4. According to the Director, human actors walk among the Muppets on elevated planks which are approximately how wide?
6 inches
1 foot
2 feet
This is a trick question; the Director states that human actors who perform with Muppets, in filming, walk around on the ground or floor, just like when they are filmed for any other movie or television show.

5. Who suggested producing an adaptation of A Christmas Carol to the Director?
Miles Goodman
Bill Haber
Jim Henson
This is a trick question; producing an adaptation of A Christmas Carol was the Director's idea; no one had ever suggested it to him.

6. Why are most Muppets lefthanded?
Most Muppeteers are righthanded, and use their right hands inside the body and/or head of the Muppets, leaving their left hand free to operate one of the Muppet's hands.
Muppets are created by the Creative Artists Agency, which is run by members of the illuminati, which idolizes sinister, lefthanded people.
As far as the Director knows, this is just a coincidence.
This is a trick question; most Muppets are righthanded.

7. How does the Director say that Muppets blow out candles?
A device is located off screen, which sends a puff of air to blow out the candle, just as the Muppet appears to blow it out.
This is all done via C.G.I. (Computer Generated Images).
The candles are really kerosene lamps; someone, off screen, turns them off, just as the Muppet appears to blow out the candle.
This is a trick question; the Director never mentions candles, in his audio commentary for this film.

8. What does the Director say about Muppets whose feet are shown in films?
They are more expensive to make, because it costs more to make an entire Muppet, than just the top half of a Muppet.
They are usually short, like Kermit, so the Muppeteer can insert his or her hand in their "behind," leaving the legs to dangle in front.
They are radio-operated.
This is a trick question; Muppets' feet are never seen, because Muppets don't have feet.

9. According to the Director, some Muppets are which of the following?
rod puppets
marionettes
both of the above
This is a trick question; the Director emphatically states that the technology used to operate Muppets are dark secrets, kept by the illuminati, the divulgence of which is punishable by death.

10. Which character(s) does the Director specifically identify as a "rod puppet"?
The Ghost of Christmas Past
The Ghost of Christmas Present
The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come
none of the above
