"the gambler, he broke even"

Kenny Rogers' 'Gambler' is my gambling theme - containing, as it does, several layers of truth.

But I don't think I'll ever hear it the same way again after seeing this harrowing, soul-wounding interpretation from the Muppet Show. Wasn't this supposed to be for kids? Who thought a tap-dancing ghoul would be appropriate? And isn't that public intellectual Sir Robert Winston on the far right?
