    * * * * Culver City, CA (September 29, 2003) - The most sensational, inspirational,
    celebrational, Muppetational show on TV is back! *Starring comedy icons Steve Martin, Carol
    Burnett and Gilda Radner, this wildly wacky volume of the BEST OF THE MUPPET

    Synopses of this volume of BEST OF THE MUPPET SHOW are:
    STEVE MARTIN: *The wild-and-crazy comic creates some really twisted balloon animals,
    becomes a banjo-pickin' "Rambling Guy," and joins the Muppet Jug Band for a foot-stomping
    bluegrass finale.
    CAROL BURNETT: *The queen of comedy does some light cleaning, sings a romantic polka,
    demonstrates why she "Was Made For Dancing," and performs her "Lonely Asparagus" sketch.
    GILDA RADNER: *The "Saturday Night Star" duets with a giant carrot, gets caught in
    a sticky situation at Muppet Labs, and becomes very attached to the cast while she taps her
    troubles away.

    Each volume of the BEST OF THE MUPPET SHOW contains three full-length
    hilarious, uncut episodes that are jam-packed with all the outrageous skits, music hits, great
    guest stars, and the Muppet moments everyone loves ... plus some extra laugh-out-loud tunes
    and sketches never before broadcast in North America. *Also included are special episode
    introductions by Brian Henson.

    This hugely popular series features Kermit the FrogTM, Miss PiggyTM, Fozzie BearTM,
    Rowlf the DogTM, ScooterTM, The Great GonzoTM, and a myriad of other Muppets as they work
    together to put on a variety show. *Emceed by Kermit, the show includes comedy sketches,
    musical numbers, death-defying feats, and satirical vaudeville routines. *

    For nearly five decades Jim Henson's Muppets have entertained audiences worldwide with the
    mission of "making the world a better place by inspiring people to celebrate life." *From
    comedy to creativity, innovation to irreverence, performance to puppetry, the Muppets truly
