Definitely. If you're interested, here's the original version of the song:
Here's a request from Piggy the Frog! Enjoy!
GUEST STAR: Tim Curry
STYLE: Season 5
Pops is feeding a parrot nearby.
Parrot: Squawk! Squawk!
Enter Tim Curry.
Pops: Oh, who are you?
Tim: I'm Tim Curry, your guest star on The Muppet Show tonight.
Parrot: Squawk! I'm Tim Curry, your guest star on The Muppet Show tonight.
Tim: No, I'm Tim Curry!
Parrot: No, I'm Tim Curry!
Tim: Hmmm. I'm a complete idiot.
Parrot: Squawk! You're a complete idiot! You're complete idiot!
Pops: -to parrot- Hey, he's not a complete idiot!
Tim: Of course not. -to camera- I'm a Sweet Transvestite from Transexual Transylvannia.
TRUMPET GAG: Gonzo gets struck by lightning before he plays his trumpet.
Kermit: Thank you, thank you and welcome again to The Muppet Show! And boy do we have a treat for you tonight!
Statler: The show's finally been cancelled?
Kermit: Uhhh No. Our guest star tonight is that talented star of stage, television and film, including "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", Mr. Tim Curry!
Kermit: Yes! But first, let us go back in time to the Medieval Ages. The era of knights and princesses and dragons and jesters and all that stuff..............
MUSICAL NUMBER: I Got You (I Feel Good), sung by a whatnot knight trying to save his "princess." He tries to run away once he finds out his princess is really Miss Piggy. She then karate chops the knight to a dragon's mouth.
Waldorf: Well, how do you feel about that number?
Statler: I feel sick to my stomach just watching it!
Kermit: Piggy, is he gonna be alright?
Miss Piggy: Who, mon capitan?
Kermit: That guy you just karate chopped into that dragon's mouth.
Miss Piggy:...........Oh, he'll be fine. -goes off-
Gonzo: -comes in looking a little like Dr Frank 'n' Furter (watch Rocky Horror)- Hey, Kermit!
Kermit: -gasp- Gonzo, what in the world are you wearing!?!?!
Gonzo: What am I wearing? -starts singing- Well, I'm just a sweet, tra.....
Kermit: No! It doesn't work that way!
Gonzo: So, how DOES it work?
Kermit: How should I know? Ask Tim Curry.
Tim: -coming out of dressing room- Yes, Kermit?
Kermit: And speaking of him, here's Tim Curry! Yaaaaaay!
Tim: Kermit, did someone need me for anything?
Gonzo: Yeah! How does this work? -starts dancing around-
Tim: Well, for starters, it doesn't go THAT way, Gonzo.
Gonzo: Then which way does it go?
Tim: -starts walking around, fancy- This way!
Gonzo: Oh that way! -starts walking around, fancy- Like this?
Tim: Yes! You got it!
Floyd: -passing by- Why's everyone tryin' to steal my walk? Mmmmm. -goes off-
Kermit: Hey, Tim, you better head onstage for your first sketch.
Tim: Oh! Thank you, Kermit! -goes onstage-
Gonzo: Hey! Where you going? You still have to teach me how to talk the talk!
Kermit: P.T. Barnum is one of the most celebrated showmen of all time, starting up the world famous "Barnum and Bailey Circus." And now, with us tonight as Mr. Barnum, joined by some of our other fun loving circus folk, is our guest star, Mr. Tim Curry! Yaaaaaaay!
SKETCH: Tim, as P.T. Barnum, introduces a three-ring circus. One ring with the oldest woman alive, second with a group of clowns, and third with an acrobatic team.
Statler: There's a sucker born every minute, alright.
Waldorf: Unfortunately, we are two of those suckers....for seeing this show!
Newsman: Here's a Muppet News Flash! "Popcorn is now becoming a popular snack to eat at operas. It not only lets the viewer enjoy popcorn at an opera, but also helps the performer onstage to keep in time to the chewing of the viewer. In fact there was even an avalanche of popcorn the other night at the Metropolitan Opera House!"
Popcorn then comes down from the sky onto of the Newsman.
Newsman: -eats one of the popcorn, but then spits it out- Bleh! No one told me this popcorn was stale!
Beauregard: -comes on- The popcorn was stale!
Newsman: Now you tell me!
