The Muppet Show

It's time to play
the music...

It's time to light
the lights...

Hailed as the most outstanding international broadcasting success story of all time, The Muppet Show is one of the most honoured television shows in the world. During its original run, the series was seen by more than 232 million delighted viewers in over 100 countries world-wide.

More importantly, 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.

Brian 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.
