  • This episode is COMPLETELY different and unlikable.

    1.0
    They should NEVER have used Harvey Korman on The Muppet Show. In fact, Robin Williams, a MUCH better comic, should've been on The Muppet Show. He was announced, but they TOTALLY forgot to bring him on the show.



    Harvey never did ANY numbers at ALL on The Muppet Show, hostility, ugliness I tell ya. The closing number isn't funny at all, and the episode is NOT fun to watch. The only thing I like in this episode is Fozzie's comedy act. I call Harvey Korman "the Least likable comic to EVER appear on The Muppet Show".



    Use Robin Williams!! No Korman!!moreless

    • Kermit: Okay, time once again for that furry, fuzzy, funnyman, fabulous, freewheeling, fast and frantic Fozzie Bear!
      Fozzie: Hey, hey, hey hey, w-wait, wait wait wait wait, froggy...
      Kermit: What?
      Fozzie: ...not so fast. Tonight, I am going to use your assistance.
      Kermit: Yeah?
      Fozzie: Yes, sir! You and I are going to tell the world's funniest joke.
      Kermit: Is that right?
      Fozzie: This is all spontaneous. Unrehearsed. Right, froggy?
      Kermit: It's unrehearsed, yes.
      Fozzie: Okay, okay, okay. Now, frog of my heart...
      Kermit: Yeah?
      Fozzie: ...you will just wait until I say the word "hear". When you hear me say the word "hear," you will rush up to me and say, "Good grief! The comedian's a bear!"
      Kermit: Good grief! The comedian's a bear!
      Fozzie: Check!
      Kermit: When you say the word "hear"?
      Fozzie: Right.
      Kermit: Gotcha.
      Fozzie: Okay. (Kermit goes off stage) Now then, hiya hiya hiya! You're a wonderful looking audience! It's a pleasure to be here!
      Kermit: Good grief! The comedian's a bear!
      Fozzie: Not yet!
      Kermit: You just said "here".
      Fozzie: That was the wrong "here"!
      Kermit: Which is the right "here"?
      Fozzie: The other "hear"! Go go go, go. (Kermit goes back off stage) Okay. Hey! Hey, folks, this is a story you gotta love to hear.
      Kermit: Good grief! The comedian's a bear!
      Fozzie: Will you stop that?!
      Kermit: But you said "hear"!
      Fozzie: Not that "hear"!
      Kermit: Well, which "hear"?!
      Fozzie: Another "hear"!
      Kermit: How'm I gonna know?!
      Fozzie: You'll know when you hear!
      Kermit: Good grief! The comedian's a bear!
      (Both yell out nonsense syllables and then calm down)
      Fozzie: Alright, alright, listen...
      Kermit: What?
      Fozzie: You will know when I point to you. (Kermit walks off grumbling) Alright, don't grumble. (clears throat) Say, a funny thing happened to me on the way to the theater. At the stage door, I passed a bunch of Muppet fans and suddenly I hear...
      (pause, Fozzie points to Kermit)
      Kermit: Good grief, the comedian's a bear.
      Fozzie: (in an Italian dialect) No, he's-a not! He's-a wearin' a neck-a-tie!

    • Waldorf: The show didn't exactly lay an egg.
      (A Muppet chicken appears)
      Chicken: Bawk.
      Stantler: Wanna bet?
