EKA Episode 0597

When Maurice, a hapless casanova, (Jim Henson) puts an Pumpkin Anything Muppet woman's (Frank Oz) head together, he tells her that he loves her, but it turns out she doesn't love him. He then proceeds to take her head apart, bit by bit, as he sings "I Want to Hold Your Ear" (as well as eyes, nose, tooth, and hair). After she walks off in a huff, he notices to his shock that the parts he set aside have attached themselves to the tablecloth (Jerry Nelson), who thinks he's kinda cute.

For the record market, this song was recorded by Bert. He sings of his affection for his girlfriend, who would fall apart every time she saw him.
