Episode Guide

  • Season 1
    • Michelle Pfeiffer
      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

      Garth Brooks
      Episode 2
      Garth Brooks is a world famous country music singer, but he feels that he has more to offer. He has vowed to Clifford that he won't sing any country music songs for tonight's episode. Instead, he intends to show off his supposed knack for Broadway songs and Shakespeare. Naturally, Clifford and the rest of the Muppets fear disaster.

      Episode 3
      Billy Crystal may be able to juggle sketch after sketch, but there are also supposed to be other guests on hand to help out.

      Episode 4
      John Goodman hopes for a relaxing, memorable show. Well, he winds up getting the latter after saving Andy and Randy, but not in the good way. Now, Miss Piggy's annoying nephews live to serve and won't leave him alone under any circumstances. Needless to say, John finds little help for his situation.

      Cindy Crawford
      Episode 5
      Cindy Crawford arrives for tonight's episode and virtually every guy is taken with her. None more so than Bobo, however, who is head-over-heels in love. Expressing those feelings, though, isn't exactly easy for the big bear. He leaves station security to Cupid, whose arrows make things hectic for Johnny and Sal.

      Episode 6

      Sandra Bullock
      Episode 7
      In television, there is always pressure to keep the ratings up. However, with tonight's episode, there is more pressure than ever. If the ratings drop below fifty, a mad bomber will destroy the studio and everyone in it. While putting on the show, can the Muppets and Sandra Bullock unravel the mystery of the bomber and save the day?
