- Note that the word "sugar" is right there in the name, as is "fairy". That might actually count as a Lampshade Hanging.[[/quoiteblock]]

- Your Mileage May Vary, but the 1981 episode of The Muppet Show with Linda Ronstadt was arguably a low point. No offense to any Ronstadt fans out there, but she wasn't really the best choice for a guest host. After so many high-spirited and even brassy celebrities who could at the very least hold their own alongside the Muppets - Peter Sellers, Dom DeLuise, Raquel Welch, even Rudolf Nureyev for goodness's sakes (and when a Russian can appear jollier than you!) - Ronstadt just seems so quiet and demure (and, with that idiotic little grin, like a Stepford Smiler) that she winds up dragging down the entire show. The Muppets try their best to compensate with their trademark subversive and even ghoulish humor, and Linda's first number, Roy Orbison's "Blue Bayou", is fine (although she performs it in nineteenth-century "granny" underwear for some odd reason), but the finale, with her singing "When I Grow Too Old To Dream", is just too sentimentalized and pathetic to make anyone feel good, made all the worse by resident Jerkass Rizzo the Rat actually shedding tears as he listens to the song. But perhaps the worst part is that (Muppets Tonight and the odd special notwithstanding)
