This second Muppet Show pilot was produced in association with the Children's Television Workshop and filmed in New York city. Director Dave Wilson would work with the Muppets again that same year during the first season of Saturday Night Live (1975), before Henson and Co would finally find a home for The Muppet Show (1976) in England thanks to Lord Lew Grade.

During the chaotic final scene, the camera actually pulls back to reveal the Muppet performers.

Dr. Nogga from the "Planet of the Pigs" sketch would later become Dr. Strangepork in 'The Muppet Show's "Pigs in Space."
