"In the mid-1970s, the Count became friendlier, did not have hypnotic powers, and interacted more with the characters (both live actors and Muppets). His laugh also changed from maniacal laughter to a more triumphant, stereotypical Dracula-style laugh."

The three little pigs is a parable about people with a common enemy not working together and sabotaging themselves by focusing on petty infighting!

The people who convinced the three pigs to use straw, wood and bricks separately made it easier for the wolf to destroy them!

Lead guitarist Jim Keller, interviewed by People in 1982, said "Jenny is a regular girl, not a hooker. Friends of mine wrote her name and number on a men's room wall at a bar. I called her on a dare, and we dated for a while. I haven't talked with her since the song became a hit, but I hear she thinks I'm a real jerk for writing it."

It's interesting how a facile seeming theme cuts across the history of recorded music and exposes so much more than, as Klein explained, merely songs with numbers in the title. Love, aging, death and eschatology, sex and romance, guns (lots of guns, strangely), absurdism, childhood, female anatomy alongside proto-feminist musings, telephone numerology, etc. Nicely done.

The better version of 10,000 Words in a Cardboard Box .
It was a demo until it came out on one of the first bamCaruso-comps in the 80ies.
