Apropos To An Apparently Disturbing Twitter Conversation

Don’t worry, this isn’t disturbing in itself. Unless sentient amphibians just plain freak you out. In which case: Flee now.

Mmmmm. Debbie Harry.

  1. I kept hoping that Kermit would join in on a little “Heart of Glass” during the skit.


  2. Yeah, all muppets are left-handed, on account of having the puppeteer’s right hand up their… well, you get the idea.

    Totally missed the twitter conversation, but I think I’m cool with that.

  3. Debbie Harry is not the last person I would expect to sing “Rainbow Connection”, but I would not connect her with that song automatically.

  4. Kelly Naylor – I read. A lot. And I write, and do art, and sing (but don't dance), and contemplate the great questions of the ages.

    Sigh. Like @wilw, I get a little tear in my eye whenever I hear that song. Definitely one of my favorite songs.

  5. 3. Tumbleweed – friends have a VHS collection of the best of The Muppet Show. I just checked Amazon – they have Seasons 1, 2 & 3; along with a ‘best of’ compilation on DVD.

    I loved The Muppet Show where Mark Hamill was the guest, along with Luke Skywalker, C3PO and R2D2. The ‘Pigs in Space’ segment was especially funny. :)

    One of the best episodes featured Elton John singing ‘Crocodile Rock’ with a bunch of Crocodiles. Sigh. Only on The Muppet Show.

  6. I remember my dad wondering why Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem didn’t insist on playing with Debbie (there was a weird blue-muppet backing band during her on-stage songs). Although, IIRC, Debbie and Janice had a skit together.

  7. @13. Steve.
    Only if you hadn’t the experience of being a hippy chick in the late 60’s. Ooops, showing my age here…

  8. hygoldberg – We are rude, and we are Goldbergs. At least, some of us are rude, and some of us are Goldbergs. Sometimes. Hy, I am always.

    Um, John? That was Debbie Harry. Applying perfume! In a DRESSING ROOM!
    You left out a significant number of ‘m’s from that ‘Mmmmm’ there, IMO.
    And on a related note, are you aware of an emoticon that indicates drooling?

  9. @11 BeVibe: The episodes are also available on DVD via Netflix. I’m watching season 1 right now. It’s mostly a nostalgic experience, but the show really was pretty funny and there was an amazing variety of guest stars.

  10. Martyn Taylor – Northumberland – A writer exploring what lies beyond our peripheral vision. Published by various small presses and now considered to be nearly a Proper Author. Can be found lurking around the frozen North of England, happily herding a small family of recalcitrant adults who may once have been children and a woman who may very well be the fulcrum upon which the universe turns. Available for hire for very reasonable prices.

    #12 – Keith – maybe waking up with Debbie Harry?

  11. I actually remember watching Debbie Harry’s appearance on The Muppet Show when it aired.

    Sure, I was no more than two or three years-old, but Blondie was my dad’s favorite band, so she got a lot of airtime at home.

  12. The Rainbow Connection is the song I sing to my daughter every night before bed. The first verse, anyway; the later ones tend to devolve into “something, and something, and something else happens” because I can never remember the lyrics. They definitely dropped a verse here — I think the second of three.
