The opening scene of this beloved film, Kermit, the archetypal lovable loser, leaves for Hollywood pedaling his classy roadster, complete with wicker basket. Astounding to young eyes previously used to seeing Kermit only seated or flying limply through the air, the bicycle scene was one of the first to show an apparently autonomous Muppet. It ends pretty quickly, though, when Kermit is distracted by a billboard advertising Doc Hopper's Fried Frog Legs and crashes into a steamroller that crushes his bicycle. "It's a good thing frogs can hop, otherwise I'd be gone with the Schwinn." Sheesh.
The Great Muppet Caper (1981) has a scene that, at first, might seem to violate The Law. Kermit and Miss Piggy ride through a park and sing "Side by Side." The Great Muppet Caper, however, is set in London, a pop-culture-appropriate setting for adult puppets to enjoy bicycling (see Clause B).
