Monstrous Muppets Mayhem: Vincent Price (Season 1, Episode 19)
With the announcement of a Muppet Haunted Mansion special coming in time for Halloween, I’ve decided to do something fun for the spooky season by looking at other Muppet content that this time of year. That’ll include two episodes of the classic Muppet Show, a comic, and an episode of the Muppet Babies reboot, and of course Muppets Haunted Mansion.
We come to our first episode of the event as we look at the Vincent Price episode of The Muppet Show. This episode is just iconic as it gave us this classic image.
Vincent Price fits in perfectly with The Muppets and there are so many great moments such as a sketch with Gonzo and Fozzie inheriting a haunted castle and it has a nice use of Vincent Price and Uncle Deadly.
This episode has the right amount of silly and spooky. It is in other words…
It’s a fun episode and it is such a blast watching the Muppets play off of Vincent Price. Something else I enjoyed was the use of Muppet ghosts
Everything about this episode works for the most part and it just leaves a big smile on my face. This episode is such a fun way to kick off the season. There is just something quite sweet about this episode and watching Vincent Price interacting with the Muppet monsters as well.
Watching him sing You’ve Got a Friend with the monsters is sweet in a way. And as I’ve said throughout, it is so great to watch and see how much fun Price had.
My Final Thoughts
As I said, this episode is a lot of fun, and what a great to kick off the Haloween season. I’m sure other fans have seen this one but I loved every moment of it. Join me next time as we look at an episode of the show that might be even better for this time of year.

This is definitely one of my favorites from The Muppet Show. Vincent was one of the guests that i enjoyed the most.
I think for many in our age bracket, this was our first introduction to Vincent Price. And you can tell he’s having a blast.
One thing that always bugged me about this episode is why they had to change Uncle Deadly’s “Guy Lombardo” punchline. It’s so much funnier.
