Detailed Performance List

Picture Description
"Tweedle Dee"

Jaye P. Morgan and Youknow Bird perform the song as Jaye P. complains about the cuteness of the show in general, and the odor of her bird costume in particular.

The Swedish Chef: Coconut

The Chef hammers and saws a coconut, trying to crack it. When he finally gets it open, he discovers a bomb inside it. After the sketch, Waldorf finds a bomb in the theater box, and it explodes.

Backstage, Kermit discusses Jaye with Fozzie, but then learns that the cake he sent to her was baked by Crazy Harry. Harry blows the cake up with enough force to knock the door off its hinges, and Kermit sends Fozzie to introduce the next act while he tends to Jaye.
Gonzo's Act: "Flight of the Bumblebee"

Gonzo plays "The Flight of the Bumblebee" on a trumpet accompanied by Rowlf on the piano. A small bumblebee starts flying around and Animal chases the bumblebee with a club.

At the Dance

All the jokes revolve around one dancer saying what is wrong with someone (men, women, the other dancer) and then their partner answering with a punch line.

UK Spot: "English Country Garden"

"English Country Garden" is performed as a piano duet by Rowlf and Fozzie. Both are surprised to learn that Fozzie can play piano at all. As the music gets exciting, Fozzie loses his hat.

Talk Spot: Jaye P. Morgan

Kermit talks to Jaye P. Morgan about how explosions are one of the Muppets' trademarks.
