Muppets Tonight
Air Date December 21, 1997
Written by Jennifer Barrow, Dick Blasucci, Paul Flaherty, Darin Henry, Jim Lewis, Bernie Keating, Kirk Thatcher and Patric Verrone
Director Tom Trbovich
Prod. no. 209



Gonzo and Rizzo host a collage of video clips of the best moments from past episodes. This was because the pre-recorded episode tape had been eaten by Carl, along with the tape-playing machine during a cheese-eating contest.

As Gonzo and Rizzo walk off the stage, they notice that Statler and Waldorf have just finished broadcasting their own show titled The Worst of Muppets Tonight. Of course, they showed the exact same clips that Gonzo and Rizzo showed.



  • Apart from brief archive footage, this is the only episode not to have Clifford in it.
  • The episode, which was the last one produced, includes clips from every episode of the series except episodes 109 and 212. Since the episodes aired out of production order, it included clips from episodes 210 and 211 which hadn't aired yet.
