Seven-foot-tall Talking Carrot

The Pirates of Penzance is a "Savoy Opera" by Gilbert and Sullivan. The only Gilbert and Sullivan opera to have a premiere in New York City, it was a smash hit on its opening on New Year's Eve in 1879, and remains one of their most popular works today.

Several songs from the show were included in a medley performed by Gilda Radner and a Seven-foot-tall Talking Carrot in episode 304 of The Muppet Show, as well as other Muppet productions.
