I'm tired of any kind of pig joke,

Uh Piggy, what are

you doing out here?

Oh, Kermit, dear,

Did you know that every time we

have a beautifuI girI on the show,

you forget about me?

- Uh Yeah, well, uh uh

We could have a seaI act on the show,

He tries so desperately

to hide his love for me,

Uh, yeah, but, uh

You promised I was gonna open

the show this week, flipperface,

Uh Piggy, my love, my life,

- Never mind that jazz,

Listen, turkey, Ms. Bergen said

I should stand up for my rights,

Well, OK, OK, you can open the show,

Piggy, You get to open the show,

Oh! What a surprise!

Oh, thank you, my love,

Wire for Kermit the Frog,

Wire for Kermit the Frog,

Oh, are you Kermit the Frog?

- Of course I am,

Wire for you,

Haaa!

Cute, Cute bit,

- Oh,

Haaa! Oh!

I love a good running gag,

There's a great little

"down home country style,

sitting by the fire whittling and fiddling"

song called "Put Another Log on the Fire,"

Here now is that song, and here too

is tonight's very special guest star

Miss Candice Bergen,

Put another log on the fire

Cook me up some bacon and some beans

And go out to the

car and change the tire

Wash my socks and

sew my old blue jeans

Come on baby, you can fill my pipe

And then go fetch my slippers

And boiI me up another pot of tea

Then put another

log on the fire, babe

Come on, tell me

why you're leaving me

Now, don't I let you

wash the car on Sunday?

Don't I warn you

when you're getting fat?

Ain't I gonna take you

fishing with me someday?

Well, a man can't love

a woman more than that

And ain't I always

nice to your kid sister?

Don't I take her

driving every night?

So sit here at my feet 'cause

I like you when you're sweet

And you know it

ain't feminine to fight

So put another log on the fire

Cook me up some bacon and some beans

And go out to the

car and change the tire

Wash my socks and

sew my old blue jeans

Come on, baby, you can fill my pipe

And then go fetch my slippers

And boiI me up another pot of tea

So put another log on the fire, babe

And come and tell me

why you're leaving me

Yeehah!

Letter for Kermit the Frog,

Letter for Kermit the

Frog, Letter for Ker

Oh, are you Kermit the Frog?

You know I am, Fozzie,

Letter for you,

Haaa haa, A letter, Haa,

Funny, Funny,

Haaa,

Someday I'm gonna get him, I don't

know how, but I'm going to get him,

It's not a bad joke, though,

Oh, uh Letter for Scooter the

gofer, Letter for Scooter the gofer,

What's that?

- Are you Scooter the gofer?

Well, you know I am, chief,

- There's a letter on the desk here for you,

Sorry, I'll have to read it later, You see,

I'm really busy getting stuff for Miss Bergen,

See ya,

- Haaa!

Haaa! Haaa!

Funny!

Hey, when I went to schooI,

I was the teacher's pet,

What's the matter?

Couldn't she afford a dog?

Oh!

If the queen of England was free tomorrow

night, would you take her to dinner?

Sure bet, Course I would,

Well, she can't make

it, so how about me?

You know, you dance like Rogers,

- Oh, Ginger Rogers?

No, Roy Rogers,

Hey, Mildred, would you mind

if I popped the question?

Oh, of course not, George,

Thanks,

Oh, shut up,

It's very nice to have you

with us on the paneI, Clara,

OK, uh It's time

once again, friends,

time once again to raise the

intellectuaI leveI of our program,

And our subject tonight is,

"Does traveI broaden the mind?"

Our paneI tonight consists of Mildred

Hockstadder, MA, BA, DA and DUMB,

Charmed, I'm sure,

- Oh, brother,

Miss Piggy, noted chanteuse

and black belt holder,

Mm-hm, Kissy,

kissy, - Ugh!

Sam the Eagle, our resident grouch,

- Let's move it along, Frog,

OK, And our special guest panelist Miss

Clara Cartwell, well-known traveI agent

and author of the best-selling

book, Europe on $5,000 a Day.

No, no, no, It's called

Europe on $50 a Day.

The book itself,

however, costs $5,000,

Hm, Hm, Hm,

And probably well worth it, too,

- Oh, yes, Yes,

Yes, Pictures and everything, I bet,

- Oh, yes, The works,

OK, but let's get back to our subject,

which is "Does traveI broaden the mind?"

