Really!?! – The Muppets Crash SNL

Last night was a big night for Jason Segel, as the writer and star of The Muppets appeared on NBC for his first ever gig as host of Saturday Night Live. As Jason would explain in his monologue, two of his dreams came true this year: hosting SNL and making a movie with the Muppets. Well, one of those dreams almost got derailed completely as Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Rowlf the Dog, Scooter, Camilla, Statler, and Waldorf appeared to, seemingly innocently, help Jason with his opening song. But… when the Muppets found out that they weren’t the ones hosting SNL, well… just see for yourself in the amazing video below!

Luckily, this wasn’t the only time the Muppets appeared during last night’s episode. Kermit stopped by “Weekend Update” with Seth Myers for a little bit of fun in a segment they like to call “Really!?! With Seth and Kermit” wherein Seth and Kermit yell at Congress for declaring cafeteria pizza a vegetable.

Yes. That Really!?! happened. What an incredibly awesome appearance!! The Muppets were in prime form, as they have been almost consistently recently, and one can only speculate how long it will be before they get to host themselves. Brilliant.

Now… if you’ll excuse me, I have to go figure out how they had Piggy and Fozzie talking at the same time during the monologue on a live show.

  1. Jason: “Maybe the reason they chose me was because they thought I was a more versatile actor for a VARIETY SHOW.”

    Oh riiiiight, because The Muppet Show was so obviously reality television. Seriously.

  2. Yep I was thinking the same thing – how are Fozzie and Piggy on stage at the same time in a live performance? Maybe Eric throws his voice really well?

    Oh well, it was such a fun appearance from them, I loved that the Muppeteers got to be in the goodnights as well. Awesome.
