Why is The Great Muppet Caper rated G? The Great Muppet Caper is rated G by the MPAA

Property damage, law-breaking and slapstick violence punctuate this caper, but are always depicted as silly and harmless. Robberies and a gun pulled during a heist are also part of the plot. Sexual content is limited to costumes, a comment about infidelity and Miss Piggy kissing Kermit. Name-calling and one term of deity used as an expletive, some social drinking, as well as a character that smokes, are the only other concerns.