UK SKETCH: MUSICAL NUMBER: I'd Really Love To See You Tonight, performed by Floyd and Janice, accompanied by Animal and Rowlf (similar setting to 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover )
BACKSTAGE (Tim's Dressing Room):
Tim is checking something in the mirror, when there's a knock on the door.
Tim: Come in.
Gonzo enters, still dressed in his Frank 'n' Furter outfit.
Gonzo: Hey, Tim!
Tim: Gonzo, I'm surprised you still have that outfit on.
Gonzo: Well, somebody's gotta do it!
Tim: And it sure isn't me.
Gonzo: Listen, does this sound any better?
Tim: Sound any.....
Gonzo: Yeah! I'm trying to talk like Frank 'n' Furter.
Gonzo: -starts to sing- Well I'm just a sweet tra.....
Tim: No! No! Gonzo, it doesn't work that way!
Gonzo: Then how DOES it work?
Tim: How should I know? Ask Ti......Oh wait. I am Tim Curry.
Gonzo: So how does it work?
Tim: This running gag isn't going to end anytime soon, I believe.
VET'S HOSPITAL: The Knight from the opening number is in Vet's Hospital. After a comment from the knight, Nurse Piggy karate chops him again, thus knocking him out.
Waldorf: What night is it?
Waldorf:......I think we just missed bingo night.
Statler: Well then next Tuesday, we'll go to bingo night instead of this show!
Miss Piggy then storms off into her dressing room.
Kermit: Did Piggy karate chop him again, Rowlf?
Rowlf: Yup. She sent him back to Dark Ages. -laughs, along with Janice, and then the two go off-
Gonzo then enters, not wearing his Frank 'n' Furter outfit anymore.
Kermit: Gonzo, what happened to being Tim Curry's next Rocky Horror groupie?
Gonzo: Mehhhhhh I couldn't hack it. Tim said I was doing everything wrong.
Kermit: Don't you always?
Gonzo: Do what?
Kermit: Never mind.
Gonzo: Listen, I've changed now. I'm not interested in trying to be the Sweet Tra........
Gonzo: But to my point, I've now decided to become something else. -rushes off, but then rushes back on with a stunt suit on- Evel Knievel! Hahahahaha!
Kermit: Gonzo, you've always been doing stunts.
Gonzo: Yeah, but my first name isn't Evel.
Kermit: Yeesh. -goes onstage-
Kermit: And now to close tonight's show, with a sweet little number to send you home with, our guest star, Mr. Tim Curry!
MUSICAL NUMBER: I'm Going Home (from The Rocky Horror (Picture) Show), performed by Tim, accompanied by The Electric Mayhem, backed up by The Female Singers.
Kermit: Well folks, another night, another show done....for now. But before we go, let us thank our guest star, ladies and gentlemen Mr. Tim Curry! Yaaaaaaaay!
Tim: Thank you so much, Kermit. You know I've actually learned a lot tonight.
Kermit: Like what, Tim?
Tim: For starters, don't sing "Sweet Transvestite" where the public can see you clearly looking like a moron.....
Gonzo: -comes on, back with his Frank 'n' Furter outfit on- Well I'm just a sweet, tra.........
Kermit and Tim: No! Please! No!
Kermit: Uhhh, we'll see you next time on The Muppet Show!
(Goodnights: Kermit, Gonzo, The Female Singers, Rowlf, Miss Piggy, and a few clowns from the Circus Sketch)
Statler: So what do we do now?
Waldorf: Well....I'm going home.
Statler: Where the skies are blue?
Waldorf: No, where my bed is!
Phew! This was a doozy! I hope you enjoyed it, Piggy The Frog. And I hope the rest of you did, too! More outlines, coming soon!
Thank you so much, that was hilarious! I love the mental image of Gonzo as Frank.
Good answer for anything.
You're welcome! I kinda think Gonzo would be a terrific Frank, either way. I thought it'd be a perfect plot, since Tim was only best known for that role at the time.
I don't know if this was intentional, but I noticed a bit of foreshadowing. First, you have Tim interacting with a parrot. Of course, he goes on to play Long John Silver in MTI (with a lobster instead of a parrot, I know, but still). Then the P.T. Barnum sketch with the clowns (IT).
I was aware of the foreshadowing of MTI with the parrot. However I actually really wasn't aware of the clowns in the P.T. Barnum sketch foreshadowing "It" until you told me. Thanks.
They probably weren't evil clowns then.
