There's a problem with the water pipes, so the Muppet Babies imagine themselves as opera-singing superheroes and figure out what is wrong.
- Baby Kermit, Baby Fozzie, Baby Rowlf, and Baby Bean Bunny portray Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Baby Piggy appears as a Wonder Woman-style valkyrie, Baby Scooter and Baby Skeeter play the Wonder Twins, and Baby Gonzo portrays Batman.
- The episode's title is a play on the title of the nursery rhyme Sing a Song of Sixpence.
- In an interview with Hank Saroyan, this episode was intended to pique young viewers' interest in opera from The Barber of Seville, Carmen, Rigoletto, William Tell Overture, and Dance of the Hours. This episode required a great deal of extra recording studio work for nine minutes of music compared to the usual one minute of music per episode. Saroyan and Jim Henson had discussed producing this episode, but had not because of cost. However, Saroyan was determined to produce this episode as an unofficial tribute to Henson.
