📺 What I’m watching:

 I suffer from a Muppets obsession. I’m not proud of this, it just is. I hope we are in one of those safe spaces here.

This week The Muppets came up on a call so I could recall and share my favorite Muppet sketch of all time.  It’s very obscure, but lucky for me, and now you, it’s available on the Youtube. (Probably half the 763,481 views are by me.)

This sketch is from a 1980 episode with guest Linda Ronstadt. The 9-year-old Robert Skrob had a massive crush on Linda Ronstadt.

So it was in a “Blue Bayou” induced haze when I first saw, “The Cat Came Back.”  Even at 9-years old I instantly recognized the moral lesson: what you oppose returns.

I just discovered a website called Muppet Wiki that tells me the song was a popular folk tune written as a minstrel number by Harry S. Miller in 1883.

Enjoy “The Cat Came Back” while I spend my Labor Day weekend endlessly scrolling through the rest of the Muppet Wiki.
