Jim Henson, Kermit the Frog and John Cleese Performing a Skit for the Muppet Show

As stern-looking as John Cleese might be, I don't think he has enough willpower to pretend to not enjoy guesting in The Muppet Show.

I mean, who wouldn’t? Kermit and company definitely know how to have a jolly good time after all!

Kermit introduces John’s final number, “The Impossible Dream”. Onstage, John tells Kermit that he doesn’t do old show tunes. Kermit apologizes, the curtain closes — and when they open again, John is dressed for a Wagnerian opera number, and Sweetums is singing “Ride of the Valkyries”. John objects, and Kermit asks for one more chance. When the curtain opens for a third time, John is dressed for a Mexican maraca solo. Kermit brings on a glee club of pigs, chickens and monsters to accompany John. Frustrated, John screams at Kermit… but the glee club finally ropes him into singing “The Impossible Dream”. — Skit Synopsis

To dream the impossible dream~
