Question about the student Bee sketch
14 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is great! Anthony Perkins is actually very funny in this, despite his history of doing horror movies. He gets cracked up several times when interacting with the Muppets, though. Maybe he finds them funnier than I do. My favorite sketch in this episode is the one with the college student protesting her grade with her instructor. However, I do have a question that has been driving me nuts ever since I saw this episode again recently after purchasing the season one box set. Does anyone have any idea who the little boy is that plays the little "plus" bee that the professor (Anthony Perkins) gives the student (Laraine Newman) after she protests her grade?
