    Well even if no-one has any answer to my question as to who wrote it that is irrelevant.
    I just like to bump up my favourite threads every once in a while to see if anybody adds any sort of comment to them at all

    The John Denver episode would haveta be one of my faves, party because it had that on it. Every time I watch it I crack up, lol. ;)

    It was just posted on youtube:


    I must have seen it before since I know I've seen the John Denver episode, but I don't remember. Anyway, funny sketch! Classic crazy Muppets.

    I adore this sketch! I think it's hilarious.

    Unfortunately, that song is awfully catchy. I can't tell you how long I had it stuck in my head after I saw it for the first time! :D

    It is a wonderful sketch indeed.
    It's great to be able to see it again and to share it with some of my forum friends:D

    I must admit though part of me does feel a little bit sorry for those three pigs murdered by that cold-hearted goat in the Alps heh heh;)
    But I know they're only puppets so I only feel just a minute, teensy bit sorry:D

    I can't wait for season 4 to be released so I can have it on DVD, well suppose I have no choice really.
    I only pray with all my heart it isn't cut out. Pretty please Disney.

    Well, maybe they weren't murdered, maybe they got sent to a well furnished rest home and decided happy wandering was highly overrated!

    Ha!! That's great, heralde. :D

    I can't wait for season 4 to be released, either. This episode is awesome. Love the guest, love this sketch as well as many, many others... definitely one I can't wait to see again.

    What exactly does 'valderie' mean? Where's it from I wonder?? :confused: :)

    I've always wondered that too! It's maybe German for something. But don't know what.

    If you'll read the start of my thread cgf, you will find that it was John Denver (RIP):cry:

    :D That is very hilarious indeed heralde.

    Actually I think I'll post an idea I've had that I've shared in PM with my friend Katie(kiki)

    Since all the sketches on TMS presumably took place onstage anyway I can visualize a couple of extra bits they could have included.

    First: Waldorf could have said to Statler "That was a very dark number indeed." To which Statler could have replied "Yes, but it wasn't dark enough. We could still see it."

    Second: Imagine Dr.Bob, Nurse Piggy and Nurse Janice leading those three pigs offstage in bandages and on crutches.
    One of them says to Kermit, "Mr.Frog. You said that there would be a large, soft, bouncy mattress for us to land in when we pretended to fall off the mountain prop during our dark humour number."
    And of course silly old Beauregard appears saying sheepishly, "Oh dear. I had a feeling I had forgotten something very important."

    That was a really funny little sketch, and I loved the ideas Marty, especially then one with Beauregard forgetting the mattress for them to land on.

    Ah yes, thanks for sending it to me Marty. Now I know where it came from, and what was going on during it.
    I love your joke ideas, and Heralde's speculations on where the pigs ended up.
    You know, when you said that about feeling sorry for the pigs, I was thinking; sure, you might feel sorry for them, but I'll bet you're not as sorry as the puppet builders, lol!

    Hehe, thanks I'm glad you liked my speculations!

    And yeah, I liked the behind the scenes lines, they sound like real Muppet Show moments!

    Yes, we certainly do have a lot of funny people here! I say it's all the muppet exposure!
