Fozzie's Muppet Scrapbook was released by Playhouse Video in 1985, as part of a series of compilations featuring songs and sketches from The Muppet Show.

In this one hour special, Fozzie Bear presents a collection of his best comedy routines, and other favorite skits and songs from the show.

Muppet Show guest stars include Raquel Welch, Beverly Sills, and Milton Berle.

While many of the other videos use the fifth season closing theme, this video ends with the version from seasons three and four.
