Walter's "Gaffer" comment, still barely legible.

Disney's "FxFactory Pro Trial" editing goof.

  • During Robin's live stream of the show, reactions of a plethora of Muppets pop up as likes and comments. Pepe the King Prawn posts an image of himself by the pool, starting a hashtag with a notebook screen reading "#HurryUpScooper."
  • The end credits list every cat's name appearing in Scooter's "Live Cat," with Walter commenting "Maybe Gaffer shows up!"
  • When the episode was first released, the creative team left in an editing goof, appearing several times throughout Miss Piggy's Lifesty(le) segment, with a thin font overlaying the screen, reading "FxFactory Pro Trial."
