Opening drumroll
Kermit the Frog Hello there, and welcome to The Muppet Show Fan Club!
Fozzie Bear Hello, everybody!
The Muppets all try to speak at once, greeting the new Fan Club member. The noise settles down into "The Muppet Show Theme" (2nd season version), which ends with Gonzo attempting to blow his trumpet.
Gonzo Honk! Toot!
Kermit Uh, Gonzo, what happened to your trumpet?
Gonzo I ate it!
Kermit Of course. Uh, hello out there, everybody, and, uh, welcome to The Muppet Show Fan Club!

Gonzo Sam! Sam! Lookit! Lookit! I wanna show you something! Look at these chickens! I glued 'em together!
A chorus of glued-together chickens start clucking, somewhat musically.
Sam Will you get these things away from me, you geek?! I don't want these chickens here, Kermit! Kermit, did you hear me?
Kermit Uh, yeah, well, okay, well, can we get the chickens out of here?
Dr. Teeth Hey, yeah, we'll bring in the monsters! The monsters will take the chickens out...
Sam No, no, no, no, no!
The usual chaos ensues, until it settles down and we hear the closing theme, which of course ends with...
Waldorf Well, what do you think of this Muppet Show Fan Club, Statler? Shall we join?
Statler Why, are we coming apart?
Both Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho!
The theme finishes with a blast from Zoot's sax.