Miss Cartwell,

Well, as I write in my new

book, Nowhere on Nothing a Day,

traveling is the most

broadening experience possible,

Well, Piggy here hasn't traveled at

all, and she's broader than any of us,

Watch it, needle-neck, or you won't

be on the paneI, you'll be under it!

OK, Ladies, please controI yourselves,

- Excuse me, 'Scuse me, 'Scuse me,

Carla, let me apologize

for those weirdos,

I myself am a world traveler,

Is that right? Where have you been?

Persia,

I bought a rug there, Mm,

- Well, I'm glad you're not wearing it,

I like bald eagles,

No, uh

- Oh, dear,

Not that kind of rug,

Yes, OK, Well, I think we're

getting away from the subject,

which was "Does traveI

broaden the mind?"

Ah, Well, absolutely

no doubt about it,

For example, I had a friend

who never went anywhere,

lived in the same

town for over 30 years,

She was so unsophisticated, she thought

Marcello Mastroianni was an Italian soup,

To laugh is to live!

You mean it isn't an Italian soup?

And he calls himself a world traveler?

- No, no, wait,

I have been to restaurants where I have

ordered Marcello Mastroianni and gotten it,

Really? What did you get?

A swarthy, good-looking

man sitting in a bowI,

I always send him back,

What do you get when you

order a Russian dressing?

Rudolf Nureyev putting on his tights?

I faiI to see the humor in that,

- Oh, I love it,

Burst his balloon,

honey, he's so pompous,

Balloons! Speaking of balloons, either

let some air out, or go on a diet,

You're knocking me off the paneI,

I'll knock you out of the

theater in a second, You, you

OK, ladies, Wait, Please, Please,

We have a special guest with us,

I think you'd better put

your best face forward,

And whose face is Porker

here going to borrow?

That does it, Why

Hiii! Hii!

Wait! Well, I guess that

does it for our paneI,

I'm sorry about that, Miss Cartwell,

- Oh, no, It's been very broadening,

Do you really like me without my rug?

- Yes, I do, Are you busy later?

What? No, but I could, uh

We could wing out somewhere,

Join us next week, when our topic will be "Air pollution

- a modern myth?"

time, but you only have 20 seconds,

All right, hit it!

It's not where you

start, it's where you finish

A hundred-to-one shot,

they call him a klutz

Can outrun the favorite

all he needs is the guts

Ten seconds,

- # Your finaI return will not diminish

- # And you can be the cream of the crop

- Five seconds, Four,

It's not where you

start, it's where you finish

And I'm gonna finish on time

Nearly,

Cheese,

Got that?

- Yeah, Um

Kermit, do you think you could

do something a little more candid?

Uh Sure, Let's see,

How's that? Hm?

Well, it's not exactly candid,

Kermit, if you know what I mean,

Oh, OK, Yes, Candid for Candice,

Frog in repose,

What I was thinking was

something a little more naturaI,

More naturaI? Let's see,

What have we got? Well

Make sure you get my good side, though,

- Which one? Which side is the good side?

I think it's this side, It

might be this side over here,

Or maybe I dunno,

What do you think?

Well, I think that Head-on,

Why don't we try one head-on?

Just naturally, -

Head-on? OK, You know

Although my profile has

been compared to Barrymore,

Yeah, EtheI Barrymore,

Sweetums, if you don't mind,

Candice is trying to take my picture,

Oh, yeah? Is that a good camera there?

- Yeah, That's a terrific camera,

This is an 85-21 0 macro zoom

lens with the finest Swiss optics,

This is a great camera,

- Oh,

Bleurgh!

Look at that face

Look at those eyes

As wise and as deep as the sea

Look at that nose

It shows what a nose should be

As for your smile

It's IyricaI, friendly

and warm as a summer's day

That face is just a miracle

Where could I ever find words to say

The way that it makes me happy

Whatever the time or place?

I'll find in no book

What I find when I look at that face

Hm,

Interesting,

Rather definitive, yes?

Of course, Why not?

Inspired, but by what?

The way that it makes me happy

Whatever the time or place

throat, I want it to go away,

Oh, Well, why didn't you say so?

Open up your mouth, Aha, Aha,

Aha!

I see the problem immediately,

- What is it, Dr, Bob?

This man has a frog in his throat,

- Are you certain?

Positive,

Very funny, Just see if this dumb doctor

sketch ever gets on the show again,

And so Dr. Bob has found a patient

with a case of ingrown TV-show host.

Tune in next week, when

you'll hear Dr. Bob say.

Oh, let's clean up around here,
