232 million delighted viewers in over
100 countries world-wide.
the Muppet Show officially introduced
the world to the first-ever green
felt MC -- Kermit the Frog -- and
his motley crew, a very weird multi-coloured
menagerie of characters including
the infamous Miss Piggy, the Great
Gonzo, Rizzo the Rat, Fozzie Bear,
Animal, Statler and Waldorf, Sweetums,
Rowlf The Dog, Robin The Frog, and
Dr. Bunsen Honeydew.
A variety series
that was a runaway success, The Muppet
Show is filled to the brim with comedy
sketches, musical numbers, and satirical
vaudeville routines and more-than-you-can-name
international guest stars.
Henson, son of the late Jim Henson,
and President and CEO of The Jim Henson
Company, will make a rare on-camera
appearance as host of specially-produced
interstitials which will introduce
"The Muppet Show", the classic
entertainment series for all ages.
The interstitials will provide behind-the-scenes
information and anecdotes of the Emmy
Award-winning series which features
guest appearances by some of the biggest
stars of film and television.
