- Thank you very much.

- Thank you.

Thank you.

- They like it!

- They love it!

They're still applauding. Kermy,

you have to go out and take a bow.

- Yeah.

- Take a bow.


Thank you.

Thank you. Thank you.

Thank you, uh... I really don't know

what to say except, uh...

Well, we're really glad

you liked Manhattan Melodies...

because we all worked so hard to make it

the best Senior Variety Show ever.

Hey, Kermit, next time

we'll see you on Broadway!

Yeah. Yeah, sure.

That's a great idea. Why don't we

take Manhattan Melodies to New York?


Broadway'd be dying to get

a great musical like this.


We'd just like to thank everybody

for having so much faith in us.

It's not often that a frog

and a bear and a pig...

and a chicken and a whatever

even get accepted into college.

We're all so proud to be

graduating now, some with honors...

Woman! Woman!

Some with the help of

daily psychological counseling.

Anyway, anyway,

thank you again.

Thank you for everything, guys.

Thank you. Yeah. Thank you.

- Broadway?

- Yeah!

But this show's not

good enough for Broadway.

The script needs work. I think

there's something missing.

Remember you said we could not

get married until we had enough money?


Well, we'd have enough

if we had a hit on Broadway.

- That's right.

- Yes, yes.

Broadway of what city?

Aw, come on. Come on.

Even if the show was good enough,

we're just graduating.

What about our future plans?

- Well, this could be our future.

- Yeah! Yeah!

If we don't do it, we just

say good-bye to each other.

- Oh.

- Broadway! Broadway, Broadway!

What are we waiting for?

Let's go to Broadway!

- Yeah! Yeah!

- Broadway!

- New York!

- Look at everything there!

- We made it, guys.

- We're really here.

What a great-looking place.

It's filled with New Yorkers.

Look at 'em all.

Look how gorgeous everything is.

We'd better dump our stuff

and find a place to stay.

- Yeah.

- Yeah.

- Okay, Scooter, break out the quarters.

- Yes, sir.

You all right down there?

How about up there?

- What do you think, guys?

- What?

- I say, how do you like it?

- Oh, it's great.

Much better than that cement

mixer I used to live in.

I'll trade with anyone

that has a Jacuzzi.

Come on.

It's just for one day.

- We'll all be on Broadway tomorrow.

- Yeah.

- We'd like to see Mr. Price.

- Do you have an appointment?

No, but we saw his name in the paper.

We've got this show...

called Manhattan Melodies he's gonna

want to produce on Broadway.

It's about a couple of kids that

come to New York City to get married.

It has a wonderful opening

number. It goes like this.

Hold it. Hold it.

What's going on out there?

Just a frog

with a musical, Mr. Price.

Musical? Send him in.

Net. I'm talking net.

You've gotta be kidding with gross.

- Nice upholstery.

- Hold it a minute. I'll get back to you.

Mr. Price, I'm Kermit,

and these are my friends.

We've got a show called
