A show for those interested in the big and small moments of history. My name is gabe. Lucy and just to put this on front street. I am a big ole nerd. I love cartoons and toys and variety shows where puppets tell corny jokes. So be warned. I'm going lean into that from time to time and today is one of those occasions. Yes it's time to play the music. It's time to light the lights. It's time to listen to me geek. Out about the muppet show tonight. The day was sunday. September fifth nineteen seventy six. The muppet show created by american puppeteer and filmmaker. Jim henson made its world premiere. On itv's stations throughout the united kingdom taking the form of a vaudeville inspired variety. Show complete with comedic sketches and musical performances. The show introduced audiences to future. Pop culture icons like kermit the frog gonzo miss piggy fosse bear and the swedish chef prior to the show's debut. Henson had made two tv specials featuring the muppets characters for the american broadcasting company or abc. The first special titled the muppets. Valentine show aired in nineteen seventy four and featured sketches riffing on romance in the idea of true love. the second special was an edgier affair and was given the tongue in cheek. Title the muppet show sex and violence it aired in hundred seventy five and use sketches based on the seven deadly sins as a way to parody the vulgarity of contemporary tv however neither special was well received prompting abc and the other american networks to pass on producing the muppet show as a regular series undeterred. Henson took the project abroad to british television. The show's success during its initial two weeks on the air lead. Us networks to rethink their decision and on september twentieth. The show began airing in syndication on. Cbs stations the first episode to air in the uk featured guest host. Joel grey an actor and singer. Best known for his role. As the master of ceremonies in both the broadway and film productions of the musical cabaret for the us premiere episode. The guest host was fellow musical. Star rita moreno. Who would go on to win an emmy for her appearance on the show. Each of the one hundred and twenty episodes of the muppet show's five season run featured a different celebrity host to make the most of their one and only appearance on the show. Guests would frequently request to appear in scenes with their favourite muppet. Miss piggy was said to be the most requested but animal. The drummer for the muppets. House band was a close runner up. Some of the most memorable hosts to grace. The muppet theater. Include julie andrews johnny cash vincent price bernadette peters monty python star. John cleese and sir elton john. Although the is live act premise made it seem like it was filmed before a full studio audience. The lengthy production time for each sequence made that impossible to preserve the illusion. though a laugh track was added. Henson was not a fan of the convention but conceded that it did help the flow of the show. His compromise was to occasionally poke fun at the laugh. Track like in season one. When kermit says that it's up to the laugh track whether the show is funny or not. The muppet show provided breakout roles for zini cast of characters. But for some of them. It wasn't their first appearance. Two decades earlier in nineteen fifty five. Jim henson created the muppets for a five minute. Tv show called sam and friends. It was aired twice a day for six years on an nbc station in washington dc. The show's star. Sam was a humanoid puppet who never achieved lasting fame but kermit. A friend of sam was a different story. Made from ping pong balls in an old coat donated. By henson's mother kermit was not yet a frog. But in abstract lizard like creature who lacked his trademark flippers and pointy collar when salmon friends ceased production. Henson's muppets began making regular appearances on the today show and on late night. Talk shows like the ed sullivan show in nineteen sixty nine kermit and a group of new muppets characters. Joined the first season. Cast of a children's show called sesame street as a career move working on the project. Seemed like a no brainer yet. Henson was reluctant to job speaking to a reporter that year. He explained his hesitation. Saying what i'm against is people thinking that puppets are exclusively for children. We've directed our work mostly towards adults. And historically puppets have often been for adults it's only fairly recently. The puppets have been pushed into strictly children's areas. As a theater form puppetry can do virtually anything thankfully for fans of big bird and friends. The show's co-creator. Joan ganz cooney was able to win over jim henson. She pointed out that. If sesame street did well he'd be able to leverage that success insecure funding for his own projects. She told him. Trust me. jim. It's just around the corner. You're not gonna be stuck in little kitty entertainment in time. Cooney was proven right less than a decade. After sesame street premiered henson was able to launch his own more subversive project. Something we know today as the muppet show. I'm gabe loose..

