From Muppet Wiki

Great Moments in Elvis History was a recurring sketch on Muppets Tonight which spoofed the legend of rock star Elvis Presley. Its premise was to feature momentous occasions from world history, such as the signing of the Declaration of Independence, reenacted by three Muppet Elvises. Strangely, next week's sketch would always be advertised at the end of each "Elvis" sketch- but these skits never appeared. "Elvis of Arabia", which was advertised at the end of "The Declaration of Independence" skit, and "Tarzan of Graceland", which was advertised at the end of the "Elvis The King..." sketch, were never shown in full.


Picture Theme Episode Description
The Declaration of Independence Episode 101: Michelle Pfeiffer George Washington, Mr. Hancock, and Thomas Jefferson- all portrayed by Muppet Elvises- argue about who is the King, on the completion of the Declaration of Independence. At the end of the sketch, Benjamin Franklin walks in and announces that he has discovered electricity. The three Elvises are delighted, as they can now play electric guitars- they close the episode with a parody of "Blue Suede Shoes".

Next Week: Elvis of Arabia
Elvis the King and his Knights of the Round Table Episode 106: Tony Bennett Lady Guenevere is captured by a dragon, but rescued by the Court Wizard, Merlin. The episode ends with the three Elvises singing a parody of "Jailhouse Rock" with Galahad and Dance-a-Lot.

Next Week: Tarzan of Graceland
Elvis Caesar Episode 206: Paula Abdul Next Week: Sir Elvis Newton
