  • The album also ends with Kermit locking up the theater after everyone is assumingly out, and he and Miss Piggy leave for dinner. After about 30 seconds, it is revealed that Fozzie Bear was forgotten about and is left locked in the theater with the lights out. He then starts plaintively repeating "Help". On the original vinyl recording, the side ended in a locked groove loop, so his 'Help' would repeat indefinitely.
