Cold Opening Beard says the band have pretaped a song. Kermit is happy to run it as the opening number. Flash is late. Clifford says he sometimes has trouble with punctuality. Flash, who mumbles and is difficult to understand, came around back to avoid his groupies, a group of girls who mob him. He tells Kermit to roll the opening titles.

  • This is one of the few episodes that Frank Oz performed in.
  • Judging from an airing taped in Nova Scotia, the cold opening was not included in Canadian broadcasts. (Also, all cold openings are not present in the half-hour Jim Henson Show versions).
  • In the half-hour Jim Henson Show version, Jim talks about the groupies with the Lion in his intro.
