Pictures Episode Description

"Plastic Buffet"

March 13, 2005
The Palisades' Muppet action figures were featured in a parody episode of VH1's Behind the Music on Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. In this parody, the Electric Mayhem gets fired after the Muppet Theater is shut down when Kermit is unable to pay the rent to the mob. The band then tries to earn their fourtune back by performing at "kids' parties, bar mitzvah, and even offering children piano lessons." Janice ends up on "The Howard Stern Show" where she has been diagnosed with something. The Electric Mayhem soon appear on a star search special. However, Ed McMahon makes fun of Animal causing him to attack the host. Animal is then "put down" (killed) by the doctors and the band splits. With Animal dead, Floyd Pepper states that a reunion is unlikely especially since Zoot had been busted in Japan when cocaine was in his suitcase. The parody ends with Dr. Teeth saying that friends are more important than fame as Rowlf plays a quiet sad piano melody and Janice cries in the background.

In a parody of Fraggle Rock and the novel "Watership Down", Doc hires an exterminator to get rid of the creatures living behind the wall in his workshop when his dog Sprocket keeps barking down that hole. With the help of a grenade, Fraggle Rock is destroyed and only Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Red, Boober, and three generic Fraggles escape while the rest are trapped in the cave-in. Gobo consults his (raunchy) postcarts left by his Uncle Traveling Matt to help find a new home, despite Wembley's scary premonitions. The group cross a busy section filled with speeding cars (which Gobo calls them "Beep-Beep-Outta-the-Way-Assholes") with the crashing of two of them killing a green Fraggle. The Fraggles then get chased by Sprocket who mangles a purple Fraggle who is then put out of his misery by the other Fraggles. The survivors find sustenance at a farm filled with radishes with a pink Fraggle getting killed in a trap. The remaining Fraggle five find a new cave home and are eager to start repopulating (despite how nervous Mokey and Red get due to them being the only females in the group). Wembley gets another vision of him partying until it is interrupted by an oil rig destroying their new home with the remaining Fraggles emerging from the oil gushing and hitting the ground already dead.
