Kermit the Frog and his fellow Muppets put on a vaudeville show at their theatre, bringing in a famous celebrity to help out for each episode.
In February 2003, Disney purchased The Jim Henson Workshop. The deal includes characters such as Fozzie Bear and Dave Goelz, as well as the Bear in the Big Blue House (1997) franchise. Sesame Street characters such as Big Bird and Elmo are not included in the acquisition, as they are owned separately by the Sesame Workshop.
Ladies and gentlemen, it's the Muppet Show!
At the end of the closing credits, there is a scene with Statler and Waldorf.
The shows, as aired on ITV in England, were originally 25 minutes long, but the US versions were cut to 23 minutes (due to the fact that US broadcasters, in opposition to almost all other broadcasters, inserted two minutes of advertisements in the middle of the episodes). The 25-minute versions have only now been issued in North America on DVD.
