Puppets are just drag you wear on your hand, and the Muppet Show was one of the nuttiest, most sophisticated shows on television in the 70s, despite (or because of?) its children’s-TV roots. Here Debbie […]


  1. What year was this show aired?

  2. Good question! Probably 1978-80.

  11. I always enjoyed the guest stars and cameos on the Muppet Show – there really hasn’t been anything like it since, has there?

    Jim Henson was a genius and Frank Oz (Miss Piggy’s alter ego) still sends me into fits – he’s been in a few of my favourite films and just steals the damn scene every time! *giggle*
