Jim Henson's Pitch For 'The Muppet Show' Is Brilliant, Delightful

By 04.09.12

I meant to post the video below on Friday but got caught up in Good Friday bacchanalia (just kidding) and totally forgot. My apologies for making you wait.

Anyway, this thing — a two minute video Jim Henson created to make his pitch to CBS TV execs for The Muppet Show — has apparently been on YouTube since 2006, though it’s gone largely unnoticed until the past few days. After watching this it’s hard to imagine how any TV executive could pass on the show. It’s pretty brilliant. Enjoy…
