In this Valentine's Day special featuring Jim Henson's Muppets and special guest star Mia Farrow, Muppet character Wally has writer's block -- he can't think of material for the show that conveys the true meaning of love, and asks the other Muppets and Farrow for assistance. Included are the following musical highlights: the Muppets perform the opening number, "Love Is a Simple Thing"; Farrow and Thog, a huge Muppet monster, perform a duet rendition of "Real Live Girl"; Farrow sings a ballad to Rufus the Dog; and the entire cast sings "We Got Love." In other highlights, Kermit reports from the planet Koozebane on the love rituals of space aliens, and Crazy Donald repeatedly blows up the set with little provocation. Includes commercials for Bic Banana Ink crayons with Charles Nelson Reilly, NestlŽ's products, Keebler C.C. Biggs cookies, and Tang drink mix.
