Madeline tells Gonzo she thinks he's terrific on the show, and the ego-starved Gonzo instantly falls in love with her. He drops in to Miss Piggy's dressing room to tell her he no longer has a crush on her, which pleases her until she finds out that he likes someone else. Gonzo's obsession takes him to the brink of marrying him until hearing her comments to Kermit of his going off the deep end breaks his fragile heart.

Notes Edit

  • The Swedish Chef sketch in this episode was written by Joseph A. Bailey as part of his original audition script for The Muppet Show. Jerry Juhl enjoyed it and incorporated into a regular show script, but Jim Henson rejected it for an unknown reason. It was continuously sidelined by Jim from future scripts until Cheryl Henson, visiting the set one week, reacted positively to it during a read through. She goaded her father into allowing it in the show, offering to design and build the lobster puppets. Bailey had an alternative version, where the Chef prepared a lamb stew instead, until a group of fedora-wearing, Brooklyn-accented, gangster sheep break up the scene.

Edits Edit

  • Nickelodeon: "The Pig Got Up and Slowly Walked Away" was cut.
