Muppet show: John Cleese
Guest star John Cleese uses an ancient Himalayan technique to heal Gonzo the Great, whose right arm has been elongated as a result of catching a cannonball. In other highlights: a Muppet country band performs; Cleese plays a pirate in an installment of "Pigs in Space"; Kermit's nephew, Robin, and Sweetums the Monster sing a duet; Kermit the Frog reports from planet Koozebane, where he interviews a liquid substance that is consumed by Koozebanians; and a gang of Muppets force Cleese to perform a musical number.
