Muppet Violence

In the mid-70s, Jim Henson created two pilots for The Muppet Show in an attempt to get his own tv series. The first, "The Muppets Valentine Show" in 1974, and the second, "The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence" in 1975. Henson finally got his show in 1976. This is the Sex and Violence pilot. It's very interesting as a precursor to the Muppet Show as it finally appeared.

(Watch through the credits to the very end - there's some nice behind-the-scenes footage in there.)
