Bobo has a hard time understanding 20px-Prince_symbol.svg.png's name.


Prince Rogers Nelson (b. 1958) appeared as a guest star in episode 201 of Muppets Tonight on September 13, 1997. At the time, he was known as Prince symbol (dubbed by the media as the Artist Formerly Known as Prince). A Muppet caricature of the star appeared in the same episode.

Twelve years before, in 1985, Prince won the Academy Award for "Best Original Song Score" for the movie Purple Rain, defeating Jeff Moss, nominated for his work on The Muppets Take Manhattan.

He and Troy Beyer were romantically linked in the 1990s.


  • "Purple Rain" was spoofed as "Piggy Reigns" by (Frog) Prince in the 1993 Muppet Trading Cards set.
  • The Sesame Street song "Nineteen" spoofs Prince's song "1999."
