- November 14, 2002 - Bob Edwards provides a retrospective of The Muppet Show, prompted by Kermit the Frog's recent receipt of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Kermit himself was interviewed, and notes that Miss Piggy is unaware that she doesn't have a star yet, "but you know, I kinda doubt she listens to NPR somehow." Also interviewed, in pre-recorded segments, are Jerry Juhl, Jerry Nelson, Steve Whitmire, and Dave Goelz.
