Episodes 1


Candice Bergen

November 14, 1976

Candice Bergen is a longtime friend of the Muppets, her father being noted ventriloquist Edgar Bergen (who will guest next season). A year prior, she shared the stage cheering up Scred and King Ploobis on Saturday Night Live with her rendition of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" when their castmates abandon their bash for the Bees' Christmas party. Candice also made a visit to Sesame Street.

She would later lead the proceedings during Jim Henson's induction into the Television Hall of Fame (her speech ends up forming one of the introductions to the biography "Jim Henson: The Works").

Miss Piggy gets her big moment this episode, and interestingly even though she had been a shared character between Frank Oz and Richard Hunt, the more gifted singer of the two (Miss Piggy is even alternately played by both throughout this episode), it's FRANK who performs her first solo and does rather admirably in the first of many songs where he really lives up to the challenge of stretching the pig's (and his own) vocal cords!

Waldorf must have been telling the truth in his closing comment regarding liking the show. Aside from their interruption during Kermit's intro, they stay silent throughout the show.
