Now that we're grown up and don't watch Jim Henson's The Muppet Show anymore, the only thing better than Gonzo the Great is finding out that Gonzo is really a woman and has perfected the art of tassel twirling. Last week, The Monday Night Tease! Muppet (of Burlesque) Show returned featuring strip-tease performances by Miss Piggy, Beaker, Fozzie Bear, Sam the Eagle, Swedish Chef, Rizzo and more. We did a side-by-side comparison and came up with the seven best examples of why the Muppets are still hot.
