My gosh, are these even around anymore? Cause I would LOVE to do my own Muppet Show outlines. So, I've decided to do a collection of my own Muppet Show outlines!! I've been reading some of the past outlines done by other forum members, and may I just say they are impressive! That's what influenced me to do my own outlines! So....without further ado, here's my first TMS outline! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- GUEST STAR: Robert Englund (The guy who does Freddy Krueger. (Or used to do it)) STYLE: Season 5 COLD OPENING: Pops is attempting to carve a Jack-O-Lantern, when Robert enters with one hand behind his back. Pops: Hey, who are you? Robert: I'm Robert Englund. I'm supposed to be the guest star on The Muppet Show tonight. Pops: Robert Englund, eh? The star of them flasher movies? Robert: Flasher? No you mean "slasher" movies. Pops: That's what I said. Hey, ya think you can help me carve this darn pumpkin. Robert: Oh sure. -reveals the one hand behind his back as one his hands for Freddy Krueger- Pops: Ahhhh! A knife hand has dissected your hand! -ducks behind the desk- Robert: I guess this is what happens when you've been doing a slasher movie for so long. THEME SONG TRUMPET GAG: Gonzo's trumpet howls like a ware wolf. Gonzo: There's a full moon out tonight! INTRODUCTION: Kermit comes onstage, dressed as a vampire. Kermit: Thank you, thank you. Hi ho, and welcome again to The Muppet Show! May I now warn the audience that tonight's show will be a lot scarier than usual. Waldorf: That's no surprise. Statler: Yeah, the show always scares us. Kermit: Oh but tonight will be especially scary. We are celebrating Halloween here at the Muppet Theater, along with our guest star, that great actor of horror films such as "A Nightmare On Elm Street:" Robert Englund! Audience: Ooooooooh! Kermit: Yes. But first, here are a group of Happy Haunts that are dying to perform this first number. MUSICAL NUMBER: Grim Grinning Ghosts, performed by a group of ghosts while scaring a Whatnot grave keeper. BALCONY: Waldorf: Oh well didn't that last number make you grin? Statler: No, it was so bad, I kept frowning the entire time. Both: Dohohohoho! Waldorf: Boo! Statler: Boo! BACKSTAGE: Kermit: Very good ghosts and ghouls and goblins and whatever. Scooter (dressed as a Skeleton): But chief, there weren't any goblins in the last number. Goblin: That's what you think. Kermit: Okay, Scooter, who's on next? Scooter: Ummmm, Sammy The Dancing and Juggling Skeleton. Kermit: Okay, Sammy The Dancing and Juggling Skeleton onstage! Uncle Deadly: Excuse me, Mr. Kermit sir. Kermit: -turns to see Uncle Deadly and jumps- Ah! Oh, hello, Deadly. What's the matter? Uncle Deadly: Well, I hear your guest star is a Mister...Robert Englund. Kermit: Yes, it is. Uncle Deadly: -gasp- My dream! Next to Vincent Price, this a dream come true! I must perform a number with him. Kermit: Well, I don't know if he's much of a singer but..... Robert: Hey, Kermit? Kermit: Oh look it's our guest star, Robert Englund. Yay!!!! Robert: Kermit, did anyone just ask if they wanted to do a musical number with me? Uncle Deadly: -touching Robert's arm- Are you a devil from heck? Are you from England? Robert: No, I'm from California. Uncle Deadly: Oh, my deepest apologies, Mr. Englund, but I am HUGE fan of yours. Robert: Really? This seems kind of awkward because usually people don't root for villains. Uncle Deadly: I'm different. I LOVE villains! The Wicked Witch of The West, Cruella Deville, that dragon in Sleeping Beauty.....she was a fiery one. Robert: How do you know? Uncle Deadly: I've dated her. VET'S HOSPITAL: (Zombie) Announcer: And now, Veternarian's Hospital. The continuing stoooooorrrrrrry of a quack who's gone to the dogs.

Dr. Bob: He's already dead. All three: Ahahahahaha Announcer: And so we come to the end of another Veternarian's Hospital. Dr. Bob: That was fast. Announcer: Tune in next week when you'll hear The Zombie say........ Zombie: Uhhhhhhh........... Nurse Piggy: Dr. Bob, it's alive! Nurse Janice: What do we do? Dr. Bob: What else? RUN!!!! All three: AHHHHHH!!!!! -run offstage- Zombie: What's the matter with them? Haven't they ever heard of "The Night of The Living Dead?" BACKSTAGE: Miss Piggy runs to Kermit, still terrified of the zombie from the last sketch. Miss Piggy: Kermie, hide me! It might get me! Kermit: Piggy, there's nothing to be afraid of. It's just a harmless zombie.

Janice: Like, do you think I could be a Charlie's Angel with this on? Floyd: With that on, you're my angel. If you were on the cover of Playboy with that on, I think Dorothy Stratten would be rolling in her grave right now. -kisses her cheek- Janice: Fer sure. -the two exit- Kermit: Oh, Scooter! Scooter: Yeah, boss? Kermit: Has Robert decided on what he's going to do for the last number yet? Scooter: No, Gonzo and Uncle Deadly are talking about that with him right now.
