Fozzie's mother comes to see the show, so Fozzie insinuates himself into as many sketches and introductions as possible. After annoying everyone on the show, he looks up to the balcony and notices that his mother is fast asleep.
- A tropical limbo number where various Muppets try to outdo each other... until Kermit tops them all (and pays the consequences backstage).
- Cleo sings "It Don't Mean a Thing" with Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem.
- Pigs in Space (Inspection): Fozzie steals Miss Piggy's uniform, and takes her place on the Swinetrek. Link Hogthrob makes a pass at the ersatz "First Mate Piggy."
- Guest puppeteer Bruce Schwartz performs a bunraku ballerina puppet.
- UK Spot: Rowlf, Baskerville and Afghan Hound sing "Mad Dogs and Englishmen."
- The Swedish Chef (Salad): Cleo and the Chef sing a duet of "You're Just in Love," Cleo in English and the Chef in mock-Swedish.
- Fozzie's Comedy Act (Phrenology): After nearly ruining everyone else's act, Fozzie finally gets his chance, using Kermit as an assistant for a demonstration of phrenology, the art of reading bumps on the head (even if he has to make them himself).
- Cleo sings the melancholic "If," while Bruce Schwartz accompanies her with another puppetry performance.
