The Muppet Show
aired from 1976 to 1981, with silver screen related
movies in production throughout the 80's. In this
series, Kermit the Frog was manager of a variety show
house, and it was his job to make sure a decent show was
put on for patrons in the midst of chaos back stage.
There were hecklers in the balcony, Miss Piggy's
advances, and an entire host of other issues to deal
with. There were tons of heavy hitter guests on
the show. Seasons 1 through 3 are available on DVD, as well as
several greatest hits releases.