Nope. Definitely not evil clowns. Just perfectly normal Muppet clowns.
The two stories were AMAZIN'!
Perfectly normal? On The Muppet Show?
You're right. Nothing's normal on the Muppet Show.
Yeah, But its funny, and thats what gets people laughin' in the comidy
I finally caught up.
The witch in that sketch should be Taminella Grinderfall, in my opinion.
GUEST STAR: Bruce Springsteen
STYLE: Mid Season 5 (Between Tony Randall and Hal Linden)
Pops is checking off a day on a calendar, when Bruce enters
Pops: Oh, who are you?
Bruce: Bruce Springsteen. I'm your guest star tonight on the Muppet Show.
Pops: Bruce Springsteen, eh? Well, you're right on time alright.
Bruce: Why? Is the show over?
Pops: Not even close, buster. It's Pay Day!
Bruce: I'm getting paid to do this?
Pops: Not you.
Bruce: Money. That's all people want these days.
TRUMPET GAG: Gonzo's trumpet sounds like a saxophone, but Zoot's saxophone sounds like a trumpet.
Zoot: Did you steal my sax again, man?
Kermit: Thank you, thank you and welcome again to The Muppet Show! Hey, we got a fantastic show for you tonight because our guest star is that talented rock 'n' roll musician, Bruce Springsteen!
Kermit: Yes! But first, have you ever wondered what life is like behind the bars of Alcatraz? Well you're gonna see it now!
MUSICAL NUMBER: Jailhouse Rock, sung by a group of pigs behind bars, in a setting similar to Alcatraz. Penguins and Crazy Harry joins in on the number later on.
Waldorf: Yeesh, this show should be locked up already!
Statler: For what?
Waldorf: Disturbing our peace.
Kermit: Okay, great number, jail birds and.....jail hogs.
Pig: Who ya callin' jail hog, bustah? -goes off-
Kermit: -gulp- Okay, Hermiott the Maredresser on stage!
Fozzie: Wow, Kermit, that Bruce Springsteen is inspirational!
Kermit: Well, he sure is, Fozzie.
Fozzie: You know, he's inspired me to try something new. Something you would expect from me whatsover!
Another Pig: -passing by- One of your jokes landing? -laughs and goes off-
Fozzie: Kermit........I wanna be a musician.
Fozzie: Yeah, I can play........then again I can.....then again.....Hold on, I'll be back, Kermit.
Kermit: Fozzie, where are you going?
Fozzie: To find my musical, artistic talent! -goes off-
Kermit: And now, ladies and gentlemen, come run away to the streets of New York; where times are tough and the streets are full of dangers everywhere. And here to conquer these dangers is our very own Miss Piggy and out very special guest star, Mr. Bruce Springsteen! YAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!
MUSICAL NUMBER: Born To Run, sung by Bruce serenading Miss Piggy while running away from oncoming dangers in New York City. Miss Piggy karate chops them, but then slows down after a while, saying "I can't catch up!"
Statler: Huh. No wonder the pig couldn't catch up.
Waldorf: How come?
Statler: She wasn't born to run!
Bruce is carrying on the exhausted Miss Piggy in his arms.
Kermit: Bruce, is Piggy alright?
Bruce: Yeah, she'll be alright. She just wasn't used to all that running. She's not born to run like I am.
Kermit: But she's born to attack.
Bruce: You have a point there, Kermit. -goes off with Miss Piggy-
Fozzie: -comes on with a saxophone- Kermit! I found my musical talent!
Kermit: Fozzie, you can play saxophone?
Fozzie: Uhhh....of course! -plays saxophone badly-
Kermit: Wait a second. Fozzie, isn't that Zoot's saxophone?
Zoot then comes on, takes the saxophone from Fozzie, and then leaves.
Fozzie: Hey! Wait! Come back! You took my musical talent!
MUPPET LABS: Bunsen creates a motorcycle, capable of traveling through water. When Beaker tests it out in a pool of hot lava, he and the motorcycle sink into the lava.
UK SKETCH: MUSICAL NUMBER: Like A Rolling Stone, sung by a Rock, dreaming of becoming a Stonehenge.
Bruce is reading a magazine, when there's a knock on the door.
Bruce: Come in.
Fozzie: Oh, it's hopeless.
Bruce: What's hopeless, Fozzie?
Fozzie: Finding my musical talent. I wanna be a great musician, like you, Mr. Springsteen.
