One of my best friends, Tenure, bought the first season of the Muppet Show on DVD recently, and last night we were at their place watching some of the special features on the last DVD. One of them went like this:
Statler and Waldorf were up in their balcony, and Statler was doing the intro for the next show (“next time on The Muppet Show, special guest star blah, blah….”). As he’s talking to the camera, Waldorf is slowly caving in his face until it’s completely imploded. Statler finishes his bit, looks over at his partner in crime, looks back at the camera, and pulls his own face in. I was DYING, it was the best laugh I’ve had in quite some time.
I miss Jim Henson.
