    Paul Lynde/Season 2

    SCOOTER:"Paul Lynde,ten seconds till curtain Paul."

    Bunsun introduces a new liquid drink that cures the common flu.But when Beaker demonstrates by drinking a glass of it,he instantly gets the ears and tail of a donkey.

    Paul Lynde socialises with Miss Piggy.They both get thirsty and decide to get a glass of water.But as it turns out,the ingredients for Bunsun's new invention are somehow used in the canteen by accident.After they both take a drink,Miss Piggy gets the donkey ears and tail.

    MISS PIGGY:"Oh yeah,we'll see who's a *******.HYYAH"

    SCOOTER:"You didn't by any chance get that glass of water from the canteen did you boss?"
    KERMIT:"Well,uh,yes.But nothing's happened to me yet."He no sooner gets his own donkey ears and tail.
    SCOOTER:"Uh sir,I wouldn't look in the mirror if I were you."
    KERMIT:"Why Piggy,what happened to you?"
    MISS PIGGY:"The same thing that happened to him."(referring to Paul Lynde)
    KERMIT:"This is terrible,you're due onstage for your"Pigs In Space"number."
    MISS PIGGY:"Well I can't go onstage looking like this."

    MISS PIGGY:"One word out of you Floyd."(shows her fist)"This is all your fault Honeydew.HYYAH"(karate chops Bunsun)

    First Mate Piggy wears a bandana to cover up her donkey ears.She manages to hide her tail as well.When Captain Link Hogthrob and Professor Strangepork question her about her outfit,she comes up with all kinds of excuses.Until her tail accidently sticks out.When she tries to hide it again,her bandana falls off,completely blowing her cover.
    Hogthrob and Strangepork begin to laugh.
    FIRST MATE PIGGY:"There is nothing to laugh at here."

    KERMIT:"Paul you've just got to go on."
    PAUL LYNDE:"Looking like a mule,are you out of your little green mind?"
    KERMIT:"Well how do you think I feel,having to introduce every number,looking like Kermit The Mule?"
    PAUL LYNDE:"I see your point.Oh well,when ya gotta ya gotta."
    Muppet donkey enters:"Is this Old MacDonald's farm?"

    Paul Lynde performs a jazzy version of"Old MacDonald Had A Farm".Rowlf as the dog,instantly gets donkey ears and tail.When they get to the chickens,the chickens themselves get donkey ears and tails,followed by the cow,and pigs.

    (all with donkey ears and tails)
    Paul Lynde
    Miss Piggy
