Trivia: When Sandra is in the interrogation room, the moment when she uncrosses her legs and "flashes" her genitals to the other characters is an almost shot-for-shot recreation of an infamous scene from the film "Basic Instinct", in which Sharon Stone does the exact same thing.


Trivia: The Jim Henson Company created a new studio specifically for this film - "Henson Alternative." This was to help clarify that the film was aimed an an adult audience, and to distance it from the Jim Henson Company's more family-friendly material.


Trivia: Over 120 puppets were used during filming, with 40 created specifically for the film.


Trivia: Was originally formally announced in 2008, with production and concept artwork being displayed online and on several entertainment news programs. The rights traded hands repeatedly after, and the project became stuck in development hell until it was released in 2018 - ten years after it was first announced.


Trivia: The original concept and story treatment was written several decades before the film was released. It was bouncing around at the Jim Henson workshop for years, though they were apprehensive to produce it due to its adult themes.


Continuity mistake: A cop walks up to the Lieutenant and tells him the press is here. He says "wonderful" facing that direction. But in the next shot when Phil is asking if he's free to go, the Lieutenant is instantly facing towards him. (00:12:20)
