Ernie Gordon Anything.jpg
Muppets / Cast Gordon encounters Ernie, who is sad because everyone is too busy to play with him. Gordon produces a blank Anything Muppet, names him "Harvey" and puts some facial features on him β€” first he's a poet who would rather think of rhymes than play with Ernie, then he's sad, then he's angry. Gordon solves this by modifying Harvey's face to look more like Ernie's, and sees that the two of them seem to have everything else in common. "I think Ernie just made a friend," says Gordon.

SCENE 3 Gordon and Lance observe some gerbils in a cage. Gordon explains how they're related to the rodent family and where they came from. He adds that if they were on film, they'd be easier to watch because you can start and stop the picture.
Film "What if you were magic, and could make things stop just by telling it to, or make it go backwards? Stop! Then you could see what things look like when they're moving. Go forwards! Stop! Well, film is magic, and this is a film, so you can be magic for three minutes. Like this: Go slow, water fountain! Now, you try it."
