The Muppet Show is an American television program featuring a cast of Muppets which was produced by Jim Henson and his team from 1976 to 1981. The show stars Kermit the Frog, who was also a regular on Sesame Street. Whereas Kermit was a happy, perky and somewhat avuncular character on Sesame Street, here he is trying to keep control of the varied, outrageous, kinetic Muppet characters (and his temper), as well as keep the human guest stars happy and secure, an aspect of his personality that made it into his Sesame Street character following the start of The Muppet Show. The television show depicted a vaudeville- or music hall-style song-and-dance variety show, as well as the backstage antics involved in putting the show on.

The show was known for outrageous, physical (slapstick), sometimes absurdist comedy, and particularly for using its puppet characters to create humorous parodies. Each show also featured a human star; after the show became popular, many celebrities were eager to perform with the Muppets on television and in film. By the end of its run, over one hundred guest stars had appeared on The Muppet Show.

Muppet performers over the course of the show include Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, Dave Goelz, Steve Whitmire, Louise Gold, Kathy Mullen, Eren Ozker, and John Lovelady. Jerry Juhl and Jack Burns were two of the show writers.

Kids TV Programs " The Muppet Show

This TV show is produced by Jim Henson the known American puppeteer through British television featuring the Muppets. This kids TV series is somehow like a variety show which has singing and dancing portions as well some behind the scenes. The most popular puppet in this show is Kermit the Frog and he is the one who actually tries to portray a temperamental character in this particular show.

Most of the puppeteers are also on Sesame Street. The Muppet performer includes Jim Henson as well as other performers such as Kathy Mullen, Frank Oz, Eren Ozker and many more to mention. Since the year 1969 the Muppet creation have been viewed by many and it has quite turned into one excellent entertaining potion in the Sesame Street for the children. Actually, this didn’t only delight the young people but the old people as well. There were a couple of specials which were aired and were considered as pilot episodes of the show itself.

The Muppet show is more concentrated on the comedy as well as humorous activities that children and sometimes even grownups will surely enjoy. There are a lot of celebrities who find themselves interested in having to appear with the Muppets on TV. On the end of the TV show’s run over, there were more than a hundred guest celebrities who appeared on the show itself.

At a later time, Lew Grade the head of ATV has this deal offering to Henson that he will be able to see the show in England. The show will then be broadcasted in United Kingdom. From here it will then be distributed by ITC in the U.S. and worldwide.

It was quite a challenge to have guests sign for this and producers were then having certain issues so they had to call their own contacts to support them on this. There was this particular appearance which has been a major breakthrough done by Rudolph Nureyev the ballet dancer.

Because of the appearance of this ballet dancer, the show was able to get as much publicity and the series came to be one of the best series that people have been after. The show aired 1976 and stopped airing year 1981 to move on to other projects.
