Things That Fly is a 30-minute sing-along special released direct-to-video by Jim Henson Video in 1996. In the special, Kermit the Frog and a young boy Muppet, Lindy, explore different varieties of things that fly in an effort to return a young, lost alien named Norberta to her home planet. The video is a companion to Muppets on Wheels.

Filming locations include Balboa Park in San Diego, California Museum of Science & Industry and Griffith Park in Los Angeles, and Van Nuys Airport.