"Did you watch this episode of raw live. I did not. This was during my dark period. I was one of those people like a lot of people from two thousand. Three two thousand thirteen Did not watch anything missed. The ruthless aggression era missed. All of these yes toast. These were definitely things. I was hearing about because it was like wait. Why is dr phil on monday night. Raw rise peewee. Herman on monday verne. Troyer okay what's going on at some. Believe no one's mentioned jewel calm. Believe no one's mentioned that this episode. Where jewel was those out. We also had john lovett's and bob barker and snooky and joanna hills great hokey cokey. I saw wrestlemainia about. She's dig. bob. Barker thing is like i think some of them were used okay because they didn't make them do too much. They still kinda did the thing that they wanted it to do is that it broke into normal culture because people would talk about it and i would end up hearing about it or people who knew i liked wrestling would come ask me. Why is this happening. i'm like i don't know. Don't blame me now on the flip side of this. We'll we'll talk about the the chocolate and peanut butter of it all but you know i'm someone who grew up i was. I was a young child when the muppet show aired. So i watched that growing up the first album. I remember owning that. I still have a cassette of the muppet show cast album which features the song that i was satirizing at the top of the program. The weapons have been a part of all of our lives for as long as we've been around. What is your relationship to the muppets. Matthew similarly in that like i grew up not not like not knowing time without muppets like they were just kind of always a part of me. Watching sesame street watching muppets. Tonight was my big. Like i was like. I don't know nine or ten when that show started. So muppets tonight was like my muppet show. Kind of and. I love that and yet now i guess my relationship is that i host a podcast called commitment where we are going through and trying to watch every single thing. The muppets had ever done in chronological order. Starting back in the mid fifties. We've done like fifteen episodes. Were only into like the early seventies because there's so much to watch right and that's everything from ralph on the jimmy dean show to salmon friends to the dick cabinet show to a bunch of julie andrews specials they made in the early seventies and we're watching all of most of it illegally uploaded to youtube because a lot of it isn't like on disney plus yet but Yeah that's that's sort of where i'm at now so i'm full on like ingrained in muppets at this point. Are you doing a lot of the industrial stuff. So you get like cookie. Monster's the wheel stealer and stuff like that we've done. We did a whole episode on commercials where we watched like four hours of commercials to prepare for that Which is you wanna break your brain. You think like okay. I watched four hours of muppet show last week. That's not that bad watching four hours of eight second commercials. Cut back to back to back to back will drive you a little bit batty gonna lose it a little bit but it definitely the reason we've called commitment is because we don't know how long this is gonna take to get through everything and they keep making new stuff so it feels like a lifetime vow of me and my friend sam that we are going to be watching muppet stuff forever but there are worse life sentences to have. Oh for sure. I used to be on other people's podcasts. Where we would watch bad movies every week or old. Like eighties throwback action films. And i'm like that was really hard to do every week to watch another terrible movie every single week like it was hard to find the joy in that but watching a new muppets thing every week. A lot of which i haven't seen in these early days is always fun. Yeah even at their worst. They're still they're still pretty magical and at their best. It's just sort of transcendent and pure joy. And you know there's a soul and a heart to it that is impossible to to deny and that's as much of the people who are working them as just the characters themselves who've now been passed to several different performers each putting their own spin spin on them. Lindsey what about you similar. I grew up. Mopti it was on. Tv i one of my earliest memories is being absolutely petrified of count count. He was a real vampire. He was gonna come and get me. I just leave him. My mother's bed. I was attentive child. But i just loved it. We had i have behind me which is great for an audio podcast which no one can see but my dad was a muppet fan growing up and he had this league annual from the early early seventies. This hardback book. And i