After seeing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the babies decide to make their own Snow White. Piggy is upset that she loses a coin toss against Skeeter for the role of Snow White, and Piggy is left with the role of the Wicked Queen. Piggy acts diva like and thinks Skeeter is too ugly to be Snow White. The Muppets put on their own show, including a weird twist that only Gonzo could devise (namely the Seven Dwarves owning a beauty salon and hiring Snow White as an apprentice). Queen Piggy disguises herself as a kindly old lady who comes to the salon while Skeeter is alone, then scares Snow White into shock. The whole thing comes to an end with an argument over Kermit as the Prince kissing Skeeter (Snow White), which Kermit defuses by pointing out the show must go on and him kissing Skeeter is for the sake of their production.

Trivia

  • Although listed here as the sixth episode of the second season, it was actually the third episode to air, as part of the third and final aired episode of Muppets, Babies and Monsters. It aired along with Little Muppet Monsters: The Great Boodini. A brief clip from the episode, featuring Bunsen and a wolf, led into the Muppets, Babies and Monsters title sequence.
  • In the McDonald's Video, the scene from where Rowlf Doggy tells Skeeter Snow White she can stay at the beauty salon to where Queen Piggy scares Skeeter with a surprise box is cut.
  • A later episode would have another Muppet production about The African Queen, where Scooter nervously ends it by saying he is not sure about marrying Piggy like Charlie married the woman in the actual story. Piggy handles that much better, probably learning her lesson from Kermit and Skeeter in Snow White.
  • This episode features some references to the Walt Disney animated version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as Piggy's appearence as the Evil Queen resembles the one in the Disney film.
