Cliff's Nightmare is the fourteenth episode of The Cosby Show's sixth season which was first broadcast on January 11, 1990.


Cliff's late-night eating habits finally bite back, with a vengeance! His nightmare if filled with such Muppet characters as overstuffed talking sandwiches, back-talking refrigerator denizens and a bloodthirsty mob of creatures in the operating theater of Cliff's hospital. It seems that Cliff is scheduled to perform a delicate operation for their viewing pleasure, but he somehow winds up on the table as the patient, before waking up safe and sound in his own bed.