would whenever we would go over to my grandmother's house. I would obsessively read it like i would. Never i would always have it with me. It was even. That's not even watching them. It was just looking at pictures of them. And i have an i love it so i loved it as a kid and then i actually had some professional experience with the muppets in that. I signed an nda but the company doesn't exist anymore. So i think it's okay i ghost wrote or wrote the novelization of the muppet movie. The first new muppet movie that jason segel wrote and starred in and i remember getting an email from a friend who was the editor was like check your emails i need you sign an nda immediately. You need to do this. And i was like. Oh i'm really busy. I don't have time to do that kind of thing anymore. So sorry no. You'll find time and she couldn't tell me anything until i decided. Nda and obviously immediately agreed to it. So i was given the script. And i had to. Novel is the script. And i had a very short amount of time to do it and it was all super super top secret because they can give anything away and the script was wild because it had the dream celebrities that they wanted for all of the roles because they hadn't cast it yet. It was just such a joyous experience. Because i got to like hang out in this little corner of muppet world on my own making a muppet thing and being part of it for a second. I'm not saying it was the best part of it but it was the worst part of it either so it was it was. It was pretty fun. And i have that novel which has excellent reviews on amazon. In case you look at that. The book itself includes eight pages of full color photos so that's nice so wrestling fans tend to turn their noses up at anything silly especially on. Wwe which is avid. It's amazing the things that they will not turn their noses up at but when the muppets show for. Wwe is there a part of you that feels protective of them. Like this crowd better. Not don't you boo. Don't you in the wrong thing at them in a way. The muppets to do a lot of us. Who grow with them. They're kind of sacrosanct. What's nice is that. Yeah absolutely i feel protective of them like especially now when they're in like dry period where they're not doing a lot of stuff. I find myself doing this where kermit has been in a couple specials recently for the fourth of july and then he was on a disney plus pride special. They did and like every time they do something. I'm just like He's just gonna sink rainbow connection again like do something more fun with them. And i think what's nice about this episode of raw. Is that yeah going in. You're like. I remember watching clips from this year's ago did not remember until rewatching watching this week like what exactly was happening. But what's nice. Is that immediately. You see people in the crowd with signs for kermit and miss piggy. And they're excited. But the second that i knew the crowd was on board with this idea was when miss piggy and kermit or out there and jack swagger comes out and he does the most helix thing you can apparently due in the wwe is and he holds kermit's mouth shut so he can knock them and when he's doing that kermit's like struggling and you can't understand what he's saying and the crowd is getting angrier and angrier. Every time jack swagger keeps talking is holding kermit's now and it's was oh. This crowd is totally in. They believed the muppets are real. And i think it's something about the muppets specifically because they are puppets that like it transcends like you can have peewee herman on but people are still like. That's paul reubens but like they don't see kermit miss piggy and they're like. Oh it's steve..

That huge buster keaton fan as we see with buster keaton because he was amazing. Physical performer ingenious. Yeah he's still really good in this episode. Like i said this is a believer season three episode of once upon a time right and when you see buster in eight in the eighteen hundreds. It is a silent. It's a silent picture so we'll be going on the background. And when he's in nineteen sixty one. It's it's talkie yes it makes. It was a this was a trope of the golden age of television where people were finding. Resurgence is in their careers especially silent actors on cheating doing tv guests faults and that was something that lasted into the eighties. Where you would see things like buster crabb being a guest star on the gil gerard buck rogers roger Which was amazing because best craft used to play buck. Rogers in the movie serials bless. Your crab was amazing. Buster crabb was not only buck. Rogers was also flesh court. I do right. I mean how does one guy to be both guys. That's awesome so he's kind of hogging the cereals.

