The Muppets on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" March 6

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.

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

Fozzie helped carpenter Paul DiMeo construct a special photo frame for DeWayne's room. Kermit competed with Ty by running around with a mini-bullhorn to warn everyone how much time was left before the family was due home. Animal helped load furniture into the house. And Miss Piggy performed like the diva she is by demanding a script for her lines while shamelessly flirting with Ty.
