"Eatings" on The Muppet Show

Discussion in 'Classic Muppets' started by Philip Kippel, May 4, 2002.

  1. Does anybody out there have a listing of all the "eatings" (Muppets/guest stars being eaten) that occured on The Muppet Show, when they occured, what episodes they occured in and who ate who?

    I'd appreciate it very much.

    Thanks again. Bye for now.

    Actually she only ate Miss Piggy once...in the Pigs In Space sketch, in the Carol Burnett episode!!!

    Do we have to limit it to the Muppet show?

    Because on Ed Sullivan and related appearances, Kermit was eaten by a Gorgon Heap-esque looking monster in the original version of the skit in #28 Rich Little.

    Kermit was also eaten by a piano in an Ed Sullivan sketch, after he played music to soothe savage beasts (Snerfs).
  9. BlueFrackle Active Member

    Dave,

    You know the 'Music to Soove The Savage Beast' skit ?

    Well there was another version with a Smaller Live Hand Puppet version of Splurge !

    He was dancing on the Piano like the Snerf.

    See ya

    Gorgon Heap didn't really eat Kermit. Kermit escaped and hid in Statler and Waldorf's balcony.
  11. Splurge Member

    And without his ticket stub. Some people are so inconsiderate....

    Also does this count, since we didn't see eating happen:

    #? Florence Henderson

    In Vet's Hospital, Behemoth has a FROG in his throat!
    Kermit: Very funny, see if this dumb doctor's sketch ever gets on this show again.
