Synopses of this volume of BEST OF THE MUPPET SHOW are:

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
