The Original Muppet Show Pilot (1975)

The Muppet Show actually had two pilots. One released in 1974 and the other in 1975. This is the 1975 version, it is interesting to see how the show would evolve (Kemit??!?). A great upload.

    Pure muppet gold!

    Nigel seems like a fine fellow, but I’m glad they went for my green buddy as lead.

    Bert can be spotted among the dancers at 2:54.
    Wonder if he just didn’t dig night-time shows (or being an extra).

    Also, I wonder who’s the lady in the picture on the wall at the beginning?
