Editors Note
Note Perhaps the strangest variety show ever to air on television, the wildly popular MUPPET SHOW helped to spawn an entire series starring Jim Henson's crew of puppet comedians. Combining musical numbers with comedy, THE MUPPET SHOW centered on the efforts of Kermit the Frog and his team of performers to put on a weekly show, featuring both the onstage acts as well as the backstage problems. Each week a new guest star, among the most distinguished entertainers of the time, would appear to participate in some of the skits and assist Kermit in making order out of the backstage chaos. Although the humor of THE MUPPET SHOW was often more adult and occasionally risqué than the later Muppet endeavors, it was still appropriate for every member of the family. SEASON ONE contains all 24 episodes of the program's first year (the 1976-77 television season), and features guest stars who are still well-known today, such as Lena Horne, Peter Ustinov, Candice Bergen, Vincent Price, and many others.

Quotes
David Johnson, DVD Verdict ...transported me back to a simpler, funnier time that featured a maniacal, incoherent drummer and barnyard animals flying through the air.
Jonathan Boudreaux, TVDVDReviews.com ...just as funny, imaginative, and magical as you remember, and...will make a welcome addition to your collection.
Keith Phipps, The Onion A.V. Club ...a place where avant-garde performance art...the post-'60s counterculture, and tomorrow's kids all made sense together...
MaryAnn Johanson, The Flick Filosopher There may be no greater touchstone among the childhood entertainments of Generation X...
Randall Cyrenne, Animated Views ...one of the finest variety shows in television history...an essential part of any TV-on-DVD collection.