He get superman though so he did not know that's true he didn't get through kirk he you know we we have it or i've talked before about how there are some golden film stars who wound up having horror movie careers later on in their life like reema land or melvyn douglas where they star in these sometimes really good and sometimes really cheesy horror movies and that was that was a trophy. You would see people would like if you if your grandma didn't like your tv show but say mel torme was going to be on night court service. You could get like your grandma or your mom to watch the show with you because it was somebody from their era on your tv show and that was the thing you were seeing people. Getting their own tv shows he writing people. Doing guest spots receive as their movie careers faded. They turned to television in the desperate attempt to revitalize creatures. This is back in the day in the fifties. Even though television did have it did start out with noble intentions lie. It was still considered very much second fiddle to to film work. There's there's there's like you you know that episode that that doctor who special where it's Peter davison and semester mccoy to be a guest on the doctor who reunion show. The i can't remember which what's the. What's the episode. That has tom. Baker and john hurt. Oh you mean the day of the doctor in the dark like trying to the doctor. Yeah what it was. It was peter davison he created. This is called. The five ish doctors reboot yes so which is a play on the five doctors so called the fighting he was. He was trying to get this where the was figuring podcast considered by the way that's where they get their name and he's trying to get paul mcgann but paul mcgann is known as like the hardest working actor in britain. He has actual movie career in tv career. Yeah so he's he's in everything and it's just too busy do it. Yes he's best. Mccoy is talking about how i'm busy to lord of the rings and the hobbit hobbit they're talking about you know well paul's on a new show insufficient Will it's not a motion picture. He's very judgmental. About how like. Tv is like second. Do i love that. That that that the that that whole thing is just fantastic. If you're a doctor who fan just love. It's so funny and of course. Of course. Peter davison is trying to get david tennant right and and it feels like he gets up the phone. He's like your dad called again. Because of course. David tennant is married to peter davison The doctor's daughter. Because you dad call me again about the stupid thing. She stopped so funny but even sylvester mccoy. Like what was it. Two thousand fourteen was like. Oh it's not. It's great to have beyond a series but it's not emotion richard right so That was a big thing and children's programming was a big thing for television. A lot of television during there was not. You didn't watch tv during the day that much when tv for started. Tv was a primetime thing. And then towards the late fifties you started having people like liberace who came at like three or four and you know. He called himself a matinee idol. And then you then you had mike. Douglas merv griffin was daytime. Talk shows but a lot of tv after the today show after the morning news was for and a lot of it was audits and how do to being one of them right and the nineteen fifties was also had a tv show salmon friends which was the premier a character. You may two characters. You may have heard of roth the dog and kermit the frog sound familiar. These sounds lofa liu so you had shows like that where you had. So that's where. Jim nelson got his start essentially historical mature slamming friends. So you have a lot of children's tv show. They didn't do a lot of animation until sixties right and you had like kids. Tv host type things But you had puppets like howdy. Doody your sherry lewis and lamb chops roasts sites and so in this episode of on the air. These to come together where you've got sylvia hudson doing a guest spot but you also have mr peanuts. The number one children's tv star playing hardball during contract negotiations and mr nick quote folding like a deckchair in giving him a guest spot on your top primetime series. Right so it's still be a hudson and mr peanuts are gonna be on the same. Yeah and as it turns out. Sylvia is refuses to work with a puppet onscreen yet. The day i share screen with a puppet is the day they serve ice in drinks the cocktail of l. as with my favorite quotes of the episode. Yeah listen to me you sorry. Excuse for suck.

know the area very well actually welcome to Denver in the back of sinuses now leaving Denver west front Roxbury if you roll I don't know that just rocks that's interesting okay do you do know there are in there you're welcome so you know a good fresh water so well I did say I live there as I said I didn't eight it's great to be talking baseball my question is so yes about the extra players in the tenth inning so you put a month second does not take the book out of drugs or Alonso's hand are they are welcome this belief they're the guys up possibly yeah that's all part of it yeah I was thinking today the and Ron I was thinking about the idea of the three batter minimum okay like let's just say you know this is gonna be I guess it all depends what about what the ideal match up is but let's say you start with a runner at second a new pitcher comes in got bunch the runner over to third right do you then have the ability if you're trying to play this game walking to guys and create a more favorable match up your loading the bases but if you're a if you're the home team maybe this is a better option for you because you always bad and have a runner it's right makes the bottom of your any but you might be able to create a more favorable match up because the blunt and two walks would satisfy your three batter minimum and then you bring in the picture you want try to roll the dice a base loaded I I think that creates an interesting possible yeah bring a strikeout guy and try to get out of the inning yeah depending on where you are in the lineup yep this call real quick on first base we're definitely not going to like expand extending the first