TMSDeleted-Kerm

Kermit in a deleted musical number from season one of The Muppet Show.

Minor songs proposed, without much context, to be performed in Muppet productions, or songs written for unfinished projects with little information on them.

The Muppet Show[1]

  • "All I Do Is Dream of You": To be performed by the Muppet monsters to an unspecific female guest star.
  • "Seasons in the Sun": A magical scarf act by Fozzie Bear and Gonzo goes awry when the scarves come alive and take over singing the song.
  • "Six Lessons from Madame La Zonga": To be sung by a female guest star to Kermit and Fozzie. The song would start small and build to a large conga line.
  • Two types of serenades, "Trumpet Serenade" and "Woodpecker Serenade," would be performed by the Snerfs and some woodpeckers, respectively.
  • "Until It's Time for You to Go": Phyllis Diller would sing the song to Kermit, as he tries to leave to introduce her.
  • "Up, Up and Away": A proposed version featured Muppets singing from chroma-key hot air balloons.
  • "Without My Walking Stick": To performed by Fozzie Bear, accompanied by Rowlf the Dog on piano.
  • Songs proposed to be performed by the Country Trio include "Johnny Be Good" [sic], "Another Saturday Night," "Good Old Mountain Dew," "Tiger By the Tail," "In the Summertime," and "You'll Never Get Away."
  • Musical numbers proposed to be performed alongside a guest star include "It's Never Too Late to Fall in Love," "Eleanor Rigby," "If I Only Had a Brain" (duet with Fozzie Bear), "Something" (duet with Sweetums), and "How to Handle a Woman" (duet with Thog).
  • Other proposed songs for the first season, which went unperformed in any episode, include "Tennessee Bird Walk," "When I See An Elephant Fly," "Lovely," "I Am a Fine Musician," "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," "Take Off the Mask," "Cry Me a River," "If Every I Would Leave You," "On Top of Old Smokey," "Sippin' Cider Through a Straw," and "It's a Musical World."

Sesame Street

  • "Unforgettable": Singer Natalie Cole was scheduled to perform her hit song "Unforgettable" on the show with Forgetful Jones. Last-minute scheduling conflicts and the passing of Richard Hunt prevented the taping.[2]
