Guest Juliet Prowse pays Kermit the Frog a compliment by calling him the "Robert Redford of frogs." Highlights include: Fozzie Bear's comedy routine; a pair of Snowth singing a tune that a hippie muppet disrupts, insisting on his own mahnamahna harmony; a modern ballet performance by Prowse; the Muppet Players' presentation of "Cowboy Time," in which Fozzie Bear's attempt to hold up a saloon is remembered as the day Kid Fozzie came to town; and appearances by Statler and Waldorf, who comment on the show from their box seats. The program concludes with the Muppet Glee Club singing "Temptation," featuring a solo by Miss Piggy, who ends the song by smothering Kermit, the choral director.
