The babies try to pull out Fozzie's loose tooth so he won’t have to go to the dentist.

Plot

Baby Fozzie gets a loose tooth, but he's afraid to go to the dentist. The Babies have bad notions of what dentists are like, particularly Kermit, who pictures himself as a mad scientist who kidnaps people in order to extract their teeth in order to create a Frankenstein-style "Toothmonster". The other Babies try to find ways to help Fozzie avoid going to the dentist, but after he goes and decides that it's not scary, the other babies want to go.

Notes

  • One way the Babies try to remove Fozzie's loose tooth is by tying it to a moving toy train. The train goes out of control and all over the nursery. Gonzo then notices the toy train coming towards him, and we see a live-action clip of an old-fashioned steam locomotive coming towards the camera with a star on its front. This train clip would be reused in "Piggy's Hyper-Activity Book", where Baby Gonzo runs away from the train on a pogo stick during the "Music is Everywhere" song.