base into the fallen so the player doesn't run into the because half the time you'll see the ball hitting the player this call that I've ever thought of that given the extra like the softball adult softball league yeah exactly and it's only for when you're running down to first it's just an idea I've heard people talk about it but I don't know if it's ever got any serious traction and rules committees or anything like that it's it's an idea I mean you only see it anyway and the other catcher hits the runner right out on a bond or it'll screw around for the plate and you argue that you're you're in the base model based on things like that isn't a call always argued it's all well don't always argued all the time how many times do we that's more questions on the second the second yeah this is Judy yeah I mean we used to get a slow with your calls Hey anyone of us could do about second base I used every winter that was the one main call to matter what year it was they're gonna put a runner on second base in the tenth inning that's exactly what they're going to do people are fired up about this salmon friend Sam are you concerned about the runner at second base or do you have other issues on your mind this is Melissa how are you guys doing good how are you yeah really quickly because I was looking into questions about these guys yeah I'm a Die Hard Die Hard Mets fan and it doesn't matter how did the starting pitching is this is a different year we're only going to go as far as the full time takes up I think we got there I think that's fair is probably fair for every team but a matter of yeah you know yeah W. going six seven great out of the gate yeah and to a question so let's play devil's advocate wearing jeans fifty eight and then after trailing the purported by half a game or a game they're playing each other and with the new rule with the relievers haven't clicked batters who said begin work based in Milwaukee and Dr bottom of the eighth and he's got to writing we've got two guys out and then you have Conforto McNeil coming up who says Josh here warm so he doesn't get hurt tell your hater and bike what's going to stop these things from pushing the M. envelope you know what I'm saying yes in the injury he was tries talking about Neil is taking the injury to get in the relief pitcher the you want to avoid the three battle all the way all I got you okay yeah you're breaking up sorry I didn't quite understand I I I don't know I mean that's you know loophole well I I I'm not sure you know I don't know whether yeah I think they're doing they're gonna do their best to try to you know you have to have some reasonable I guess idea that it's a legitimate injury I mean I guess they do their best to determine that sometime yeah I mean could could somebody try to fake it and and and do it yeah I think possibly but I mean it has to be a real situation I I understand we say he's paying the picture he's running the picture that if it's late in the season this isn't just some regular middle game this is the game was deciding everything and you're gonna go to whatever lengths you can to try to win that game is wholly faster something I give him credit because he got a lowered again fifty eight of sixty four we haven't even started I don't even know if we can get that far but you got to give fifty eight so I give credit for that hi the next you guys ought to give you one guess what their topic is that he go to be second base outside let's go seven let's have at it sixty six fifty six everybody else get on board Tom and Wayne your next up on the fan I. Tom what's going on it all while you're on a date and all that seven years on the mat cleaning I hate the Yankees but do a great job thanks well the old one question that I have I haven't heard anybody bring it up yet what can happen when in the top of the inning you know they get the run around from second base the score and then the team in the bottom of the inning does the same thing and tied it back up I think that's going to be an interesting thing and that kind of goes against the whole premise of trying to shorten the game a little bit well I think yeah you're not thinking that everybody's gonna score every single run if you're just hastening the the the end of the game by giving teams right your score I love it I think you.
"salmon friends" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Hey welcome to the podcast. I'm just Clark with Charles W Chuck Bryant Howdy in Jerry. The last time this year yes just informed. She's all smiles. She is not very nice to. How'd you like that Presentation earlier the sensitivity training those great. Yes people because we work for corporation. We have Things like sensitivity training In in those trainings. You get shown video examples of various forms of harassment and they are the best most fun things to watch ever. They're pretty overt. Could Watch those all day long. I was wondering how much production company made from the you know they did. What like five little vignettes they. I'm sure they pay the actors like literal peanuts if they were bad actors. They're like the peanut bucket over there. Compare Yourself Yeah. The one that really got me was the actually. They were all really funny. But the one with the old guy in the in the factory loading boxes like a shipping warehouse and they were giving the old man hard time about everything because he was old. Yeah because he's old. And you know they were gonNA hard time seed. He's out of work for a while and they cover form the old man and he had the back. Brace on Jim said and he just look on his face he just kept getting a little more like pouty the whole time. I was like dude. That's good acting. Stick up for yourself. Tell these young kids you know what to do. The back brace prevents them from it anyway. Just had to bring that up because I I just think that stuff is so funny. And what's funny? Is People really do some of that stuff that you like what? Yeah there's some creeps out there. That was a really weird setup for Jim Henson because he's the least harass guy. He was probably ever. Yeah he's certainly comes across that way. He's a genuinely good dude. It's not