A talking Muppet rock appeared in episodes 301 and 302 of The Muppet Show. In episode 301, Kris Kristofferson discusses with Rita Coolidge how everything on the show walks and talks - animals, vegetables... "Don't about forget the minerals!" the rock adds.
In the next episode, after Kermit the Frog introduces Leo Sayer as the guest and comments that it's not often they have any really good rock on the show, the rock takes offense.
The rock was performed by Jerry Nelson in episode 301, and Dave Goelz in episode 302.
