In this day and age of A.I. ( Artificial Intelligence ),
When I think about the Dudley Moore episode of The Muppet Show, it's almost like they predicted the future. 😅
Dudley Moore through out the episode shows off the latest in music technology known as M.A.M.M.A. ( Music and Mood Management Apparatus ). Which looks like an A.I. robot in the parody form of Star Wars' R2D2 ( Ironically, Star Wars did guest star on The Muppet Show ).
Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem
https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Dr._Teeth_and_the_Electric_Mayhem are told to "take five" ( which they mistaken as playing the Dave Brubeck jazz hit song ). They were told to leave as they are replaced with M.A.M.M.A.
Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem go up to M.A.M.M.A. to mock it.
Dr. Teeth : Would you believe this? It's a musical garbage can.
Floyd : Playin' musical garbage. ( laughs )
Dr. Teeth : It ain't got that swing when it's played by a thing.
Floyd : Still you will note, that it is being played, and nobody bein' paid.
Dr. Teeth : True, true.
Floyd : Jive.
Even Animal is angry. He tried to attack M.A.M.M.A. and even Dudley Moore through out the episode.
It's one of my favorite episodes. :)
What's also ironic is how we live at a time where "the last and final" Beatles track used A.I., and this episode starts with a funny and weird tribute to The Beatles featuring alien like bug Muppets. ;)
