Trivia

  • In 1992, Newhart hosted Holiday Greetings from The Ed Sullivan Show, a Christmas special that featured guest appearances by Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and other Muppets. Newhart tells Miss Piggy that he admires her karate chops, and Piggy offers a demonstration, using Kermit as a target. Kermit ducks for the final exercise, however, and Piggy hits Newhart instead.
