    Oh! I can't believe I forgot these!

    Muppet Newsflash during the Julie Andrews episode: "A plane loaded with sports equipment was forced to jettison some of its cargo. Among the items tossed out were 10,000 Ping-Pong balls-" the anchorman gets ping-pong balls rained on him "-and one bowling ball." The anchorman gets knocked on the head with a plummeting bowling ball.

    From the Carol Burnett episode. Two Anything muppets are dancing together during the dance marathon.

    Male Anything: I put on my golf shoes and my feet are killing me!
    Female Anything: Why's that?
    Male Anything: I put them on inside out!

    here's one from SS -
    This really old one about the number 3. it even featured Jim Henson juggling 3 BALLS.

    the funny part was when they showed a little kid at a fancy restaurant, like The Ritz, and the waiter takes the round-lid-thing off his plate and there was 3 peas there. the kid looked shocked and said in a funny voice "3 peas?" it sounded like he said "3 peteys" (like the name, Petey)

    The little boy was Brian Henson. The Henson kids were seen in a variety of clips on Sesame Street.

    Gonzo: Hello there, I'm here to tell the story
    Rizzo: And I am here for the Food
    Gonzo: My name is Charles Dickens
    Rizzo; and my name is Rizzo the Rat, wait you're not Charles Dickens
    Gonzo: I am too
    Rizzo: A Blue Furry Charles Dickens that plays with a Rat
    Gonzo: Of Course
    Rizzo: Charles Dickens was a 17th Century Novelist, a Genius
    Gonzo: Oh you're too kind
    Gonzo: Alright I will, I know the story of A Christmas Carol like the back of my hand
    Rizzo: Well then if you're Charles Dickens, Prove It
    Gonzo: There's a mole on my wrist and a scare on my thumb from when I fell off my bycicle
    Rizzo: Don't tell us your hand tell us the story

    Gonzo: "Don't worry, I'll catch you."
    Rizzo: *steeling himself* "God save my little broken body. Aiiieee!" *he jumps, Gonzo runs forward to catch him, Rizzo lands behind Gonzo*
    Gonzo: Hm. Missed.
    Rizzo: *sighs* "Oh, wait a minute. I forgot my jelly beans." *goes over to the fence, examines it for a moment, then goes under through the bars to the other side, then comes back the way he came with his jelly beans.*
    Gonzo: "You can fit through those bars?"
    Rizzo: *glancing back at them* "Yeah."
    Gonzo: "You are SUCH an idiot."

    Every single moment you guys have listed has made me crack up! VERY FUNNY stuff... Some were my favorites, but here are some more.

    From TMS:
    Fozzie - AH! MY hat!
    Rowlf - Can you play hatless?
    Fozzie - What?
    Rowlf - I said 'can you play hatless?
    Fozzie - I don't know... who wrote it?

    From MIS:
    Agent Singer - No nostrils... how do you smell?
    Rizzo - Awful, he's my room mate.

    From SS (while looking at Bert's fish tank):
    Ernie - Which one is that, Bert?
    Bert - That's Talboot.
    Ernie - And who's that one?
    Bert - That one?... I DON'T KNOW WHO THAT IS!

    And one more from TMS (after calypso pig number):
    Statler - I didn't know the pigs could play steel drums.
    Waldorf - Eh?
    Statler - PIGS! STEEL DRUMS!
    Waldorf - Oh yeah, thay'll take anything that's not bolted to the floor.

    Sorry if the scripts aren't exact word for word, but they crack me up!

    I just remembered another one where Fozzie writes Kermit's opening dialogue and there's all these spelling errors.

    Kermit - Good evening lagies and genglefengs and welcome to the muffel show.. I am your host Kermit the forg... Kermit the forg!?
    Fozzie - Okay, so I can't type!

    The scene where Fozzie Bear sawed the crying robot in half,was actually from the episode that guest starred Sylvester Stallone. ;)

    I love in Muppet Family Christmas when the Turkey shows the Swedish Chef Big Bird:

    "You think I'm a nice fat bird?! Well, look at that!"

    And the Swedish Chef drops all his stuff and exclaims "Gobla-Gobla HUMUNGA!"

    More gems from MCC...

    In the opening chords of "It Feels Like Christmas," when the baby band is singing the "la-la-la" part, one baby winds up backhanding another in the face, making the baby's face squinch up the way Statler's or Waldorf's would when they'd hit each other.

    (Gonzo and Rizzo have hitched a ride with Scrooge and Christmas Past to the past, and are being lowered to the ground with Scrooge)

    RIZZO: Oh, safe at last.
    GAFFER: *meows*
    RIZZO: *turns and looks behind him, then back at the camera* No.
    *Rizzo takes off with Gaffer chasing him*

    RIZZO: I fell down a chimney and landed on a flaming, hot goose!
    GONZO: You have all the fun.

    Wait, I saw something like that on MUPPET BABIES- the Muppets were playing hide and go seek, I think Fozzie was "it" and looked inside a drawer and asks "is anyone in there?" The inside of the drawer looks like a henhouse with Gonzo in it. Gonzo says "Nope no one here but us chickens" and Fozzie goes away to look elsewhere. So when was the song on the Muppet Show? I gotta see that!

    Here's another one from sesame street:

    There's this girl who is saying the alphabet, and every once in a while during the song, she'd say out loud "COOKIE MONSTER!" and laugh! I thought that was one of the funniest moments I've ever seen!

    Anything that involves grover makes me laugh!
    Statler and waldorf!
    Those monsters in the M-O-N-S-T-E-R, C-L-U-BHOUSE MONSTER CLUBHOUSE
    Don music
    Definitely can't forget to include SWEDISH CHEF! He's funny!
    and let's not forget crazy harry! The Electric mayhem band is funny too!

    They should do a Muppet show doing "Pig latin"! That would make me laugh so hard, I'd cry!

    -The Club Dot scene in VMC
    -The part w/ the "O' Mayhem" in VMC
    -The part w/ Howard the pig ("love that tushie!")
    -The Hapiness Hotel song has so many funny verses in it ("Okay the lobby's looking shabby and it's got the wrong address" "And the whole dang thing has been condemned by American Express" "Still the management is cheerful though the whole joint's gone to ****...")
    -Here's a good quote: Gonzo: "It just feels so weird" Rizzo: "What? You mean that Mr. Arrow is dead?" Gonzo: "Yeah that, and my pants are filled with starfish" Rizzo: "You and your hobbies!"
    -Beaker with two heads in VMC
    -In GMC when they're trying to find a way down to the Fabulous Baseball Diamond, and they're wondering how to get down, Bunsen says "We could try jumping" and I think Fozzie says: "Are you crazy? That's at least a hundred feet!" and Bunsen says "I didn't say it was a good suggestion"

    Man I have got to increase my muppet video collection! Im wearing out my 2 episodes of The Muppet Show, and 1 episode of Fraggle Rock.

    One of my favorite moments was when Kermit was singing:

    "...The pig will never have her way, Bib and napkin, knife and fork, is the only way that I'll touch pork"

    I crack up every time I hear it. :D

    How about the Gilda Radner TMS with the 7-foot-tall carrot and Radner singing the Carrots of Penzance. Also, same show, the "sticky situation" at Muppet Labs with a very "tacky" glue!
