    I like a lot of the muppet newsflashes. One of my favorites was where he said that "She fried the ballerina for lunch!" and the one where the newsman says "This assembly line was formerly used for Pop-up toasters....", and Kermit looks like he's being thrown or something. That's funny!

    If we're talking original TMS, my fave is the running gag about hunting season followed up later with opera season.

    If we're including any Newsflashes anywhere, the ones at muppets.com have overall been some of the alltime best. Especially the one with the Newsman getting handed several pieces of breaking news (the one that ends with "Oh - my - GOUDA!") I also love The Newsman "translating" Bobby McFerrin on JHH.

    "The Atlantic Ocean has been kidnapped...the kidnappers are demanding two Christmases a year and a hug from mommy every night."

    That will always be one of my all-time favorites.

    OMG! THAT'S HILARIOUS! I loved that one. It would have been much funnier if he was wearing the glasses!

    I also love the one where the newsman talks about ridiculous stories being sneaked in, and then reads that a black & yellow striped Mackerel was elected king that morning.

    The furniture monsters, and the report on a woman who flew to Dallas (Phyllis Diller) -- just for Newsie's reactions. He displayed so much more personality in season 1...and I adore him without the specs!

    I like the one from the Roger Moore ep. (with the mackerel), for the great wordy play at the end ("Holy mackerel!" "No, you're highness will do."). The hunting/opera season one is funny too.

    I liked the recent one promoting "Kitchen with Cat Cora" (What the? I said HAM! And you give me pancakes? What kind of birdbrains are running this place? Aah! Aah! Oh the incessant pecking! Aaah!)

    The one with the Ping pong balls and the bowling ball was hilarious, and how about the one where some musical instruments had to be jettisoned (the one where a piano falls on the Newsman)

    The Muppet Show Season 3 -Lynn Redgrave "Kermit stars as Robin Hood."

    Newsman as the "Town Crier" :news: - "Five o'clock and all's well, Five o'clock and all's well! Except that Maid Marian has been kidnapped, the sheriff's up to no good, the dog is stealing the cheese, Kermit's mad at Piggy and it's really only 4:30." LOL! And then a pot falls on his head. XD

    Somehow, I don't like the news flash segments in season 1
