    So let's make things a little interesting here...

    Assuming that a lot of you here have seen or at least heard of the Muppet Show, I would like to know who your favorite guest star was who appeared on the Muppet Show and why. Who do you think really had fun on the show that made him or her your favorite guest star?

    Mine was Spike Milligan from Season 3.

    He was just so funny!!!! I think it was one of the more interesting episodes of the series in that he just made it a bit over-the-top. And it was probably some of Sam's best moments on the show, just having to bear with Spike's insane antics.

    Yes, I thought Florence Henderson was also really great on the Muppet Show. I liked her musical segments of "Elusive Butterfly" and "Happy Together".

    Definitely enjoyed seeing Alice Cooper appear.

    His performance of "School's Out" was fire.

    My favorite guest would have to be a tie between Ethel Merman and Elton John. But funny enough my favorite episode is the Loretta Swit episode. The acting between Jim and Frank through Kermit and Piggy is gold! :)

    Harry Belafonte would be my second favorite. Everyone doing "Turn the World Around" is one of the most memorable segments in the history of The Muppet Show in my opinion. It's also one of my favorite songs from the show.

    I'd have to say my favorite guest star (out of all 120 celebrities) was John Denver. The chemistry that he had with the Muppets was nothing short of astounding and adorable, especially in "The Garden Song." Plus, the exchange with Miss Piggy over swamp creatures is gold because John couldn't keep a straight face at all. And you can tell that he's having a blast doing the scene.

    My honorable mentions include Rita Moreno, Zero Mostel, Madeline Kahn, Elton John, Julie Andrews, John Cleese, Alice Cooper, Raquel Welch, Harry Belafonte, Liza Minelli, Lynda Carter, Linda Ronstadt, and Carol Burnett.
