Trivia

Kermit tells Joel Grey to keep practicing his German accent as it might come in handy. This is a reference to the fact that the accent did come in handy as Grey had already won a Tony, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for playing the German Master of Ceremonies in Cabaret (1972). See more »

Goofs

Near the end of Joel Grey's musical number, we can see the tip of Dave Goelz's head under Zoot's and Janice's waists. See more »

Quotes

Kermit the Frog: Welcome. And what a show we have for you tonight. How would you like to see 4,000 woodpeckers performing an aerial ballet, while 87 gorillas and two dozen elephants do "The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy"? Well, forget it, because instead we've got Joel Grey as a guest star, which in a way is like having all the excitement of everything I mentioned without having to clean up afterwards. But right now, let's get things rolling on "The Muppet Show", where we have "Comedy Tonight".
