The threat to Kermit's hosting job is short-lived -- at the end of the episode, the wind-up host breaks down and Kermit puts its away.
Other Robotic Kermits
- In The Miss Piggy Cover Girl Fantasy Calendar, Miss Piggy is featured in a spoof cover of Popular Mechanics building a mechanical Kermit with the headline, "Home Workshop Prize Winner: Frog-Building for Fun... But Mostly Fun." The article claims that your own, amazingly life-like tin polliwog can be built in eight hours for only fifty dollars. A list of materials is provided along with a detailed blueprint boasting a limited use of tools: blowtorch, soldering iron and rivet gun.
- The Spring 1984 issue of Muppet Magazine featured an alternate, rougher robot version of Kermit with no "coverings." The photo features Miss Piggy standing beside the metal amphibian with a wrench and Kermit up-in-arms behind them, suggesting that Piggy had the robot built to satisfy her own affection. Within his innards, a small red heart could be seen amongst a myriad of other mechanical parts.
- A Sesame Street News Flash segment featured a mechanical replica of Kermit. Created by Dr. Nobel Price, the duplicate is dubbed Herman the Hoppity-Hop.
- A sophisticated cybernetic frog from the future fends off Miss Piggy as The Kerminator.
