Although one of the songs that played over the end credits had a long
rambling introduction by Fozzie Bear in which he blamed Buckaroo Banzai
for convincing him that divorce had no consequences. As far as I can
tell, that makes no sense, but in the dream it was funny.
Also, did you know that Queen Elizabeth liked to ride horses?

I always hate it when I dream about a popular TV character and in the
dream they're funnier than they actually are. Although, that dream I
once had where Jeff Foxworthy came to visit me might be the exception
which proves the rule. He did die in that dream, though, so even though
he still wasn't funny in that dream at least I got to see his corpse.
It was icky though because he passed out on my bed and died and so in
the dream I didn't want to go to sleep because my imaginary bed was
now contaminated by Imaginary Dead Jeff Foxworthy Germs.
The one instance I can recall where I, too, dreamt about a Muppet
was the one in which Telly drove around in a little car explaining,
"I am He Who Does Not Keep His Tires Properly Inflated!" (There was
a lot more of that, I eventually put it all in a short story you
may have once missed.) Now, that wasn't all that funny, but when
you consider how unentertaining "Sesame Street" currently is -- given
that they've eliminated all the good stuff in favor of excruciatingly
long segments of people talking, plus long-format ritualistic and
formulaic segments like "Ernie's Show & Tell" and "Elmo's World",
you can understand why seeing Telly being proud to drive around with
underpressurized tires would be funnier than, say, Elmo watching
Mr. Noodle trying to put his shoes on for twenty minutes.
I miss the days when "Sesame Street"
had a claymation title sequence.
