  We have recently received a couple great tips on where some secret filming locations for the 1979 Muppet Movie.

It seems that the outdoor scenes, such as the frog fishing scenes, were filmed on the backlot of Disney’s Golden Oak Ranch in Santa Clarita, and most of the interior scenes were created at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank.

Kermit and Fozzie Bear sing The Moving Right Along song while driving in a Studebaker on On CA highway in 68 Salinas, California. The boys then see Big Bird walking to Hollywood just outside “The Farm in Salinas” located in Monterey County at 7 Foster Rd, Salinas, California
