    Does anyone have clips, or the entire show, anywhere?

    I would love to see it, to hear the puppeteers who played the characters!

    Was that the one with John Kennedy as Kermit and someone else as Gonzo, etc? I always wondered what was up with that, but I wouldn't mind seeing it too. I've been really curious about that one.

    I was just looking for clips from this show this morning.

    I believe Disney was trying out the idea of having understudies for the main performers. They would do it again a few years later when Artie Esposito stood in for Steve.

    By the way, if anyone wants to hear Victor Yerrid's Piggy, check out any of her appearances on Robot Chicken.

    Oh, so America's Got Talent wasn't the first time? Anyway, I'll have to check out some of those Robot Chicken clips when I get a chance.

    Was John Kennedy performing Kermit in those Robot Chicken appearances?

    Victor was Kermit, as well. As far as I know, he and Drew Massey are the only Muppet performers that have done RC. (Drew was Gonzo and Fozzie in the "Who's Killing the Muppets" skit and Wembley and Boober in the "Fraggle Rock" skit).

    RE: "Robot Chicken," another clip with (I believe) Drew Massey portraying Gonzo. Or maybe it's Victor Yerrid? Any experts on the second tier performers know?

    It sounds like Drew. For some reason, Victor was Fozzie on Muppets Ahoy, while Drew was Fozzie on Robot Chicken. Robot Chicken probably had nothing to do with understudies. I posted on the undersutdy forum the list of everybody who auditioned to be an understudy for the major Muppets (sourced from a Gabriel Velez interview)
