This is the first theatrical The Muppets
movie since The Muppets Take Manhattan
(1984) to include the voice of creator Jim Henson
. Although Henson's characters are voiced in the film by other Muppeteers, his (uncredited) renditions can be heard in archive clips of The Muppet Show
(1976), including Kermit's introduction and a snippet of the song "Mah Na Mah Na". See more

However, the same building can be repeatedly seen outside the office's windows when Richman performs his song. The scene was actually shot inside one of the towers of the nearby City National Plaza.
