Kermit calls the Secret Service to hire real spies for Roger's closing number. (They're listed in the Yellow Pages.) However, Roger wants to do a cute, cuddly version of "Talk to the Animals". The spies, anxious for a chance to rub out James Bond, pose as fluffy animals to infiltrate the number.



  • The "In the Navy" number alone took a day and a half to shoot.
  • A segment of "Slow Boat to China" can be seen being performed on Of Muppets and Men.
