Paul Simon plays a wandering minstrel in a medieval village and is joined by the Muppets in a satirical performance of "Scarborough Fair". In other highlights: the Muppet Band performs Simon's song "Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover"; Simon sings "It's Been a Long, Long Day"; and, with the Muppets on backup, Simon closes the show with "Loves Me Like a Rock".
