Camilla is a sentient chicken and Gonzo can understand her bawks, so everyone calm their "jokes".

There is a skeleton in the "western" scene.

No animals actually die, but frog legs are regularly discussed which is more impactful because Kermit is right there. There is also a frog hunter after Kermit, and they threaten to kill Miss Piggy as well.

No, but there is heavy mention of a fast food restaurant that sells frog legs, and it distressing to kermit. Should be okay for most kids since it is often played for laughs

Kermit is not tortured at all, he's just tied up. The scientist is later attached to the machine but it does not seem to be painful so it's really not torture then, either.

One sequence involves a character dangling at a great height, but he survives without injury (and never seems frightened, if that makes a difference to how you experience it).

There are a couple of brief appearances by the Muppet character Crazy Harry, who never actually hurts anyone but is definitely based on the harmful stereotype.

The setup is that the Muppets have made a movie about how they got started. Statler and Waldorf arrive to heckle that movie, and all the others are already there. Then you basically watch it with them. That movie-within-the-movie breaks its fourth wall constantly, but it's the Muppet audience that is addressed, not the "real" audience, until the very end of the credits, when Animal tells you to go home.

Yes, after Gonzo is introduced he crashes into Kermit, however this is done in a comedic and exaggerated fashion. Nobody is hurt, Gonzo is only a little angry about his car, but he soon feels better.

Miss Piggy imagines her future life with Kermit and he is seen drowning while she poses next to the water. It's played for laughs and imaginary, but may still be distressing.
