It was past our bedtime, but we were allowed to stay up for the Muppet Show.

Bert's ad libs are even better on my Sesame Street album. I also found and sang Lime and Coconut with Kermit, and worried that Cookie would never find his cookie again. I know all the words to this one, too. Perhaps you didn't know how handsome Harry Belafonte used to be, or how good-natured.

He had it easier than Rita Moreno, though. Miss Piggy shows me how to make myself clear, should there be occasion.

On a more contemporary note, this combination salvaged the movie and justified the song for me. I wouldn't have thought of it.

We watch the Muppets (now out on DVD) with our 2-year old a couple times every week. His favorite is Miss Piggy. My favorite is Beaker.

The best episodes: Harry Belafonte, Paul Simon (though he has no sense of humor, the music is great), Linda Ronstadt, Julie Andrews, and Paul Williams. But nearly every episode is highly entertaining.

Oooh - Muppets! Muppets! The first two seasons are available on DVD now, and it's very important everyone buy those so that the last two seasons also get released. Also: Muppets!

(Not my most insightful comment ever, but then again - Muppets!)

I had forgotten the adorableness of the deadly black tarantula.
