Kermit has a crush on Linda, so Piggy locks him in a trunk filled with Gonzo's fungus collection. Linda finds him, and they share a romantic moment, but Piggy locks him up again and drags the trunk onstage during "Pigs in Space".


Highlights

  • Linda Ronstadt sings "Blue Bayou" and "I've Got a Crush On You".
  • Pining over Kermit, Linda sings "It's In His Kiss" with Janice.
  • Rowlf sings a version of "The Cat Came Back".
  • For the closing number, Linda sings "When I Grow Too Old to Dream" to Kermit.


Notes

  • The 1981 book Of Muppets and Men features a chapter on the making of the "Blue Bayou" number.
  • Almost fifteen years later, a track on the 1994 Kermit Unpigged CD reprises the plot of this episode. Kermit and Linda sing a duet of "All I Have To Do is Dream," and apparently they still have a crush on each other.


Quotes

Linda: "Kermit, thank you for singing this song with me, even though I know your heart still belongs to Piggy."
Kermit: "Well, you may know that, and Piggy may know that -- but the vote's not in yet from the frog."
