Muppet Match-Up #4!

These match-ups are getting going to the birds! 

I give you round 4 of:

First, let's recap the rules:

1. The episodes are selected at random. 

2. The only caveat to rule 1 is that a season of The Muppet Show may be picked, but again the episode itself must be random. Once a season has been picked - it's out of play. 

3. Once an episode has been selected, it's out of play and can't be selected again. (yes I know these means only 16 episodes (so far) of The Muppets vs 120 episodes of The Muppet Show.)

Round 4 features a country novelty songwriter crooning while the Muppets turn into chickens vs a pig doing aerial acrobatics. You can't make this stuff up folks!

The only real similarities to be found are that both episodes features Muppet transformations:

In the Roger Miller episode, the Muppets (save for Gonzo) turn into chickens when a plague of Cluckitis spreads through the theater. While in Got Silk? Gonzo, Rizzo, and Pepe are transformed from lowly writers into sharp dressed men thanks to an infusion of brain washing product placement by Pinkberry.

You can watch the Roger Miller episode here
(We wish Disney would release it on DVD!)

And Got Silk? below:

My take: The Roger Miller episode is The Muppets are their most comically absurd, while Got Silk? features some actual character growth from Miss Piggy while searching for a best friend. This one is like, totally, going to go the muppets.

But, now it's your turn. Vote for which episode you think should come out on top. The poll  will be open for one week and voting is done on the top right hand side of the page.
