Someone hasn't been reading his Catfish Stew religiously:

Those are my three favorite muppets, BTW. I'm not sure what it says about me that my three favorite muppets are mostly unintelligible.

Oh snap, my bad Ken. LOL. You get props for that. Yeah, I think animal and the Swedish Chef were my favorites on that show. I know it's out on DVD now but I haven't seen any of them. Seems like something that would be worth buying...

Saw this clip within the last 6 months or so. Good stuff. I think I started my search looking for some old time bluegrass and wound up watching The Muppets for about 30 minutes. Ah, the youtube. : )

2 I knew that seemed familiar. Animal's knows about as many of the lyrics to that song as I do.

3 They're up to season 3 on DVD now. I have the first two and am enjoying them. The Muppet Show and early SNL season DVDs are regular players at my house.
