Sample of script:

Stone, Sunny and Wolf are at M Piggy’s corn garden setting up for TV broadcast

Stone: Now if you set up my desk just across from the garden gate.

Sunny: Well, I was thinking that maybe I should be in front of the gate, I mean with Miss Piggy being a lady and all, just makes sense that I be the one to first interview her here at her corn garden.

Wolf: Both of you make good points but perhaps I should be directly in front of the gate, me being from the CNN Situation Room and all.

Sunny: With great respect Wolf, I don’t see why being in the Situation Room should make any difference. I mean, this story is all about Miss Piggy’s corn garden, and a corn garden is all about farming, and farming is all about agriculture, and I am the Agriculture reporter at CNN. . . So, I should be directly in front of the front gate. . . . So that’s settled . . .

Stone: Well, Sunny, I can see where you are coming from, and there is a lot of what you say that makes sense, . .but . . just before we jump to hasty conclusions. . . . Let’s examine the facts . . .When I look at Miss Piggy’s corn garden I do see farming, and I do see agriculture, but even more, I see . . nature . .
And after all, this is the CNN, the Country. . Nature . . . Network. . . . And I . . after all, am the . . Nature . . correspondent here at CNN, the Country . . Nature . . Network. . . . So I am sure you will all agree that . .I . . should be sitting directly in front of the gate. . . . Now if you will all help me move my desk in front of the gate I will proceed to . . .

Wolf, angry: Now just hold on one cotton pickin’ minute nature boy! . . . I will be the one sitting at the gate . .

Sunny: Dream on Wolf Blister . . I am the lady and Miss Piggy is a lady and so . .

M Piggy and Kermit come on stage as the others are yelling back and forth

Stone: The both of you are just being stubborn!

Wolf: I am head of the Situation Room!

Sunny: Don’t you two have it figured out? . .

Kermit: Hey what’s all the bellerin’ about?

M Piggy: We could hear you guys clean down in the valley, I thought it was like something crazy goin’ on up here.

Kermit: Like it was a big rock concert with like a gazillion fans screamin’ at the top of their lungs. . . Or maybe even an ice hockey game or somethin’.

Wolf: Well, we are gonna do a special broadcast on CNN about Miss Piggy’s corn garden. . . And these two amateurs don’t seem to understand that the chief correspondent . . that would be me . . . needs to be directly in front of the gate.

Stone: Well that’s just nonsense, that’s all it is . . .

Sunny: Exactly Stone, it should be me, Sunny Flowers, sitting in the position of importance!

Stone: I don’t think so Sunny, I, Stone Pastures am the natural choice and I . .

Sunny, Wolf and Stone shouting at each other, Kermit and M Piggy try to talk over them
Clarice Crow comes on stage holding ears

Clarice: What in tarnation is going on here? . . How do you expect a body to enjoy an afternoon nap with all this screaming going on around? . . I will have you guys know that I was in the middle of the most awesome dream . . I dreamed I was laying on a beach in Bermuda and 18 robins were hand feeding me cracked corn pellets. . .. And you guys had to go and wake me up!

Wolf: Well, I am sorry to disturb your rest Clarice but these two want to . . .

Wolf, Sunny and Stone start yelling insults at each other again, Clarice tries to calm them

Clarice: People! . . . Just a minute here! . . . I said . . (screams) . . people!!!! . . . You people are not only interrupting my dream . . you are giving me a massive migraine . . . Now not one more word out of any of you or I shall go to the chairman of the board at CNN and inform him that I happened to see, while flying over the CNN studios last week, the three of you talking to other networks.

Wolf, Stone and Sunny react in shock

Wolf: We did no such thing!

Clarice: I have pictures and sound track . . . Now do I have silence?

Sunny: OK, as you say Clarice . .

Stone: I said my piece, I’m OK . .

Wolf looks down, says nothing

Clarice: Wolf?

Wolf: All right, all right, I’ll go along.

M Piggy: What I can’t figure out is you three, all working together and everything, arguing over a little thing like where you sit.

Kermit: I agree Miss Piggy, after all, they all work at the CNN studio, they are like a team. And to make a good program it takes all of you working together in harmony.

M Piggy: So right Kermie. Kinda like my corn garden here. To have a good corn crop I need lots of things working together, or there’s gonna be no corn at harvest time.

Wolf: I don’t follow you Miss Piggy, what do you mean lots of things working together?
