  • The Sweedish performance group Mummenschanz guest stars in this episode. Meanwhile Miss Piggy finds a love letter posted on her dressing room door. She thinks the letter is from Kermit, but she soon finds out she is mistaken.

    This episode starts out on the right note with Scooter and Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem's excellent rendition of "Hey, Mr. Bassman." The rest of the epsiode does not disappoint either. The story of Gonzo's crush on Miss Piggy is one of the most hysterical of the first season. Also Muppett News delivers another hilarious newsflash (as usual). It will have you laughing throughout. The ballroom sequence is another reliable sketch and it delivers in this episode as well. The performances by Mummenschanz are also very entertaining to watch. This episode is certainly one of season one's most memorable.
