Summary

Guest Brooke Shields appears with the Muppets in a musical version of Lewis Carroll's Alice's adventures in Wonderland, featuring Floyd Pepper as the Caterpillar, Miss Piggy as the Queen of Hearts, Gonzo as the Mad Hatter, Statler and Waldorf as Tweedledum and Tweedeldee, and a confused Fozzie Bear as the Tin Woodsman. Kermit must contend with backstage chaos, and the cast scrambles to go on with the show after Dr. Bunsen Honeydew shrinks Shields. Includes a raucous version of Carroll's poem Jabberwocky.
