    I like the one with Anne Murray. There were some good sketches in that episode.

    Steve Martin, John Cleese, Harry Belafonte, Elton John... there are so many great episodes of the Muppet Show, that it's hard to pick just one.
    Is there even such a thing as a bad Muppet Show episode?

    Harry Belafonte hands down. The episode has some great Fozzie Bear moments and he is by far my favorite Muppet. The show also has a lot of heart and the song at the end almost makes me cry as I know it was used at Jim Henson's funeral as well.

    I'd have to say the Lesley Ann Warren episode, it was filled with so much energy and goofy sketches.

    I also love the Roy Clark show, Fozzie is so wonderful in that one as well.

    At the moment, I would say Christopher Reeve, and Alice Cooper in a very close second, but I have only seen seasons 1-4 and have yet to see all of season 5. I also love a lot of the season 2 episodes.

    Mine would have to be Loretta Lynn episode just cause it takes place at a train station and not at the theater. To me when they change something like that to a show it makes it even funnier. But the Paul Williams episode was pretty funny too. I loved all the short jokes.

    I liked the Ethel Merman episode, the Elton John episode, the Alice Cooper episode, and the Marisa Berensen episode ("And we know…you will stay. *flashes Grell Sutcliff teeth*"). I don't have a favorite, those ones just stood out the most to me.

    There were so many great episodes from seasons 2-5, it's hard too decide but, I think one of my favorites would have to be the Spike Milligan episode. He was even crazier than the Muppets themselves!

    My favorite is Steve Martin

    Best over all plot/use of guest: John Cleese
    Best closing number: Pearl Bailey
    Best use of Muppets as silly and fun/meaningful and social conscience: Harry Belafonte

    All of these are, of course, just my opinion. There are close seconds for all of them as well. ;-)
