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.

One of the famous shows in the history of TV shows is the Muppet Show. Jim Henson the famous American Puppeteer produced a British TV program the Muppet Show with casting of Muppets. The main show runner star is Kermit a frog who wants to keep the control of antics and other Muppet characters. Kermit also tries his best to keep the guest starts of show remain happy throughout the time. In Muppet show you can experience some kind of serious comedy and humorous parodies that amused the people.

The uniqueness of the Muppet show is that it includes one guest star to perform with Muppets. In the start of the project it was very difficult for the producer to get a celebrity star to come and perform in the show and almost all of the guest starts were personal contacts of the producers, However, after the performance of the famous ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev, the show not only got a positive public feed back but also dissolved the problem of producer to get a guest start. As the show continues, many popular celebrities were willing to perform with Muppets on TV and film and till the end of the Muppet show there were more than one hundred guest starts that made their presences with Muppets in the show.

Muppet show was broadcasted from 7:30 to 8:00pm ET slot and it also turns over their affiliates. Henson proposed CBS Network to syndicate the series so that they can be purchased for CBS owned and operated stations in the condition that the series will run one night per week in the same time slot. Henson’s proposal was accepted by CBS and this syndicated the series. Later on head of British commercial station ATV Lew Grade offered Henson that he want to broadcast Muppet Show on ATV and ITV network in all operated stations in United Kingdom. On this offer, Henson neglected his idea of syndication and accepted the Lew Grad’s offer.

After five years of broadcasting with 120 episodes the Muppet Show was closed in 1981 upon the request of its producer Henson, who wants to move forward with other projects and also because of ATV’s separation from ITV network.
