There's a Kermit puppet on display at the Smithsonian.
Muppet pies were usually made from Crazy Foam-a kid's bath product.
Jim Henson performed the life size Muppet on the sketch "Put Another Log on the Fire" by crouching under the chair.
Candice and Edgar Bergen are the only parent-child team to appear on "The Muppet Show."
Miss Piggy: Kermit, dear, did you know that every time we have a beautiful girl on the show, you forget about me?
Kermit: Yeah, well, we could have a seal act on the show, Piggy, and I might forget about you.
This episode was taped from 8/10-11/1976.
"It's Not Where You Start" is the UK spot. It was written by Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields. It's from the musical Seesaw.
Fozzie's joke: Hey - Question: What has 1000 legs but can't walk? 500 pairs of pants!
Gonzo's gong: Gonzo puts down his mallet and reveals he's wearing a boxing glove and gives the gong a triumphant left hook.
Fozzie's mean spirited practical jokes he plays on Kermit throughout this episode, are so unlike the famous friendship between Kermit and Fozzie known today. The more sophisticated Fozzie Bear would never treat Kermit that way.
