Speaking of that sketch, a fan made their own version using audio from The Muppet Show album:



Original:



Cool to compare. Couple of key differences, no laugh track and Jim re-recorded Kermit's final line. Either way it's still brilliant!

Arr-greed! It's very close to sounding like an authentic song from the Walt era that might have been written by the Shermans for the Pirates ride or a sea-farin' film. Arr!

Season 1:
Kaye Ballard: episode completely absent

Season 2:
Bernadette Peters: "They Call the Wind Maria" and "I'm Five"
Don Knotts: "Lullaby of Birdland"

Season 3:
Cheryl Ladd: UK Spot "There's A New Sound"
Danny Kaye: UK Spot "Jogging"
Roger Miller: UK Spot "Down at the Old Bull and Bush"

Season 4:
Anne Murray: "Dancing on the Ceiling"

Season 5:
James Coburn: UK Spot "Bird Walk"
Tony Randall: "Ti-Pi-Tin"
Hal Linden: "If I Ruled the World"
Wally Boag: "The Ying Tong Song"

Knew it wouldn't be completely uncut! You called the Chris episode, Ben!
