In a natural progression, the Muppet theme song leads to…a pushy frog in your room?!

Hi, I do love your comic strip. But technically today’s and yesterday’s strip are wrong. The muppet show theme actually had words. The song you are referring to in your strips is “Mana manah” which was a sketch on the Muppet show with a little monster and 2 backup ones doing the “do dos”, but it was not the theme song. I always loved the Muppet Show. Thanks for the great childhood memories.
Here are the lyrics:

It’s time to play the music
It’s time to light the lights
It’s time to meet the Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight.

It’s time to put on makeup
It’s time to dress up right
It’s time to raise the curtain on the Muppet Show tonight.

And now let’s get things started
Why don’t you get things started
It’s time to get things started
On the most sensational inspirational celebrational Muppetational
This is what we call the Muppet Show!

Thanks for pointing that out! I was just going with my old man’s memory on the subject…maybe I should’ve actually researched the topic. That being said, I’m writing from my childhood experiences as I can remember them and the ‘Mana manah’ bit, in my head at least, is associated with the Muppet Show so please indulge me if I take a few liberties…;)

Thanks for investing enough in my comics to take the time to comment! Tell you what…send me your name and a mailing address and I’ll send you something cool in the mail.

I somehow also associate the “Manamanah” with the Muppet Show, so no probs on using it in your comic. I do like following your comic (just found it last year, so kinda a newbie to it, but do like it a lot). I am enjoying reminiscing with Mike’s jump back to childhood.

You mean P.J.’s jump back into childhood…;) I’m gonna drop something cool in the mail tomorrow. Keep an eye out for it in the mail by the end of the week!

And thanks again for reading!
