Vote On The Best Of The Muppets!

Jarrod Fairclough – Ask 100 people their favorite episode of The Muppet Show, and you’ll likely hear a lot of the same answers – Mark Hamill, Steve Martin, John Cleese etc.  Then some people get real obscure, like Arlo Guthrie or Mummenschanz.  You’ll never hear Rich Little’s name though, because that episode blows chunks. Well, those fine…
