History of The Muppets

in: hosted by Rebecca Brayton

History of The Muppets Believe it or not, these world famous creations were first introduced all the way back in 1955 by Jim Henson, a college student at the University of Maryland. It was at this time that the first incarnation of what would become the Muppets were created for the kid’s show ‘Sam and Friends.’ Surprisingly, the energetic combination of marionettes and puppets soon became extremely popular with the public. As a result, they made appearances on various national variety shows and commercials, before becoming a fixture on the groundbreaking educational show Sesame Street. Eventually getting their own primetime show, it spurred the international superstardom of its cast, all while appealing to a wide variety of audiences. In this video, WatchMojo.com takes a look at the history of The Muppets.
