706 The Muppet of Invention.jpg

After Uncle Statler and Uncle Waldorf talk about how they hardly had any of the things that the babies had when they were their age, the Muppet Babies decide to make their own inventions. While most of the babies play themselves as inventors, Baby Fozzie plays Fozzieleo and Ben Franklin, Baby Scooter plays a young Thomas Edison, and Baby Gonzo is the busy patent office clerk.


  • "We've Got a Nose for the Future"


  • A clip from The Three Stooges short Disorder in the Court (1936) is used when the babies try to come up with a musical coat.
  • Baby Scooter as "Tommy Edison" is caught in an explosion and resembles the title character in Young Einstein.
  • The babies play Rat Trap, a spoof of the Hasbro board game Mouse Trap.
