I want to see everybody on their feet, in the pink

And full of beans!

Or not.

Somebody roll the opening titles!

Ahh! Ahh! Ahh!

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!

Hi, there, and welcome to tonight's show.

Didn't you get the message?

You're supposed to be wearing a pith helmet.

He's like that.

When we go to a nice restaurant, he refuses to put on a tie.

We're dressing tropical

Because later we're showing a timely tale of the jungle

Called "The song of the cloud forest."

 five years without a date

And I'm acting like everything's hunky-dory.

Don't blame yourself.

But first, "Muppetelevision" with Kermit the Frog in charge.

Kermit, what have you got?

Our very special guest star is smokey robinson.

What's the theme?

The theme is "Health in all its aspects."

Like, for instance, sickness.

( starts to sneeze )



Digit, good grief, you've got a cold?

( blows nose )

It's a bad one, too.

I just blew my nose, a fuse and three circuit breakers.

It was a mystery.

They all seemed alike.

Which one had the fewest calories?

The answer was staring at me.

New ultimate 90.

The lowest calories per ounce.

Mmm, deliciously fruity.

Weight watchers ultimate 90.

This is living.


 but bird, you don't understand.

I passed out

I don't know where I got this book

And I've got this big lump on my head.

No excuses, link.

Kermit wants everybody out for a jog

Around the parking lot.

Let's go.

It looks like a medical dictionary.

See what it says about lumps on the head.


I've got all the symptoms!

Lumps on the head

Bouts of unconsciousness and amnesia.

Vicky! ( screams )

I've got canadian snout fever!

( melodramatic chords play )

Excuse me, but I've got to find smokey robinson.

"In extreme cases

Dialogue: 0,0:04:24.76,0:04:28.26,default,,0,0,0,,{\a1\pos(123,460

The victim hears strange noises and voices."

Where is everybody?

( screams )

Hey, link...

Oh, no! They know my name!

Everybody, follow me into the control room.

Nothing like a jog around the parking lot

To put mind and body in perfect harmony.

We're ready for the opening number.

Where is everybody?

You should be in the recording studio.

Kermit, is this the band

I'm using for my song?

Yeah, we're just trying to get in shape.

You're in shape-- bad shape.

Got that right.

Sorry I'm late.

I went around twice.

Way to go, clifford.

Now, ladies and gentlemen-- if you're ready back there--

Here's smokey robinson and solid foam!

Way to go!

Uh, gonzo...

It's all right, kermit.

I was just cleaning my nose

And it went off.

( laughs )





Digit, how's your cold?

I've got a cold.

I can't hear you.

How do you feel?

Oh, how do I feel?

Well, usually I just stretch my arms out

And do squinchy things with my fingers.

And then sometimes I do kind of...

Oh, patty stuff.

And then, I...

Oh, kermit, I am sorry.

I was doing squinchy things on your eyeballs.

It was relaxing

In a nerve-racking sort of way.

Why, thank you.

Digit, can we see the exercise show?



How do I feel?

Just push the button.

Yes, sir.

Welcome to "Beanacise"--

The only exercise program on earth

Designed to make you cute.

Now, follow me, everybody.

Two, three, four...

Jump and press and press and jump!

Don't just sit there like a lump!

And hop, hop, hop, hoppity-hop!

Hop, hop, hop, hoppity-hop!

Hippity-hop, hippity-hop, hippity-hop...

Keep that up

And you'll have a heart attack

Before the show's over!

I certainly hope so.

Hip, hip, hip... ( laughs )

It's the bunny hug!

Let's try one for the...

No, that's not...

( gasps )


Ha-ha! Ha-ha!

That was great!

The show?

No, I just swallowed my teeth.

( laughing )

Mr. Link--

What are you doing in that wheelchair?

It's one of the symptoms of canadian snout fever.

The legs go.

How dreadful!

Your legs are gone?

No, but I don't want to be standing up when they do.

I have some pride.

That's one of those silly diseases.

It may be silly to you-- you're not dying from it.

Gosh, mr. Hogthrob

You're looking a bit glum.

Leave me alone.

Says here I've only hours to live.

Those hours can be hours of fun.

I have just the thing for you.

Say hello to mr. Balloon.

What's that, mr. Balloon?

You want to know what's wrong

With our friend?

