The Muppet Show Colorforms (1980)

With the Muppets making their return to the big screen today across that nation, it seemed the perfect time to shine the spotlight on this Colorforms set from back in 1980 for the Muppet Show.

First of all I have to point out that the artwork for the set, both the box and interior art were done by none other than the legendary movie poster illustrator Drew Struzan!

It appears that you used the Colorforms to dress up Fozzie Bear, Kermit the Frog, and Miss Piggy. Perhaps the guide with the set allowed you to put on various shows?

A very big thanks to the Muppet Wiki for the photos you see above and to the Muppets Studio channel over on YouTube for the World Premiere footage. So how many of you are planning on seeing the Muppets this week?
