Yeah, I saw it a few times, but it was a long time ago. They changed a few songs because they were sitting in a restaurant, so raspberry beret became raspberry sorbet and then the other song was starfish and coffee. It was a good episode with a few jokes about his name and his clothes.

Homer: Purple Rain!!
Little Richard: Shut up!
Homer (to Marge): Oh my God, Michael Jackson just told me to shut up!

I loved this Prince appearance.

The part that absolutely killed me was when all of the muppets were wearing different types of Prince clothes. I think it was the Bear (not Fozzy) that had the assless pants and ratso tried to block his ass by standing in front of him with his arms spread out. I DIED!!!!!

BIG Muppet fan and PRINCE fan. It was fantastic to see the him on "Muppets Tonight".

Apparently, there is talk that the Walt Disney Co. might be releasing the Muppets Tonight on DVD like they did the 1st season of the Muppet Show.
If they do that then I hope they include all the xtras and behind the scenes goodies.

Keep your fingers cross,,,, biggrin

thanks for the Housequake link. I've never seen the show before. It's great to see Prince has a sense of humor about himself

He really is MEGA relaxed on the show. I love that. The show is worth it just to see him in overalls.....custom painted plaid!

LOL! That was the coolest thing I've ever seen! Thanks for posting the link. Thanks to Housequake.com for all that they do.

Who slept on the "Starfish and Coffee" footage? That would have been the PERFECTvideo for that song! Better late than never. shrug

I love this,it really shows what a great sense of humour he has and blows away the petulant,head up his ass reputation that some people seem to think he has. I have this episode on a bootled dvd and its great.
Time is a trick....
