TRIVIA: Sesame Workshop sued the team behind the film for the tagline, "No sesame. All street," claiming that the film tarnishes their reputation. The suit was rejected on May 30, 2018. Soon after, STX issued a brief statement, "We fluffing love Sesame Street (1969) and we're obviously very pleased that the ruling reinforced what STX's intention was from the very beginning - to honor the heritage of The Jim Henson Company's previous award-winning creations while drawing a clear distinction between any Muppets or Sesame Street characters and the new world Brian Henson and team created. We believe we accomplished that with the very straightforward NO SESAME, ALL STREET tagline. We look forward to continued happytimes as we prepare to release Happytime Murders this summer." Some TV spots for the film started with "From the studio that was sued by Sesame Street..."

Officer Donny, the cop that Edwards says she "should have f***ed" when she had the chance, is played by Melissa McCarthy's real life husband, Ben Falcone.

Directed by Brian Henson, the son of Jim Henson who famously conceived The Muppet Show (1976) and the Muppets.

This is the first theatrical film Brian Henson has directed since Muppet Treasure Island(1996).
