Carol Burnett arrives at the theater and is annoyed to find that Gonzo has scheduled a dance marathon to take place during the show. Highlights include Burnett battling to perform a ballad among a company of whirling dancers; dancing with the unruly Animal in the dance marathon; and valiantly attempting to perform her 'lonely asparagus sketch', in which she is dressed as an asparagus stalk. In an installment of the ongoing saga "Pigs in Space," Miss Piggy is swallowed whole by an alien while Capt. Link Hogthrob and Doctor Strangepork dance with each other.
