Muppetvision 3D Gags Part 1

Muppetvision 3D is rich in visual gags and jokes that many guests don't take the time to stop and look at and enjoy. It's hard to stop and see them all because Imagineers placed so many jokes in the building that houses Muppetvision. Some jokes are obvious jokes, some are inside jokes, other clever play on words, others satires of something serious that exists and others just plain silly fun.

On the outside of the Muppetvision 3D building you'll find the clock tower and hanging from the minute hand is Gonzo. This is a good preview of what Sam Eagle would call "foolishness".
At the security post right as you walk in you will see this sign which then tells you to...
...look under the key to actually find a key. This is one of the more hidden jokes (you actually have to lift up the mat to find it). This references the Muppets absurd practices.
Lots of jokes have been hidden in this directory, among the better ones the "Insitute of Heckling & Browbeating" by Statler and Waldorf, Patriotic Analysis & Protocol by Sam the Eagle (in suite 1776 of course), Miss Piggy can be found in the "very suite 4444" and the soup of the day is alphabet soup and a myriad of letters are found below it.
This one kind of speaks for itself
As you walk into the building, you will find these doors with some clever jokes that have funny bi-lines for somewhat normal sounding departments.
 
Another good example of how a small touch adds to the attraction.

This is an example of the over-the-top jokes that make it seem very silly.

Stay tuned for part two of this series next week!