one of these stories. You hear about like Maybe some of your favorite children's books writers or cartoonists or something. Maybe were bad. People know apparently not at all. Yeah he was not only so. There's a lot of quotes in this article junk. No I thought join Stricklin road. It turns out. That's not the case. I'm surprised yeah 'cause he's friends with down with at least one of Jim. Henson's kids are really who I believe lives here in Atlanta. Oh Wow and but in this article. It's one of those things where everybody who complements Jim. Henson who worked with him they go to the trouble of complimenting him in a way that's not just like oh he was such a great guy. Yeah they all back up just a little bit. Because they're cognizant that that doesn't get across sure and they want you to understand that they're talking about more than just the great guy like right always dead and I'm not gonNA speak ill of the dead anyway. Great Guy and that's a really thoughtless polite in offensive thing to say so like frank said something like he was a he was a a great guy but at the same time you know he was a human but he was still a really great guy right so like what you're thinking of is a great guy. Get rid of that and actually replace it with a genuine human great guy. Yeah because as a filmmaker. He's a puppeteer obviously but he was a filmmaker first and foremost which a lot of people kind of forget about. Oh yeah that's a tough tough job super stressful. And you and I have seen it can make good guys and ladies be real jerks and you hell under stressful situations. You know. It's it's a tough thing. There's a lot of money on the line each day and it's like everybody relaxes this millions of dollars. But Frank is I think that's the point. He was making like even when he would get frustrated and stress like that he was still a good guy behind it. All I read a a written. I guess there was a book review of a biography about him that that showed that it was all somebody said it was all just play to him. Yeah like work was play. Even though he worked really hard he was able to commit himself like that to work because to him he was having the time of his life. Yeah all the time and apparently like there was just there was no line between work and play which now that we've seen that sensitivity training right could've gone on a lot of big. I'll show but he he just enjoyed the life that he had from what I understand. Love cars loaded. That was the same color as Kermit. The FROG He had a Rolls Royce early on from his work. Yeah let's talk about. Let's talk about the guy yet. I mean if you haven't I just need to go and safe. You haven't listened to the episode on the Muppets This is what I consider. Just a more in depth part two on the man himself right. But that's one of our favorite all time episodes and from feedback one of the great all-time fan episodes yes. It was a great episode. Yeah it was just a lot of fun and so I hope this augments that one Hope you do justice. So that's actually one of the reasons why we can do episode because we did a muppets. Episode tweeted about US through remember. The Hinson Company did yeah. They did which was approved got their actual approval. Try and that was something the the muppets says. Something about muppets. This is about Jim. Henson is appropriate. That we're doing this. Because he was more than just the muppets even though everybody pegues him with the muppets and that is a huge thing. He was more than that. And like you said. He was filmmaker but originally started out as a puppeteer but kind of a reluctant one. Yeah he was born in. Nineteen thirty six September twenty fourth James Maury Hinson. Ma You are Y in Mississippi and his grandmother. Maternal grandmother was a painter and a quilter in a needle worker and apparently was a big inspiration to him. Just to seek out the creative in life right which is pretty great. Yeah and one of the one of the things he got into well. He was originally of kind of a fan of a ventriloquist them a little bit but he he said later on in life. They've never he was never like obsessed with puppets or anything like that like you would have expected him to be and as he went to college. I think in Maryland he He got into. He started out as a studio artist. That's what he was studying yet. He looked television above all else right from the time he was a little kid. He was just transfixed by the tube. He almost kind of made himself destined to be on television by being obsessed with it. Yeah but he kind of stumbled into puppetry In College and he started out as a studio art major and ended up graduating with a homework degree because homework was the only degree that offered. Puppet Making Courses Yeah He. He majored retook puppetry. Course at first and then a bunch of textiles and crafts courses which is a great way to me now start building and making your own puppets right so but he graduated with the homework degree but by the time he graduated he was already extremely successful. the Rolls Royce. That I mentioned he bought in time to drive to his college graduation because he'd already created successful shows in his town. Yeah I think he was in high school he was on the local TV station. Doing little guest spots and then In nineteen fifty five the show salmon friends debuted in that you know he also did work on the side making money with think. He did some of the really cool concert posters of the day. Really Colorful silkscreen posters and Salmon. Prince did really well but he still wasn't quite sure like I still don't know if I wanted filmmaker. The short films really sort of queered abstract short films Live Action. Experimental totally experimental. Did you see the timepiece? Yeah that was pretty cool. It was great way. And did you see the cube watch parts of the cube that was? Did you see the end now? Oh you got to the end. I skip the middle because those like okay get where you're gonNA this. Yeah well we should just set it up real quick the Cuba's a show on NBC. It was the one hour show and nine hundred sixty nine the name of the show. Nbc Did was called Experiment in television really is a different thing each week and he.

