Muppets Tonight! Logo 'Muppets Tonight!' The Muppets

Following the success of their stage show and movie career, the Muppet gang then had their own weekly television show. Produced by Kermit the Frog, the show was hosted by the hip and groovy Clifford. As well as the usual songs, sketches, skits and general mayhem that made ‘The Muppet Show’ so popular, each week saw the appearance of a well-known and well-loved guest star, who took part in the proceedings with all the enthusiasm they could muster.

The show ran for two seasons of twenty-five minutes, and while it isn’t as great as the original show, it still manages to provide the viewer with some memorable Muppet madness.
