Muppet Babies
Air Date October 19, 1985
Written by Jeffrey Scott

The babies put on their own version of ‘Snow White’ but Piggy is frustrated when she doesn't get the lead role.


After seeing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the babies decide to make their own Snow White. Piggy is upset that she loses a coin toss against Skeeter for the role of Snow White, and Piggy is left with the role of the Wicked Queen. Piggy acts diva like and thinks Skeeter is too ugly to be Snow White. The Muppets put on their own show, including a weird twist that only Gonzo could devise (namely the Seven Dwarves owning a beauty salon and hiring Snow White as an apprentice). Queen Piggy disguises herself as a kindly old lady who comes to the salon while Skeeter is alone, then scares Snow White into shock. The whole thing comes to an end with an argument over Kermit as the Prince kissing Skeeter (Snow White), which Kermit defuses by pointing out the show must go on and him kissing Skeeter is for the sake of their production.
