Director James Bobin felt the line was too mean and had it edited from the film.[1] Rowlf also suggests the movie be about "a lonely dog, and one night he sees something he should never have seen, and he has to live with a terrible secret." Kermit thinks it sounds "a little dark."
MMW extended cut 0.06.37 Peter Serafanowicz.png

Scooter also reacts to Beauregard as the driver.

MMW extended cut 0.43.16 you can't make me go number two.png
Before the performance in Spain, Constantine refuses to go on at first because of the stage fright he suffered in Berlin. He argues about this with Dominic in the bathroom while Scooter listens at the door. According to director James Bobin, "We cut one scene between Ricky Gervais and Constantine. Obviously if you have two characters called 'Number One' and 'Number Two,' there are going to be certain jokes. And there was a scene where they get stuck in a toilet together... it lasted for about ten minutes! It killed us on the set, but didn't make the movie. It is on the DVD though!"[1]
An appearance by the full-body monsters during the "El Muppet Show" theme song is cut.

MMW extended cut 1.10.32 is that a scarf.png
After Dominic finds Constantine knitting and asks how they spin the fact that Fozzie, Walter, and Animal have eluded their grasp, Dominic asks if that's a scarf he's knitting. He guesses that it's a present for someone, but Constantine says for whom is not important. Dominic smirks. While it's never said in the film, Constantine revealed in an interview with The Muppet Mindset that the scarf was for Dominic.[4]
While telling the Muppets that Walter and Fozzie have quit the Muppets, Janice said she cried when Walter joined them in the last movie. After Rizzo and Robin the Frog leave, Dominic says the show will be better without them, to which Statler replies, "Couldn't get any worse!"

Danny Trejo performs a stand-up comedy routine in the Gulag Annual Revue. He tells a joke about a short fortune teller who escapes from prison (a small medium at large); he wears a tie and punctuates his jokes with a "wocka wocka" similar to Fozzie Bear.

Trailer shots

Screenshots from the trailers where the intended use in the film (if any) is currently unknown.


Due to the nature of their composition -- the actors shot in front of a matte screen -- these scenes were most likely meant for an alternative version of the "Together Again" finale (the final version using the Gulag wall gag, placed digitally), or for the sole purpose of promoting the film with teaser trailers.
