I've see The Jimmy Dean Show mentioned as an early place where Jim Henson
worked. I hadn't seen Our Place mentioned and had forgotten about the show.
However, Jack Burns was The Muppet Show's first head writer and shares writing
credits with Jerry Juhl on The Muppet Movie. He was part of Burns and
Schreiber, a comedy duo I remember loving as a kid. Our Place was their show

mercilessly sends up Star Trek.

This song has a sort of 70s funk/Daft Punk vibe. Everything is in English, so

The wolf in a bed covered in red velvet, a cat sitting atop of an enormous
