The Miss Muffet Play is a Sesame Street sketch about three people rehearsing a play about the classic nursery rhyme Little Miss Muffet.

In the sketch, Lance tries to keep control of his cast: Little Miss Muffet and a blank-faced Fat Blue Anything Muppet who can't seem to find the right costume.

At the "Along came a spider" cue, Muffet's co-star enters, wearing a a rabbit costume, and then a duck outfit. Miss Muffet becomes increasingly annoyed -- and when he shows up as a fish, she grabs the parts of his fish costume off, and puts his spider outfit on him.

Naturally, once she sees the spider costume on him, Miss Muffet is frightened, and a crazy chase ensues.
