Did You Know?


This is Wayne & Wanda's last performance on the show together. Wanda won't be seen again after her performer Eren Ozker left the show to start her family, but Wayne will remain solo starting in Season 3. The duo will make a surprise appearance in the Linda Lavin episode that Kermit had fired them for the first place! See more »


In the library sketch, we can briefly see Wanda's puppeteer's head underneath her. This sketch is later marketed on its own as a Muppet Meeting Film. See more »


Waldorf: Bravo! Bravo!
Statler: What are you bravo-ing about?
Waldorf: That performance! It was first rate.
Statler: Yes, it was good. But only one act I've ever seen deserved a bravo.
Waldorf: Oh, really, who was that?
Statler: Lady Beth Macintosh and her singing parakeet. I'll never forget her closing night at the Palace.
Waldorf: Really? What happened?
Statler: Well, she fell into a box of birdseed just before going on stage and she was pecked to death by the parakeet!
Waldorf: That's a hard act to follow.
Statler: Yeah, well, I was there and I cried.
