Gonzo is contacted by his alien family through his breakfast cereal. But when the men in black kidnap him, it's up to Kermit and the gang to rescue Gonzo and help him reunite with his long-lost family.
Kermit the Frog is the manager of a cabaret-style theatre house, which invariably has more drama behind the stage than on it. He has to contend with wannabe-comedian bears, the smothering advances of Miss Piggy, crabby regular theatre patrons, homicidal chefs, livestock, not to mention making the weekly guest star feel welcome.Written by

Producers considered an episode giving tribute to Australian culture, with Don Lane and Bert Newton as the guest stars. At the time, Don and Bert were hosts of the most-watched locally-made program in Australia, The Don Lane Show (1975). However, the producers deemed the duo not big enough names for an international audience. See more »
Kermit. Kermit. This time I have really got it. I have re-mastered the art of handling hecklers.
Oh, you think so, huh?
Oh, I know so. I know so.
OK, I tell you what - you tell a joke and I will heckle you.
But, Fozzie - I expect a great comeback.
Ahh, my cousin's so dumb he thinks Eggs Benedict's a mafia gangster.
I've seen cheeseburgers funnier then that.

In the UK, the ending credits roll on the left corner of the screen and credit the guest star. In all non-UK versions of the show, the credits roll in the center of the screen and do not credit the guest star. The UK editions of half of the first season episodes, as well as the ones with Harry Belafonte and Chris Langham, have recently been shown on television in the US. See more »
'The Muppet Show', which features a cast of Muppets, is without a doubt one of the most original and creative television programs ever made. A show like this could only have come from the genial mind of the puppeteer Jim Henson. It was produced by Jim Henson and his team of 'Sesame Street'.
What makes it so distinctive is that it is like a theater show (or even a cabaret-like theater house) with a cast of hand-operated puppets (or Muppets). This shows well the concern of making something very imaginative and creative. To make it even more complete, it is quite entertaining. Immense amusement and classic humor are priorities as well.
Together with 'Sesame Street', 'The Muppet Show' is part of childhood's fond and nostalgic memories of many (myself included). Plus, both children and grown-ups can enjoy this juvenile program. I remember I used to watch many episodes of this at primary school, together with kids from other classes in an awesome video room of that school. It was so much fun! We had many laughters in that video room.
The best and funniest characters from 'The Muppet Show' are Kermit the Frog and that crazy Miss Piggy. One word to describe both: hilarious!
