    • QUOTES (2)

      • Rich Little: (imitating Miss Piggy) Hey! Watch what you do to my frog, Bacon Hips!
        Miss Piggy: Hiiiiy-ahhhh!
        (Miss Piggy and Rich karate chop each other at the same time, they then crash into the Orcherstra pit.)

      • Kermit: A dancing chicken act? Gonzo, I've never heard of anything as ridiculous as a dancing chicken.
        Gonzo: How about a talking frog?

    • NOTES (4)

      • Dave Goelz's ad-libbed line for Gonzo concerning a live chicken's "nice legs" was the start of the character's obsession with poultry (and other livestock) and the origin behind his "girlfriend" Camilla.

      • This episode marks the debut of puppeteer Louise Gold, though she would not recieve credit for her work until the third season.

      • Lenny the Lizard looks a lot like a creepy version of Kermit and takes his role at the last part of "Inchworm"--trembling with fear before getting eaten by the monster whos' nose he's been bitting.

      • This episode marks the first of three appearances of gossip columnist Fleet Scribbler. He was initially unveiled at a reception for the British press, who instantly took a liking to him. However, the writers found him too abbrasive to work with and ultimately dropped the character in the third season.
