    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When watching Wotcher (Knocked 'Em in the Old Kent Road you can see the muppeteer's (most likely Frank Oz's and a right-hander) arm sockets throught the song

      • It's interesting that when Statler and Waldorf do like Fozzie's act, he didn't spend a portion of the episode trying to think of ways to outsmart the hecklers.

    • QUOTES (2)

    • NOTES (2)

      • The "Monster Eats Machine" sketch, where the Lunch Counter Monster devours a talking machine, is a remake of a sketch originally used in an IBM training film and featured in a 1967 episode of the Ed Sullivan Show. In both previous airings, the sketch featured a character who would later become famous as the Cookie Monster on Sesame Street (the Muppet Show version was slightly shorter). Cookie Monster would later make a cameo in the fifth season episode with Marty Feldman.

      • Marks the most prominent role of the character Fleet Scribbler, who first appeared in the episode with Rich Little.
