And now, here's video of a Muppet dying

I know that The Muppet Show was for adults as much as kids, but this clip from the show is still rather odd. Guest Kenny Rogers sings "The Gambler" (which has lines about drinking whiskey and smoking cigarettes) and then one of the Muppets dies. It's all a bit surreal.

That was a bit strange, but does anyone else think the muppet by the gambler looks like Gene Shalit? lol And I think Kenny has botoxed too much, he was such a gorgeous man once!

Smoking, drinking, dying, gambling, and ghosts all great from a time when writers didn't write scared.

Granted wasn't particularly funny but at least it was done.

I agree. I miss when writers didn't have to worry about being so PC.

That was a tad bit strange. I found the odd shape of the muppet's body very strange too. Super long legs and arms but little torso.
