In typical Muppet style, this movie is full of slapstick antics and physical comedy, including animal attacks, gunshots, roughhousing, car chases, pies in faces, and self-defense karate chops.

A more serious sense of peril exists in a scene where a character is kidnapped and held hostage, and another is threatened with having his mind erased by an electrical-shock-producing machine operated by a man with a German accent who makes a couple of Jewish references. In another scene, a group of armed men and a hired assassin engage in target practice before confronting their intended victim. Romance is introduced into the script when Miss piggy falls in love-at -first-sight with the web-footed hero (amounting to lavish daydreams and a couple of kisses). Later, Kermit and Rolf the Dog bemoan the frustration of not being able to live with or without women. An experimental drug cause a creature to grow unusually large and an alcoholic beverage is served in a restaurant.
