  1. Autostraddle how do you know my life.

    I was playing a Muppet Show drinking game last night, it was the most amazing/really terrible idea ever.

    However, a note about choosing Miss Piggy as the character you have to drink for? THAT BITCH IS EVERYWHERE.

  2. When I was small, I had a double-feature Muppets VHS that included the Vincent Price and Alice Cooper episodes. I loved that VHS SO MUCH, you guys, you don’t even know. So it makes me really happy that “School’s Out” is on this list.

  3. I can’t believe you didn’t include anything from the Raquel Welch episode, which was – EPIC. I would give anything to trade places with the giant spider she beats up in the opening number.
