The original video pitch for the Muppet Show by Jim Henson (1 video)
As someone who grew up watching the Muppets, this is just great. This is Jim Henson’s original video he made to pitch the Muppet Show to CBS, and I have to say, it’s pretty hilarious.
I never really even thought about how a show like the Muppets might be pitched to a network, but I definitely didn’t expect this. It’s a true testament to Jim Henson’s creativity, and probably the most important piece of Muppet history.
