  • Episode Description
  • The Muppets get a new show on the KMUP network. They even have a new host, Clifford (solely because everyone else was smart enough to run off). In need of a big star for the quickly approaching first episode, Clifford accidentally books both Michelle Pfeiffer and Miss Piggy. Even worse, he doesn't tell either actress of his mistake – leading to trouble on and off stage. Sketches: "Bay of Pigswatch", "Muppet Match-Up", "Great Moments in Elvis History", "Sound of Music"moreless

    • Waldorf: Nurse, there's something wrong with this TV. Statler: What's that? Waldorf: It's on.

    • (Clifford is convincing the rest of the muppets to feel good about the new show) Nigel: 10 seconds! Clifford: Yo yo yo! And no matter what happens, have fun! Nigel: We're on the air!! We're on the air!! (as all the muppets are running and screaming everywhere, Clifford takes it calmly, and locks himself in the supply cabinet) Kermit: Clifford! Clifford! That's the supply cabinet! Clifford: I know that, it's a nice supply cabinet too. Nice and quiet. Let's cue the announcer, shall we?

    • Clifford: The only thing that's gonna save us now, Rizzo, is if a world famous super-star walks through that door. (that door opens on Clifford, knocking him off) Rizzo: Or that door.

    • Gonzo: Clifford, your problems are solved, I've got an act thats gonna knock your socks off! Clifford: Well, put them on, man. Gonzo: Your socks? Clifford: No, the act!

    Notes (3)

    • Clifford's intro: The show that's going to change the face of television, and make it look a little something like this... (one of the Koozbanian dancers pops up, laughs at the audience, and then kisses Clifford before running off stage)

    • Nigel the director looks a lot like a lighter-colored version of Droop.

    • Andy and Randy from Muppet Theater appear, but instead of brothers, they're Miss Piggy's nephews.
