    This is currently up on dailymotion..

    Part 1
    Part 2

    I have never seen this one before. it was one of the lost final season episodes, I guess (with Bean Bunny, Uncle Statler, Uncle Waldorf, and Baby Janice in that season as well- the lost characters).

    In this episode they pretend to have their own network (XYZ, since Animal ate the other building blocks). Gonzo pretends to be Peewee herman, Kermit pretends to be on, what else, Sesame Street, Piggy pretends she's in Winnie the Pooh, and Animal wants to be Beetlejuice.

    The funny jabs at SS were the best. They even referenced the old Kermit's letter lectures where things go terribly wrong. And in a scene in which Kermit and Animal pop out of a trash can... well... 2 guesses what joke they make.

    All and all a hillarious jab at TV shows at the time, including Pee Wee's claymation fridge.

    This is one of my favorite episodes! In fact, that soft calypso music on the title card is actually part of the theme song to Pee-Wee's Playhouse. :)

    What makes it lost?

    "lost" in terms of the episodes from the last season usually didn't get played too much in rotation, especially when syndicated. It's much more common to have seen earlier episodes. At least in my area...

    This episode was good. It's a shame that the credits were cut by the user. I wonder what those claymation clips were from. Those animal clips look like they could have been clips from film inserts from Sesame Street.

    Ridiculous was also the secret word in the Family Guy episode "Peter Giffin: Father, Husband... Brother?"

    When the doorbell rang, I expected it to be a salesperson of some sort. I am surprised that Gonzo didn't scream and slam the door on Skeeter, though.

    With this episode having Sesame Street parodies, it's a shame that Kermit didn't appear as a reporter in any scenes.

    And is this the only episode without Nanny? Very weird. This episode wasn't syndicated or released on video, so it's not like it was edited (with the obvious exception of the lack of credits).

    Thanks so much for this episode! I've been wanting to see it again forever! I was just watching the episode "Remote Control Corn Ball" just yesterday on there! A Very funny episode!

    Remote Controll Cornballs was very funny. And I guess this means that Bunsen and Beaker did appear on the show in the last season. I thought they had stopped appearing by the time Bean Bunny was added to the cast.

    Yeah, I especially loved the part whee Rolf showed up in the space ship and asked Piggy "Do you know what you need?" And she responded "A pistol?" LOL! It's also good to see Fozzies bear Teddy in the "Barley Alone Babies" episode, too.

    I also like how Rowlf keeps asking "Is that whats buggin' ya, Perl? LOL! I'm been saying that ever sense that episode aired. I like that part where Piggy asked where the door in the space ship came from and Rowlf goes "Sears" LOL again! Any time anybody ask me a question for the past seventeen years, I've been answering with Sears, haha! I also love the Pare where Animal yells out Swamp "Momma!" and starts chasing after piggy. I was laughing at that part so much, LOL! My cousin used to sneak up behind me and scare me saying that, LOL!

    I thought that the title cards always had the same music, resembling the opening theme, but in the episodes posted, there's always different music during the title cards. Did the show start doing this in the last season or something? Though I have seen the few last season episodes that were broadcast on Nickelodeon and don't remember any different music.

    Well "It's only pretend" (Whitch comes on after "Gaston Babies") to "A Punchline To The Tummy" are actually a part of season six, and yes those episodes all had diffrent music during the title card. But "Muppet Babies The Next Generation" is the beginning of season seven. Syndication only shows up to "Sing A Song Of Superheroes", But the rest of season seven doesn't air. At least in the United States it doesn't. But Disney in England shows or used to show those episodes.

    Same problem with Garfield and Friends. They showed up to half way through fourth season before they stared the first episode up again. They cut off great episodes like "power Squad" and the Garfield's Tales of Scarey Stuff that made fun of Barney.

    I realize that. I'm just glad I have those episodes and that there available on DVD.
  15. Daffyfan4ever

    Daffyfan4ever Well-Known Member

    Yeah, too bad they can't do that with "Muppet Babies." The problem there is probably that all the live footage they use are clips from movies so they'd have problems with copyright issues. I think they could work around that though. I even wrote about that at the tv.com website. Anyway, thank goodness for sites like You Tube and Daily Motion where we can watch these eps any time we want to.

    gee i dont think i remeber this one either, ty for sharing it..
  17. Ilikemuppets

    Ilikemuppets Well-Known Member

    Yeah, one of the reason they brought back those tow is because they brought back the long credit intro on the last season with all the babies saying what they like or do.
  18. Daffyfan4ever

    Daffyfan4ever Well-Known Member

    Yeah. I've noticed there have been a few eps in the last season where Bean didn't appear. I guess either those were produced before he was written into the show or that he was just one of those characters who just popped up on occassion like Bunsen and Beaker.

    The longer opening was brought back later on? In most of the one's I've seen from later seasons, it uses a shorter version of the intro. In fact, I sort of thought they got rid of the longer opening after season 2 or whatever. Could someone elaborate on what versions of credits were used on what seasons? I've sort of been wondering about that.

    Yes, Bean wasn't in every episode after he was introduced. Same as with Statler and Waldorf. Bean didn't appear in Bearly Alone Babies, and Statler and Waldorf did. And I recall quite a few episodes with Bean that don't include Statler and Waldorf, including Muppet Babies: The Next Generation and Sing a Song of Superheroes. I believe that I once read at the Tough Pigs forum that one fan once spoke with somebody who worked on the show, and was told that the station managers daughter hated Bunsen and Beaker, so they were taken off the show because of that.

    Now that I think of it, Bunsen and Beaker were still listed in the voice credits then, along with Statler, Waldorf, and Bean.

    And the directionless Bean who didn't fit in and didn't know what he was doing was better?

    BTW, If you want to continue the Bean discussion, I made a new thread... here
