The short-lived NBC show featured Kermit and his puppet pals in a regular half-hour segment called MuppeTelevision, in which the Muppets ran an entire cable network instead of a variety show. Kermit tried to pull everything together, despite the usual distractions from his friends. MuppeTelevision featured a house band called Solid Foam and guest stars including Ted Danson, Bob Hope, k.d. lang, Dudley Moore and Smokey Robinson. Pictured above: Jim Henson and his Muppets.
