Rowlf first appears during the opening number, "El Rancho Grande," twirling a fake lasso.

Rowlf the Dog's nephew, a pup named Nephew, comes for a visit. According to Rowlf, Nephew is a "goofy lookin' kid," despite the obvious family resemblance. When Jimmy Dean questioned why his name is Nephew, Rowlf replied, "What am I gonna call him, 'Niece'?"

They sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" with Jimmy.

This is one of the rare times a second Muppet character appeared in a sketch. Nephew was performed by Jerry Juhl.
