Muppet show: Harry Belafonte
Guest star Harry Belafonte is joined by the Muppets to perform "The Banana Boat Song". In the ongoing saga of "Pigs in Space," Doctor Strangepork demonstrates a new kind of ray gun, with disastrous results for the Swinetrek crew. Other highlights include: Belafonte in a drum duel with Animal; a Muppet sports event called "Blindfold Sprint"; and Fozzie Bear attempting to write a script for the show. At the conclusion, Belafonte explains how he writes songs and performs "Turn the World Around," an original composition based on a story from New Guinea.
