In The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984), Kermit and his friends go to New York City to get their musical on Broadway only to find it's a more difficult task than they anticipated.

As with The Muppet Movie (1979), this film can be read as an allegory of Jim Henson's career. Like his creator, Kermit gains local popularity performing during his college years, decides to try his luck in New York City, struggles, takes an unlikely detour into the world of advertising, then gets his big break.

This film marks the first appearance of The Muppet Babies (1984) characters, whose cartoon premiered two months after this film's release.

In an interview, Juliana Donald (Jenny) recalled how filming of the jogging scene in the park was temporarily delayed by a camera problem. In wide eyed amazement, a little boy passing by approached and started talking to Kermit the Frog, oblivious to Jim Henson operating him. Despite the surrounding commotion of technicians trying to fix the camera issue, Jim started interacting with the boy. Moments later, Jim found himself doing an impromptu performance with Kermit for an entire group of children who had gathered around to watch. Juliana said, "It was so memorable to me because time just stopped. It was a wonderfully magical moment where you experience someone's true joy with their work."

Sign of the times? Speaking on the film's MPAA rating, Jim Henson said, "There have been only four G movies this year. Isn't that amazing? I would never do a Muppet movie that wasn't a G. It's said that the G rating has a stigma. Kids don't want to see kiddie movies anymore." 27 years after this film and 21 years after Henson's death, the Muppets comeback film, The Muppets (2011) was rated PG.
