Red is jealous and tired when everyone pays attention to Mokey's poems, so she decides to change herself to be more like Mokey like letting her hair down, wearing a robe-like sweater, and gathering radishes from The Gorgs' Garden.
Meanwhile, Doc and Sprocket get invitations to the Society's Costume Party and decide what to wear at the costume party.
According to Boober's book of diseases, the symptoms of bacterial sufferosis are funny hair and a weird voice.
In The Hub reruns, the part where Boober sees Wembley sleeping and snoring and says, "And now your voice is weird! This is the worst case of sufferosis I've ever seen" is cut.
At Muppetfest, Karen Prell said that she originally wanted to play Mokey and was disappointed that she was cast as Red. "That was the great thing about Jim...He saw the potential in you that sometimes you didn't see yourself." Early on in the series, Red imitated Mokey, and Karen got to see how really different they were: "That's the show when I discovered who Red was. From then on, it was clear sailing, and it was one of the best things in my life."
French version: Doc is rehearses for his upcoming stage performance as a swashbuckling Cyrano de Bergerac. His constant rehearsal bores Croquette. Frustrated, Doc asks Croquette who he'd like to see him play, offering Tarzan as an option. Croquette naturally wants to see him portray a dog. The postcard is identical to the North American version.
