The pilot features a painted castle set against a plain backdrop, as the King discusses Id, before being confronted by the Wizard, who uttering his trademark spell, causes him to explode. The Wizard then explains, "It's a standard Muppet finale. If you don't know how to end it, go out with a --," at which point he too explodes in a puff of smoke. Then all three characters return to dance and bow to a fanfare, with the Spook making a particularly hammy exit.
At the 2003 "Muppet Rarities" event, Craig Shemin cited this as the earliest known occasion when Jim Henson created puppets based on pre-existing characters and designs.
