''Muppets Tonight'' was a TV series featuring Franchise/TheMuppets that originally ran from 1996 to 1998, initially as part of ABC's TGIF block. (A ChannelHop to Creator/TheDisneyChannel followed.) An update of the premise of ''Series/TheMuppetShow'', it featured the Muppets producing a television variety show with the help (or otherwise) of the episode's guest star. Kermit the Frog was replaced as host by Clifford, a catfish-esque "humanoid" first seen on ''Series/TheJimHensonHour'', but retained his role as producer. ''[[Series/LostInSpace Pigs In Space]]'', a recurring sketch from ''The Muppet Show'', returned as ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Dish Nine]]''.

* StatlerAndWaldorf: It wouldn't be the Muppets without them. No matter where they go, they end up watching the show, this time from a nursing home. Later episodes they'd be watching it in other various places such as while on a ski-lift.

** Johnny Fiama, Sal Minella and Dr. Phil van Neuter became core characters in post-Muppets Tonight Muppet productions for a few years, but fell victim to this trope after the mid-2000s. Though Johnny and Sal made their final appearance in the "Muppets sing BohemianRhapsody" Viral Video in 2009.

Quite a few characters from the show have also turned up from time to time in the background of various productions.

** Giganticus, the "World's Largest Performing Artist" was slated for an appearance but according to Scooter was beaten up by Super-Giganticus in Tokyo. Kermit filled in, wearing Giganticus' suit and singing "Once In a Lifetime", in an homage to [[Music/TalkingHeads Byrne's giant jacket top]] from ''Film/StopMakingSense''.

Added DiffLines:

* EasilyForgiven: The thread of a [[Film/{{Speed}} bomb that would go off if the ratings go under 50]] turned out [[spoiler:to be a false threat made up by Sandra Bullock in an attempt to keep the ratings up, due to her being worried that they would blame her if the shows ratings were bad. The Muppets don't show any resentment for her, let her do whatever she wants (which includes a terrible act), and Clifford assures her she can come back to the show whenever she wants.]]

* EarpieceConversation: In the Creator/CindyCrawford episode, mumbling security guard Bobo the Bear develops a crush on her. They hook him up an earpiece so that Rizzo the Rat can feed him the lines, but it comes to a bad end after Rizzo's nephews (coming home from somewhere with balloons) walk in, leading Bobo to hear and repeat: [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar "That's a nice set of balloons you've got. Maybe you'll let me play with them later."]]



* PlayingCyrano: In the Creator/CindyCrawford episode, mumbling security guard Bobo the Bear develops a crush on her.
