Although Puppet Saga Inc. — including Noah, Thomas Muller and Daniel — are very good with making the story work well on screen, there are small goofs that make it on screen. Below is a list of these mistakes.
|In the first scene of Kermit singing Rainbow Connection, Noah's arm can be seen coming through the chair.|
|When Kermit is singing Rainbow Connection, Noah's hand can be seen using his arm rod.|
|When Kermit and Thomas are hiding inside, after Thomas jokes about Kermit's eyes being ping-pong balls, Noah's arm can be seen for a split second when he replies.|
|Throughout Kermit's close-up shots, Noah's whole arm can be seen for a second or two at the start. This was due to Thomas Muller being responsible for filming these scenes (no offence).|
|Throughout all of Episode 1, the puppets were new and the holes where the arm rods were put inside Kermit are visible (such as in the shown photo), but we're sewed up by Episode II.|
|During most of Darth Elmo's shots (excluding the first and last), Noah's arm could be seen performing the puppet.|
As the puppeteers were better at hiding themselves and puppet goofs this episode, the following lists mainly continuity errors.
|After "Come and Get Your Love" has been danced to by Darth Daniel, Daniel can be seen filming Darth Elmo in a reflection.|
|When Thomas takes his jumper off (to avoid one sort of continuity error) another one occurs. In one shot, the jumpers in his right hand, and in the next, it's in his left.|
|A more obvious error, Thomas now has a cast on, and did not have a cast during Episode I.|
|While Kermit is getting whacked by Thomas against the window, Thomas can be seen reflected filming. This is not a continuity error, as it is not the character standing there, it is just the camera being seen.|
|In the same part of the episode as the last goof, somehow Kermit can be seen from the outside of the house despite not being hit past the curtains by Thomas.|
|When the Pig comes over just after the last goof, Kermit is in Thomas's right hand, and is suddenly in his left hand in the next shot. Could Thomas possibly make Kermit swap hands so quickly, and if so, why? The answer is no.|
|For a split-second near the start of We're Doing a Sequel, Noah's hand can be seen holding Kermit's arm rod in the bottom right corner.|
|Later in We're Doing A Sequel, Darth Elmo has what appears to be 'Kermit's' voice, but bad quality and bad enough not to notice (which is why the editors didn't).|
|Behind Darth Elmo, the plush/stunt double for him and the puppet for Kermit can be seen lying on the ground.|
|At the end of We're Doing A Sequel, everyone keeps changing places.|
|During the final fight, when Daniel gets Force pushed by Noah, as he falls down he touches the blade on his lightsaber.|
Episode 3 has wrapped up in principal photography, with a few special shots to be filmed. A few goofs is what has been filmed are below.
|Darth Elmo is supposed to be sitting, but in one shot he's not actually sitting.|
|In the corner of this image (and the episode), one can see that Darth Elmo's feet are not touching the floor. (See Muppet Height Relations)|
|During I'm Number One, Noah's arm and part of his head can be seen while performing Darth Elmo.|
|After Darth Elmo finished singing the song, as he walks away Noah's head is visible (circled).|
Muppet Height Relations
One of the big errors people can easily notice in the Puppet Saga is continuity of the characters' heights. For example, Darth Elmo normally appears around (or even above) waist height compared to their human co-stars. However, a full-body look at proportions of the character would suggest they would barely reach a human's knee. also appear in a flexible height range in order to interact comfortably with humans and sets. Noah said once that "If a character like Elmo only appeared at his true height next to a human actor, you’d only see the human actor’s legs when you saw him. That’s an extreme example, but the idea is true for most of the characters. Even so, we do know the relative heights of the characters to each other and make an effort to keep that in mind." The suspended belief that the audience has when watching them allows this flexible reality to exist without major distractions. So even though the puppet's feet would be floating three feet off the ground, the audience still goes along, not questioning, and usually not even perceiving.
