'The Muppet Show' Network TV Pitch

Comedy (Broad), Other Gems (Classics), Viral (Time Capsule)
[ 2:39 - from Break ]

Experience the muppets through the eyes of a smarmy muppet exec in Jim Henson's brilliant pitch idea to CBS. Somehow the butt kissing is endearing out of the mouth of a stuffed puppet, passionately touting The Muppet Show's creative brilliance as 'Glory, Glory Hallelujah' blares in the background. I would've loved to have been a fly on the wall in the network boardroom where this first played, but I'm betting they cinched the deal at 'freaky long-haired dirty cyncical hippies.'
