THE MUPPET SHOW - "With Alice Cooper" (1978)

 Well, it looks like we're gonna make it, so let's finish this Countdown To Halloween off in style with a Saturday Night Special going back to 1978 and "The Muppet Show" again, but this time with special guest star, rock & roll horrormeister Alice Cooper!

Of course Alice makes his first appearance on the show coming out of a coffin!
"Welcome to my nightmare, I think you're gonna like it!"

“Alas, poor Yorick!"
Alice is looking good in this vampire outfit, and does a routine with this ghost!

Alice channeling his inner Lon Chaney in "Phantom Of The Opera."

This shot looks like it came straight out of a Salvador Dali painting, and speaking of Dali, if you don't know about Alice Cooper and Salvador Dali's encounter in 1973, and Dali's creation called "Cylindric Chromo-Hologram Portrait of Alice Cooper’s Brain," then by all means, you can read Alice's accout of the whole story, by going right HERE!
One of the bits they do on this show is Alice tries to get Kermit to sign a contract, virtually selling his soul to the devil! The funniest thing is that to my knowledge, these days Alice is a devout Christian!

But you know what, he's got a good sense of humor!!

I don't know what the heck these singing things are!

The name his parents gave him was Vincent Damon Furnier, but he had it changed legally to Alice Cooper in 1975! Another krazy thing about Alice is that he is a scratch golfer. If you don't know what that means, it means he's REALLY good!!

There might have only been five episodes of "The Snoop Sisters" made, but just like "The Muppet Show," Vincent Price and Alice Cooper were both in one. Also in 1975, there was a TV Special called "Alice Cooper: The Nightmare," and Vincent Price was on it as The Spirit Of The Nightmare.

This touching moment proves there really is somebody out there somewhere for each and every one of us!

They did have enough time for a short segment of "Pigs in Space."

Little did they know............................

........................That some 48 years after they wrote the words "School's Out Forever"..................

...................In the year 2020, it would all come true!!!

If you just can't get enough of Alice in Monsterland, there's always "Monster Dog" to watch.

And if that's still not enough, another fun thrill ride is "Diary Of A Mad Housewife!"

I know almost nothing about him personally, but evidently he's the son of a minister, so if he's become a born-again Christian it isn't so surprising.
That makes the line in "No More Mr. Nice Guy" about getting punched in the face by a reverend kind of an inside joke.