Let's ask him.

I know what mr. Balloon wants to know!

It's only a matter of hours before my snout explodes.

( explosion )

Aw, too bad.

My snout...

Well, looks like your new friend

Had to go away.

That happens sometimes.

It's called death!

( melodramatic chords )


I need a doctor.

And whom is it doth seek the wizard's help this day?

A guy with a sword through his head.


( armor clanking )

Will you sit down and be quiet?

I've heard of loud suits

But this is ridiculous.

What's the problem?

I can't sleep.

Are you a knight? Yes.

Are you a good knight? Yes.

What you need is a good night's sleep!


Anything else?

I got this headache.

Is it a sharp, stabbing pain?


Like you got a sword through your head?

Yes, what is it?

I haven't the faintest idea.


Sounds like stress.

What do you do?

I joust dragons

And I rescue damsels in distress.

Dat's not a dress--

Dat's a suit of armor.


Get out of here!

The dragons aren't the problem;

It's those giant things in the forest.

Those crazy things?

Yes, what can I do about them?

I suggest you take cole porter's advice.

You mean...? Yes.

♪ "Joust" one of those things... ♪

Joust one of those crazy things?


Says here that there's a traditional remedy

For your problem.

Oh, good.

What is it?


( screams )

Or was it talcum powder?


He who can pull the sword free will be the king.

Will be the king?

That was a show for the '80s?

Sure, the 1380s.

( starts to sneeze )

( soft sneeze )

Kermit, you should rope yourself

To a heavy piece of equipment.

Rope myself to... Why?

Because some of the monsters

Have caught my cold.

Which monsters?

Mainly the bigger ones.

( monster starts to sneeze )

Even though everybody seems to be getting sick

I think our health and fitness show

Is going extremely well.

Yoo-hoo, mr. Kermit?

It's dr. Bunsen honeydew of muppet labs.

What can I do for you?

Are you doing a show

About health and fitness?


What a perfect time for me

To demonstrate my new invention.

Let's see it.

Thank you.

Exercise is often far from the thoughts

Of today's busy executive

Such as the one portrayed by my lovely assistant, beaker.

But neglecting one's exercise is a thing of the past

With muppet labs' new exercise-omatic boots.


Set the timer and a gentle chime alerts you

That your pre-programmed workout is about to begin.

( timer ticking )

( loud alarm )

First, the boots warm you up

With a series of gentle stretches.

To the left...

And to the right...

Both together...

And wide apart.


( crash )

Then it's time for jogging.


Recognizing the spatial limitations

Of the corporate work space

The boots are designed to use every open surface

As you are about to see.

But exercise must never supersede

Executive responsibilities.

Therefore, the boots stop automatically

At the sound of a ringing telephone.

( telephone rings )

Oh, no!

( telephone rings )

( screams )

Muppet labs' technology for a healthier you.

Beaker can't come to the phone right now

But leave a message at the sound of the meep.

( meep )


Hiya, linky babe.

How goes the canaan snout fever?

The end is near.

That's a shame.

Yes, I've been studying the book.

Just before the end, the legs go

Your snout explodes

And then you begin mispronouncing words.

Doom, doom, doom...

That's dumb, dumb, dumb!

Oh, no!

I'm mispronouncing words!

Help, mommy!

And now...

Our fitness special continues with a look at nutrition.

Cue the health food, joe.

( singing in gibberish )

( dishes break )

( speaking gibberish )



Look at this cake, my friends!

It is a dietary nightmare!

( argues in gibberish )

No, no, no!

Diet today is all about survival

And the cockroach

Is the greatest survivor on the planet!

I am indestructible!

Absolutely indestructible!

And why?

Because we eat to win.

You eat the cheese; we eat the mold.

You drink coffee; we eat the coffee grounds.

The way of the roach is the way of the future.

Now, let me give you a little quiz, okay?

You get the nibblies

And you reach for a: the peanuts

B: the chocolate...

Or c: the refrigerator.

By choosing "C", you have opted for survival.

Question number two: you are on a low-cal diet

But you are invited to eat at a nice french restaurant.

How do you avoid breaking your dietary rules?

( explosion )

( speaking gibberish )

And the correct answer is, stay at home and eat linoleum.

Bon appetit!

Good grief, what a mess.

