The Spoon in the Stone

When Kermit tells a story about the Spoon in the Stone, Animal, Gonzo, and Piggy race off on a quest to become the greatest knight. Rowlf, Rizzo and Dot the Dragon also appear. Phineas T. Cup appears as a fountain statue.

  • Kermit the Barde narrates the story in song to a repeating tune. In the end, the other characters chime in.


When Gonzo loses his library book, he tells tall tales to cover the truth. Mr. Manny, Bunsen and Beaker, Camilla, Priscilla, Beep, and the Bad Eggs also appear.



  • Both titles and their respective storylines are spoofs of literary works: "The Spoon in the Stone" spoofs the legendary King Arthur saga (as well as Disney's 1963 animated feature film The Sword in the Stone), while "Gonzonocchio" spoofs Pinocchio.
