    According to abc's website, on Sunday, March 6, 8/7c, The Muppets will be on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

    "Who knew Kermit and Miss Piggy had a knack for design? Extreme Makeover: Home Edition -- along with the help of a special team of Muppets -- gives a home makeover to the family of America's first-ever set of surviving African American sextuplets.

    When Diamond Harris was pregnant, she was put on bed-rest and had to leave her nursing job. Husband Chris's salary as a third-grade teacher wasn't sufficient to cover their expenses, and soon they found their home in foreclosure. Fortunately their wonderful neighbors rallied around them and raised enough money to stop the bank proceedings. But the 2000-sq. ft., three-bedroom house was in desperate need of repair, and matters were made worse when Hurricane Ivan sent a tree crashing through the living room, which had become the children's playroom.

    Because there were so many children in the family, design team leader Ty Pennington thought some "child experts" should be brought in to help. The Muppets themselves heeded his call, along with Florence Henderson -- "Mrs. Brady" herself!"

    This certainly sounds interesting! I'm anxious to see how it goes.

    Oh, man. The Muppets AND EM:HE? Oh, there is no way in Hoboken that I'm missing that episode! Definately going to have to record it; it's going to be a keeper.

    Although that makes me wonder, Kermit and Piggy are making an appearance on Home Edition, will they show up in the March 7 episode of How'd They Do That?

    This sounds very cool and shows the Muppets can fit into different TV genres without it hopefully looking too tacky or like they are selling out from what they usually do. It sounds like an apt concept for them to get involved with and the whole team of Muppets thing sounds like more than just the usual guys are being used so they are obviously putting a lot of effort into the appearances.

    So has this already aired? On the thing it seemed that it aired Feb 20. Is this right or are they going to show it March or what?

    Correct. Don't forget to watch on Monday as well for the behind-the-scenes look at "How Did They Do That?" on ABC. The appearance is featured on MC's home page by the way.

    Here is some additional info on the appearances from ABC's site.

    Hey there, little message from the old UK. Will someone be able to give transcripty-bits from this? Any information from it would be great, but if people are filming it I'd love to have some of the actual Muppet lines and so on.
