KermitCookieLuisBanana.jpg
Muppets / Cast Luis has four things lined up in a row - a harmonica, a whistle, a trumpet, and a banana. He tells Kermit that one of these doesn't belong, and Kermit chooses the banana because you can make music with the instruments, but you eat the banana... or so he thinks. Luis blows into the banana and appears to be playing a horn until he reveals he was honking a horn behind his back the whole time. Amused by the trick, they decide to play the same joke on Cookie Monster, but Cookie has a different idea--you eat the harmonica, whistle, and trumpet, and make beautiful music with the banana.
