Is this for real?! "Is there really a Wilkins Coffee?" asked an incredulous Virginia.

Yes, Virginia, it is for real. Wilkins Coffee is no more (I suspect threatening your potential customers is bad for business, if hilarious). I think this was the Muppets' first professional gig - it even predates Sesame Street.
