Overview

It's time to play the music, it's time to dress up bright!  Because it's time for the most most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, muppetational show of them all! It's the Muppet Show!

The Muppet Show was an award winning British family TV series that combined puppetry, vaudeville, and comedy sketches. Created by famed puppeteer Jim Henson, the Muppet Show was a direct attempt to prevent himself from being typecast as being a purely children's entertainer thanks to his immense contributions to the popular children's show Sesame Street. Henson wished to create a TV show that could be enjoyed by children and adults alike.

The Muppet Show had a vaudeville format with the regular Muppet cast characters having singing or sketch comedies both by themselves and usually accompanied with a human celebrity guest starring alongside them. This included a wide range of celebrities ranging from noted singers such as Sir Elton John, Diana Ross, and John Denver to accomplished actors such as Rita Moreno, Jim Nabors, and even Mark Hamil who famously simultaneously portrayed himself and his character of Luke Skywalker on the show.

The TV series however was perhaps best known for its most iconic character, Kermit the Frog who was the long running and long suffering stage manager/straight man of The Muppet Show.  The series would inspire the long running franchise of feature films, spin-off TV series, and the Muppets making numeorus cameo appearances in commericals and other TV shows over the ensuing decades.
