Ed Sullivan Presents the Muppets


Introduced by Craig Shemin, President of The Jim Henson Legacy

From the tube-shaped Java dancers to Mahna Mahna and the Snowths, some of the Muppets’s most memorable early characters and sketches were seen from coast to coast on Ed Sullivan’s long-running CBS variety show. Through the courtesy of Andrew Solt and SOFA Entertainment, the Museum marks 50th anniversary of the first Muppet appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show with a compilation of Jim Henson’s finest Sullivan moments, in color. Program duration: 75 mins.
