Overture, light the lights

#FridayFive: Muppets

Watching The Muppet Show in its prime-time slot in the late 70s and early 80s is one of my favorite childhood memories. Here was a show for kids that was for some reason on television when grown-up shows were supposed to be on. And our whole family would watch and laugh. And the guest stars! Freaking Luke Skywalker was on the show! I loved it.

Obviously YMMV, but for my money they’re ranked thusly:

  1. Kermit the Frog
  2. Gonzo
  3. Scooter
  4. Fozzie
  5. The Swedish Chef
