Muppets in the desert during "Movin' Right Along".
  • Originally, the song "Never Before, Never Again" was meant to be sung by Johnny Mathis during the fantasy montage, but after he recorded it, Jim Henson decided it would be funnier if Miss Piggy sang it herself.
  • Shots of Kermit and Miss Piggy on a romantic Hawaiian honeymoon were filmed for the "Never Before, Never Again" montage, but were not included in the final film.
  • Statler and Waldorf appear again at The Terrace Restaurant to comment on the events of the film. Photographs from the scene were featured in the storybook of the film.
  • Promotional pictures from the scene of the enlarged Animal in the Ghost Town, show Animal's giant hands coming through the roof. A brief shot of Animal (with his hands) appeared in the extended UK version.
  • An early draft of the script called for a scene in which Doc Hopper accidentally sprays a bottle of maple syrup over his clothes, and gets several tissues stuck to his clothes, making him resemble a giant chicken. Gonzo was to have gotten distracted by the 'chicken', casuing his truck to hit the studebaker.
  • An early draft of the script called for a cameo by Henry Kissinger which never came to fruition. Kissinger appears as an aspiring actor who tries to shoehorn his way into the film in the guises of a southern sheriff, a busboy, an extra in the screening room, and a head carved on Mount Rushmore.
  • A 1987 home video release of this film in the United Kingdom lasted a few minutes longer than in America. Some of the extra scenes included a slightly longer comedy club performance from Fozzie including a longer dance number with Kermit, a short opening and closing speech from Doc Hopper on his French Fried Frogs Legs commercial, a longer conversation between Doc Hopper and Max before they encountered Kermit and Fozzie in the rainbow-painted Studebaker, Dr. Teeth gives a more in-depth reading from the script, and an extra verse of "I Hope That Something Better Comes Along." Also in this version of the film, a different instrumental track is used for Never Before, and the Muppets' conversations during the end credits can be heard more clearly over a quieter, and different closing theme. These extra scenes were also available for the German dub Muppet Movie when it first aired on TV in the mid-1990s, but were later removed when the movie was released on VHS and DVD.