Bruce: But, Fozzie, what about your talent of telling jokes?
Fozzie: Well.....if being a musician doesn't get me heckled by the two old guys every night.....
Bruce: Fozzie, Fozzie. Talent isn't about trying to make someone else happy. It's about doing what you love best. And what you love doing best is telling jokes, right?
Bruce: There you go. Now let me tell you something.
MUSICAL NUMBER: Thank You For The Music, sung by Bruce, Fozzie, and other Muppets that join later on.
PIGS IN SPACE: Captain Link Hogthrob and Dr. Julius Strangepork finally wake up the passed out First Mate Piggy (whom was exhausted since Born To Run) using an electric ray gun, that ruins her hair. First Mate Piggy then karate chops Captain Link Hogthrob off the stage.
Statler: Just what the pig needed!
Statler: A static wake up call!
Miss Piggy: -still looking for Link- OKAY! WHERE IS HE!?!? WHERE'S THAT LITTLE HOG!?!! WHY I'M GONNA RIP HIM A NEW ONE ALRIGHT!!!!! -goes off-
Kermit: Maybe I should stay away from Piggy for a while until she calms down.
Fozzie: -comes rushing in- Kermit! Kermit! I've changed my mind.
Fozzie: Finding my musical talent. I already have it!
Kermit: Oh good.
Fozzie: Yeah. It's always right inside me whenever I go out and tell my jokes. Thank you, music!
Kermit: And the music thanks you, Fozzie. -Fozzie goes off-
Bruce: -comes on- Hey, Kermit.....
Kermit: Oh, hey, Bruce. What's the matter?
Bruce: Hey, you mind if I bring in a friend of mine for the closing number?
Kermit: Oh sure, Bruce.
Bruce: -to the side- Hey, Big Man, come on in!
Enter Clarence Clemmons
Clarence: Hey, Kermit.
Bruce: Kermit, this here's Clarence Clemmons, "The Big Man."
Zoot: -comes in- Big Man.....I envy you. -bows down to Clarence-
Clarence: Uhh...thank you, Zoot.
Bruce: Well, c'mon, guys. Let's get on for the closing number. -goes onstage with Clarence and Zoot-
Kermit: Hmmm. Just what our show needs, another "Big Man In Town." -goes onstage-
Kermit: And now, ladies and gentlemen, here to close our show tonight with his hit song "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out........" whatever a Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out, along with his fellow saxophonist and companion Clarence Clemmons, Mr. Bruce Springsteen! YAAAAAAAAY!
MUSICAL NUMBER: Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out, sung by Bruce, accompanied by The Electric Mayhem and Clarence Clemmons.
Kermit: Well folks, we sure had another swell night here on the Muppet Show.
Fozzie: -comes on- Thank you again, music, for this evening!
Fozzie: What? I'm thanking the music.
Kermit: Anyways, before we go, let us say thank you to our guest, Mr. Clarence Clemmons, and our very special guest star, ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Bruce Springsteen! YAAAAAAY!!!!
Bruce and Clarence both come on.
Bruce: Kermit, thank you so much for having us on here tonight.
Clarence: Yeah, man. It was a blast.
Fozzie: Hey, don't thank us, thank the music.
Bruce: Of course you have to thank the music, Fozzie.......just not for everything.
Fozzie: Really? In that case.....Have you heard the one about.....
Kermit: Okay, Fozzie, that was great! We'll see you next time on The Muppet Show!
(Goodnights: Kermit, Fozzie, Zoot, Floyd, Janice, Animal and a few penguins from the opening number)
Statler: What exactly is a Tenth Avenue-Freeze Out?
Waldorf: A verb to describe the bear's talent!
Wow.....I haven't done an outline in forever. I did this with a headache, too. This outline is alright, although I did like the part where I added Clarence Clemmons in. (R.I.P Clarence). I hope you all enjoyed this outline! There will be more to come!
Poor Piggy... She's exhausted, then Link ruins her hair! I loved the whole thing, especially Fozzie and the saxophone.
R.I.P. Clarence Clemmons.
This is way so cool, MissMusical12. I can rest to assure you that Miss Piggy is born to attack or even karate chop.
Fozzie... okay so he isn't a musican, but he sings and tells jokes.
I wish I was born to run like Bruce.
I love it!
I figured you would like this one, since this was the perfect one to include Zoot in.