What's the matter, kerm?

I'm trying to do this health show

And everybody keeps getting sick or injured.

It's too bad people don't take

A holistic approach to health.


There are many ways

You can protect yourself

Against negative influences.

See this crystal?

It focuses my life force

And channels positive attitudes.

I could use one of those.

Bring your head around here.


Right under here.

There you go.

Wear it in good health.

Thank you, clifford.

( hits floor )

Sure, resting is good, too.

( laughs )

I may have fractured a flipper.

Cue the story.

Way back when the roads were still wiggly

And people lived closer to the land

A farmer was about to start work

When suddenly, he heard an unfamiliar voice.

Hey, mr. Farmer-- over here.

What was that?

It was me, old cabbage head.

It gets pretty cold in this field.

I was wondering, could you take me home?

A talking cabbage!

Farmer: I'm home!

Cabbage: me, too!

Glory be!

What's that?

It's a talking cabbage--

The greatest miracle the world has ever seen.

Don't stand there.

Sit him down.

I'll put him by the fire.

Thanks! You won't regret this!

The next day

The farmer carefully counted his blessings.

One: a talking cabbage.

Two: a fine piece of real estate.

What was that?

Let's face it--

The subdevelopment potential of this property is fantastic.

A talking cow!

One thing puzzles me--

How come the cabbage gets to live inside?

Nice place you got here.

We like it.

You really like this talking animal stuff.

Yes, I think of it as a blessing.

Good, then this should make your day.

In here, boys.

How's it going?

How about that cold snap?

How about those rams?

So during the next few days

It seemed that everything in the whole world

Had started talking to the farmer.

And it seemed to his wife

That the farmer had asked everything in the whole world

Into their little cottage

Until things had come to a head!

This is a very bad arrangement.

God made houses, and god made barns

So that human beings

Wouldn't have to live with animals.


So the farmer and his wife did the sensible thing

And moved into the barn

Where they lived reasonably happy ever after.

Our lives were blessed with a miracle.

Let's not become ungrateful.

Hi, I'm your skirt.

Hi, I'm your apron.

Hi, I'm your glove.

I'm your hat.

I'm your blanket!

Good story.

Oh, gonzo, how's your nose?

It's not my nose I'm worried about.

It's the chickens.

Know what happens

When a chicken catches a cold?

No, what?

( chicken sneezes )

They don't weigh very much...

( chickens sneezing )

But they have very powerful sneezes.

Hey, kermit!

Yeah, smokey?

Is it my imagination

Or is everybody on this show sick?

We think it's just sort of a 24-hour flu.

I can't wait--

I got a closing number to do.

Do you mind working with jet-propelled chickens?

That's my favorite way to work!

Cue the finale!

There's just one thing.

What's that?

I'm a big link hogthrob fan.

We could use him on this closing number.

Link: closing number?

I'm sorry, but link is really sick.

Aren't you, link?

It's a miracle!

Hey, I work with miracles!

Okay, take it away, smokey.

Beau loves whiskas

Like nothing else

He's ever tried.

The very first time we tried it

Beau loved it.

What a difference.

I wish we had known about it earlier

Because he would've been eating it

His whole life.

" ]@

Tonight's story is visually stunning

And has a lovely script by david young.

It's called "The song of the cloud forest."

( chirping song )

I can't believe

How you just puff up and do that!

You got to use the abdominals, wilf.

The abdominals, yeah.




For a second there

I thought I heard her.

What does she sound like, milton?

It's the most beautiful song

In the rain forest--

Kind of husky and wistful.

Husky and wistful?

Hey, you got to be a golden toad.

Do you think she'll answer you?

All I can do is hope.

And practice my mating call

Until, one day

I smell her musky perfume on the breeze.

( sniffs )

( chirping )

Maybe if I join you...

( raucous calling )

( two calls alternating, more beginning )

( percussion )

( animals' calling becomes music )

( three-note melody )

( melody modulated )

( repeats last )

( melody )

( repeats )

( modulated )

( repeats )

( melody expanded )

( crunch )

( music stops )

Jack? Did you hear music?


That's just mother nature clearing her throat.

Really-- I heard what I heard.

Hey-- it's music to my ears, too.

I love this little spot.

I think they might cut all of this down.

Sometimes this place makes me feel

Like I'm in church.

