My love affair with the Muppets goes all the way back to my childhood, when I used to watch Rowlf on the Jimmy Dean show, and although I was a little old for the Sesame St generation, I was well aware of Big Bird and his friends.
But it was the Muppet Show that really cemented the relationship for me. There was something about using a bunch of puppets to put on a old style variety show that I just couldn't resist. For 5 brilliant season the Muppet folks put on an amazing show that could be watched by all ages and temperaments.
I could do several playlists of favorite moments with the Muppets, so I decided to narrow it down to only ones that were on the actual Muppet show.
To sing us out here is one of the best of all Muppet productions, of Harry Belafonte's song, "Turn the World Around" If you can take your eyes off Harry for a moment, check out the amazing African style Muppets that were specially created for the show. No one else was doing anything remotely like this in the late 70's and early 80's.
