The Muppet Show
Guest Linda Ronstadt
Production May 27-30, 1980
Releases Best of the Muppet Show



Kermit has a crush on Linda, so Miss 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".



  • 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.
