Enjoy Stuff: A TechnoRetro Podcast

The Muppet Show was a groundbreaking television show that showed us that puppets weren’t just for kids. With the show soon available to everyone, we take a look back at the history of the show, some of the memorable guests, and how Henson’s vision grew into something even bigger. 

 

It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights. In 1974 The Muppet Show helped Jim Henson to build his vision of bringing his creations to the world. On February 19, Disney Plus will make the show available for streaming.  In addition, we look at the book and the music album that helped to share the show across other mediums as well.
