Yes, but there were 14 5-bell runs and 2 6-bell runs IN ADDITION to the 25 4-bell runs in Muppet Show, totalling 41 (this includes runs that include the treble)
I'd come to the same conclusion about the -36 start and had been playing around with it this morning.
The unrung Surprise method -36-4-22.214.171.124-234.5-56.34.1 scores 48 4-bell runs in the same course (4 of each in each direction, front & back), but no runs of 5 or more.