Tell me about it.

Do you think there are any golden toads left

In this cloud forest?

Mr. Toad is not only endangered;

He's virtually extinct.

Oh, no!

Don't go all blue, blanche.

The uprights don't know anything.


If we're ever going to get a male specimen

This is the place.

This is the only spot I've ever heard one singing.

Let's check the trap we set yesterday.


Did you hear

What the uprights said about milton?

Virtually extinct.

Who, miss blanche?

I think someone should at least tell him.

If milton is really doomed

What good does telling him do?

Yes-- all the little guy ever talks about

Is how lonely he's feeling.

You're absolutely right.

That kind of news might put him right over the top.

We've got to do something

Or the uprights will capture him!

Excuse me, miss chameleon.

You're starting to throb.


You're good with bad news;

Go up and talk with him.

But what does one say?

Give him the straight goods.

And tell him... We love him.

Nice color, blanche.


They've come to capture you

Before you disappear completely.

Oh, no!

I knew I was rare.

You don't sing an unanswered mating song for five years

Without twigging to that.

But endangered?

Virtually extinct-- their words.

Virtually extinct?

( crying )

We want you to know

That we love you, milton.

Milton, the last golden toad--

I can't stand it...

Hey, come on, wilf--

Later with the tears, all right?

But I'm going to miss you.

But I'm not extinct yet.

Why should I believe them?

Maybe they're wrong.

Maybe these woods are teeming with females.

Why hasn't one of them answered your mating song?


Maybe I'm in the wrong spot.

That's got to be it!

I've been sitting up here in the treetops

Waiting for them to come to me.

Come on! Let's go.

Go where?

Wilf, concentrate!

To the forest floor.

I got to get down there

And get my act together.

Talk to

Your friends, milton.

Good idea.

Hang on.

Why didn't I see it coming?

Here I am, five years without a date.

Don't blame yourself, milton.

It's not a question of blame;

I'm just no mentally prepared for extinction.

Milton: I just know there are females out there.

Maybe there's some problem with my song.

I mean, I am self-taught.

The only problem is if you sing

The uprights will catch you.


You should just roll up in a tight ball

And hide under a big rock.

He may be a golden toad but he's not yellow.

Here's the point, guys:

It's a sing-or-die situation.

If I was you, I'd sing right now.

Hey, guys... No, he mustn't!

Sing! Sing! No!

This is not helpful!

You got to sing.

No, it could be suicide.

Wait! Whenever a creature disappears

It affects all of us.

Quetzal is right.

Remember what happened

When we lost the ruby-tailed hummingbird?

It's bingo-bango- bongo, brother--

One good-bye leads to another.

Right down the line.

It will be like that if you disappear, milton.

Milton's paradise lost-- forever.

Oh, I've just got to find a mate.

It looks like our female didn't attract any boyfriends.

Maybe she's been in captivity for so long

She's forgotten what to do.

No way-- she's giving off

Her scent molecules right now.

But why doesn't she sing?

Don't worry--

If there's another golden toad here

She'll sing.

I hope so.

This whole thing

Makes me feel very uncomfortable.

So what will you do, milton?

I guess I'll just have to go

Where no toad has gone before--

Find someplace where I can sing my song

Without having to worry about the uprights.



( sniffs )

Do you smell what I smell?

I know--

Nick's about to shed his skin.

I beg your pardon?


There's a female golden toad, and...

She's headed this way!

Are you sure?

Of course-- I've waited all my life for this.

How do I look?

Kind of slimy, actually.

Thank goodness.

Quick, baby-- do your song.

( chirps golden toad song )

All I'm trying to say is I've never felt good

About putting creatures in cages.

In this case, what option do we have?

If we want to save the golden toad

We have to capture a male...


It's a male.

( milton singing )

And he's close.

( milton singing )

( hooting call )

( milton singing )

Sounding good, milton.

( hooting )

That's an alarm call.

What's wrong?

Uprights, and they're closing fast!

Everybody-- fade in!

( singing )

Milton, stop-- the uprights will capture you!

Talk about magic moments-- she's getting closer.

( milton chirps )

He's just up ahead.

Somebody do something!




Quick, come help me look.

They've got a female!

I have to meet her.

Whoa! A gorgeous female was in here.

