Stupidity: After leaving the church in the painted Studebaker, the duo have Max and Hopper right behind them. Therefore, there's no way the (conveniently) colored car could possibly fool Max and Hopper.

Suggested correction: That was the whole point. It was supposed to be funny.

Other mistake: Whenever Fozzie is driving the Studebaker, the movements of the car don't correspond to the way he moves the steering wheel (he tends to crank it back and forth a lot).

Trivia: Up until the church, a running gag was "Feeling lost? Have you tried Hare Krishna?" When the duo stop at the church, the sign says, "LOST? HAVE YOU TRIED REV. HARRY KRISHNA?"

Question: Does anyone know how the effect of Kermit riding the bicycle was done?

Answer: The closest thing to an answer is here, Martin Becker's obituary. His family states that it was a robotic Kermit on a bicycle. Outside of that, everyone else associated with the movie has been quiet on the subject.http://www.fridaythe13thfilms.com/saga/part5/martinbecker.html.

They used gyros in the wheels - Martin Becker made the first self-driving bike for that movie-now the same tech is used in the self-driving bikes seen in the Netherlands. -Diana Becker, Martin's widow.
