Craig Ferguson has been taking liberties with the cold open of his show for months, using guest stars and yodeling monkeys and too many stunts to keep track of (And everyone knows CF is the smartest late night host, right? He is.) Anyway, the puppets came out of retirement last night for another hilariously WTF cold open:

Your move, Fallon. (Via heartonastick, who has been obsessed with these for months.)

    are there any ratings out yet on Jimmy Fallon vs CFerguson? And if there are, are there separate ratings that take out retarded females that want to date Jimmy Fallon? I can’t fathom Ferguson not trouncing Fallon

  2. Now if only he could lip-sync an American accent for the rest of the show.

    /wishes Conan did cold openings

  4. Eat your heart out, Fallon. You just got trounced by lip-syncing puppets.

    Fallon had a Japanese fellow come out and do the monologue a few weeks ago. It was Fallon’s best yet.

    These were retired? I could havve sworn I saw him open with one a week or two ago.

  9. This had to be one of the best opening segments I have ever seen Craig do. You would have to be a complete jerk not to get a kick out of this one people…Lighten up

    what was the name of the song by the puppets?

  12. YAY!!!! You finally mentioned Craig Ferguson, and you called him the smartest! I can’t believe this site didn’t mention the hilariously embarrassing Brittany Murphy interview on his show from a month ago, but this makes up for it.

  13. Craig Ferguson is the smartest man in late night…can’t say the same for Letterman.

    He would never dream of retiring us! Clearly he loves me, Kronus, Corky and the rest of the puppets. To some extent, he’s addicted to us…can’t do the show without us. Like an addict, from time to time he tries to break free from us. When he does, he whines like a bitch about how he misses us.

    Anyways, after breaking my heart & the physical abuse, I had to cut him off. Plus I got tired of hearing him yell about that ginger-haired bitch, Conan. He did this opening bit for me. Yes, me! Yeah, sure he’s had his wives, but once you go shark you can never go back to humans and sincerely enjoy yourself.

    So, you see, Craig & I are back together now and he’s promising to leave his wife but this time he REALLY means it. At least that’s what he says…if he screws me over again, I’ll have to eat some Cabbage, that tasty delicious treat with four legs–YUM!

    Uh, I better go. I’m starting to have some trouble breathing and the carpel tunnel is starting to act up in my right fin. Damn this computer keyboards with their small keys!

  14. Now THAT is a cold open. I want to jump into his arms and run into a happy, puppet filled sunset with him and his brogue.
