It all started on 29 January 1976, in a theatre run by Kermit the Frog, who had to manage the various sensibilities of the performers, starting with the exuberant Miss Piggy and ending with the sensitive Fozzy, all under the watchful eye of two grumpy old spectators, always ready to criticize what they saw.
All this wouldn’t be much different from many other shows if the characters weren’t puppets manipulated and spoken by a team of geniuses that included creators Jim Henson and Frank Oz, who had already worked on the also legendary “Sesame Street.”
Apart from the adventures involved in creating a variety show, each episode included a special guest, in the flesh, who interacted with the puppets and offered the inevitable musical moments. Anyone who has ever watched the series will remember stars like Steve Martin, Elton John, Liza Minelli, Alice Cooper, Diana Ross, and even Mark Hamill.