Be careful, milton!

Oh, that musky perfume.

Let's go find the others before the uprights come back.

 okay, now we just gently press the female scent glands

Right behind the ear hole, like that.

There, see? That didn't hurt, did it?

There we go.

Ah... Now we've got that male surrounded

By scented traps.

I was sure about all this.

Come on-- he might cheer us up.

It's like the whole valley is changing or something.

Funny, we were just talking about that the other day.

The uprights are making a major movement here.

Hey, did I notice--

The whole valley is a smoldering ruin!

Yeah, all you hear down there is chain saws.

And the uprights say poor milton is

Headed for extinction.

Hey, miltie!

Extinction-- tough patooties!

Hey, I'm not extinct yet.

The uprights are holding a female hostage

And I'm going to rescue her.

You'd better stay out of it.


Yeah! I know these uprights.

A couple of million of them live around my tree up north.


Maybe they got big plans.

O@ I've never understood what the uprights actually do

With all the rain forest they cut down.

Good question.

Yes-- what do they do with it?

Uh... Do with it?

Well, actually, as far as I know

They... They eat it!

I had no idea they were so bloodthirsty.

You'd be a instant hors d'oeuvre, miltie.

There's no hope; we're powerless.

The uprights will do whatever they want.

They do tend to control the flow of events.

Where are you going?

I want to be alone for a while.

But you've never left your tree at night.

It's dangerous down here.

Easy, wilf.

He needs to sort this out himself.


I guess when things get this bad

There's no point in feeling or thinking anything.

( roar )

Why worry?

If things can't get any worse no matter what you do...

Why bother doing anything?

But if I don't do anything at all, then...

Oh, it's no use.

The arguments just keep going around in circles.

If only there were some way to rescue her.

We'd settle down and fill these treetops with baby toads.

I guess it's too late for happy endings now.

Care to bet on it?

Relax, I don't eat toads.

What do you want from me?

I'm an elder.

Perhaps I can help you.

Nobody can help me now.

According to the uprights

I'm about to disappear.

We were here long before the uprights came.

We may be here long after they're gone.

But I'm the one on the verge of extinction.

What do I do?

Listen to your heart.

Why to my heart?

Your heart connects you to all living things.

What do I do?

Nothing will change

Until the uprights learn to listen.


Stand your ground.

Help them learn to listen.

Help them learn to listen?

Listen to what?

All I know is one dinky little song.

( sighs )

Still-- it's worth a try.

( begins song )

( other animals join in with their own songs )

Looks like he sprung this one.

He's picked up her scent.


Oh, no! Poor milton, he just can't help himself.

His song never sounded so beautiful.

( singing )

Oh, listen to her.

Yeah, it's working like a charm.

She'll call him right in.

( singing )

This whole thing is breaking my heart.

These defenseless little creatures.

Never mind your heart.

We've got ourselves a male.

This is looking very bad.

And sounding very good.

The whole forest is joining in.

( all singing )

I've never heard anything like this.

It's as if the entire rain forest is trying

To tell us something.


We can't do this.


It's not just one species at risk

It's everyone-- it's us!

( milton singing )

What are you doing?

I'm letting her go.


She belongs here.


That may be the last golden toad we ever see.

Not if we let nature take its course.

You're something else, you know that?

( sigh )

Uh... Hi.


Uh... ( gulp )

Th-th-the name is milton.

Milton? What a lovely name.

I'm ruth.

Oh, ruth is a very pretty name, too.


Look, I'm not good

At this aspect of the courting ritual.

I've been alone a lot.

Me, too.

Cooped up in one tree...

Was yours a mahogany?

Oh, yes, mahogany, absolutely--

For stability and comfort.

And that bark fungus

That attracts the speckled dragonflies?

Oh, I keep a huge garden!

Six kinds of bark fungus!

It's nice to meet someone who appreciates fungus.

Yes-- and so many creatures don't.

Heinz ketchup...

It's so rich...

So thick...

Why waste time with anything else?

Heinz ketchup.

The best things come to those who wait.

The reason milton is endangered

Is that our rain forests are disappearing.

Did you know that?

It matters to guys like this.

It matters to guys like us, too.


You're wearing a tie-- that's terrific.

Means we can go to a nice restaurant for a change.

We'll see you next week.
