Anachronisms 

in the opening scene, when the production crew wraps up filming the closing number of the first film, a Panavision Panaflex camera can be seen. The Muppets was actually filmed with Red One cameras that were supplied by Otto Nemenz International.

Character error 

In the mirror scene, Kermit's and Constantine's boutonnieres are not "reflections." Both characters have them on their left lapels.

When Constantin proposes to Miss Piggy, he asks if she would like "to become Mrs. Piggy... or rather, Mrs. The Frog?" "The" is Kermit's middle name (Kermit the Frog ), not part of a double-barreled surname (Kermit The-Frog).

Continuity 

During the "I Can Give You What You Want" musical number, Constantine holds hands with Miss Piggy as they spin around: Constantine is spinning to his left, thus Piggy should also be spinning to her left, yet she spins to her right.

Errors in geography 

When Sam Eagle and Jean-Pierre Napoleon met for the first time, the caption states "Interpol headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland." Interpol HQ is in fact located in Lyons, France.

Factual errors 

When the train gets to Berlin, the caption says "Hauptbahnhof station". Since "Hauptbahnhof" already means central station, the caption actually says "central station station", i.e. the added "station" is totally unnecessary. "Berlin central station" would have been perfectly applicable to name the station where the Muppets arrive.

The sign in front of the (fictional) national treasure museum in Berlin contains several mistakes. It reads "Nationale Schatz Museum", which seems to be translated literally. First of all, national treasure would correctly translate to "Nationales Kulturgut" (national cultural asset). In combination with museum (same word in German), the order would change to "Museum des nationalen Kulturguts" (in order to avoid the ugly dash construction "Nationales-Kulturgut-Museum", which would rise ambiguities since it is not clear whether the Kulturgut or the Museum is national). Further, the grammar of "Nationale" is wrong. One would say "Das nationale Schatzmuseum" but since you wouldn't use an article with that, it would be reduced to "Nationales Schatzmuseum" (mind the 's' at the end of "Nationales"). In this form, it would be the museum that is national, not the "Schatz" (treasure). To sum it up: The sign is a very sloppy try to imitate a real name and is supposedly unintended funny for German-speaking viewers.

At about an hour and 2 minutes into the movie, there is a brief view of the Moon. The Moon is shown reversed rather than the way it should be when looked at with the unaided eye.

At 1:02:12 in the movie, a Muppet character is looking at the moon through a window. The image of the moon is shown reversed (commonly seen this way in a telescope), not the "naked eye" view.

Revealing mistakes 

When Dominic is suspended in the room with the Crown Jewels, none of his ropes trigger the laser alarms.
