Occasionally, the end theme would be performed in a different way. Kaye Ballard show: All the band members, except Rowlf, quit the show. Rowlf is left to play a piano-only version of the theme tune. Loretta Lynn: Both the opening and closing credits in this show are done differently. The show is performed at the local railway station and, as such, the lyrics to the opening theme are appropriately changed - Cast: It's time to get things started, on the most sensational, inspirational... Fozzie Bear: This week's sort of, railroad stational. The band play an off-key version of the end theme. Rowlf explains the reason to the audience - "No wonder this sounds bad. We're playing a timetable!" Harry Belafonte: The cast sing the song "Turn the World Around" while the end credits roll. Spike Milligan: The cast sing the song "It's a Small World" while the end credits sing. Guest Spike Milligan tells them to keep quiet as he's trying to sleep. At the same time, the end theme is played down and Kermit the Frog, who is still on stage, yells out that the music be stopped. Roger Miller: The whole cast, except Dave Goelz, have turned into chickens. As a result, all the band play the end theme as chickens. Animal pecks at his drums, while Rowlf and another chicken play the piano. Dudley Moore: Dudley's Music Machine plays a bizarre rendition of the end theme. It sounds off-key and is done in various styles including jazz, stripper music, chase music. Mac Davis: This is the episode where Beaker gets duplicated by Dave Goelz's duplicator machine. During the last song "I Believe in Music", the band and even the hecklers Statler and Waldorf are changed into Beakers. The Beakers play the end theme.