"Country and Canada and even though he had lots of success with salmon friends. Jim Wasn't in convinced the puppetry was for him. He went on a wanderlust to Europe. And there he was inspired by the puppet theatre he saw he recognized the puppetry had the potential to entertain. Everybody not just children whose during this time that he met Frank Oz the voice behind Yoda and miss piggy and Grover Franken. Jim were dear friends for the rest of Jim. Henson's life in nineteen sixty nine. The Children's television workshop shop sought out Jim Henson for new production. They were creating to help children who didn't have access to preschool. Learn basic skills through public television and Mr Name Sesame Street was born and the rest could be history. But Sesame Street endures to this day with many of the characters created literally crafted by the hands. Heart of Jim Henson. He played kermit. Ernie Ralph the dog guys Miley Dr Teeth and many many other characters. But Jim Henson's still wanted to entertain everybody not just kids. His lifelong dream of a TV show made with puppets but geared towards an all ages. Audience audience came to fruition in the first ever season of Saturday night. Live New York. The Frank is Jim Henson created eleven.

"We just read channel that energy into the fact. One of the things I love about Sesame Street is how they translate their characters in other countries. And did you know that in Nigeria they refer to cookie monster as the Yam monster? Of course Nigerian kids, I don't eat cookies the way Americans do. So the show runners wanted to make sure the show was promoting a staple. Crop that everybody could eat so Zobeir catchphrases me, eat Yam. I mean, if you're talking about how characters translate, I've got to mention Oscar the grouch because I love that grouchy people are just so universal every country's got one, of course. Yeah. So Pakistan has a guy named Akhtar. He lives in an oil barrel. And he goes by Kirk, and for some reason he lives in a basket. And in Israel, I mentioned this before, but they've outsourced job to Oscar's cousin in Moshi oath, Nick. And apparently most he's got his own style, because he lives in old car instead of a trash can, and according to mental floss. He's also an observant Jew. He celebrates Rosh Hashanah by dipping apples into sardine Greece for an extra slimy new year. Well, here's a character. I wish we had that comes from the Dutch, Sesame Street. It's a daredevil chicken name stunt, Kipp Kipp is a relatively new bird, but apparently in every episode she does something super daring while of frightened, rabbit interviews her about the feet. But you've gotta listen to these death defying tricks, so stunt Kip has gone on an escalator by herself use the bathroom without flushing herself down the toilet. Check turned her a bed for monsters, introduced herself, the new kids at the playground, and perhaps bravest of all, she told her aunt that she didn't want seconds of Brussels sprouts after eating all of her Brussels sprouts. But so, you know, Jim Henson is one of my heroes, and I always think of Jim Henson, as like kind of quiet and sweet fellow, but you can actually forget that he could be a little showy to in college. He started this puppet show called salmon friends that aired on TV, and he made some money off it. So he used that money to buy a Rolls Royce jussie could drive himself to his college. Graduation it. Alaria. There's so many things about Jim Henson's, early life that do feel like almost in contrast to the rest of his life, and I kinda love that. It's great. All right. Well, here's a cool. And did you know that years before she made cameos on Sesame Street and introduce their videos, of course Whoopie Goldberg used to work as a babysitter on the show? So she'd watch over the kids while they were waiting to be called on to set. That's amazing. I had no idea. So there aren't a lot of shows that have been taken out circulating, but had you heard about the Sesame Street where Oskar the garage falls in love with the wicked witch of the west. No, that's worse than a fire. Hydrant. Apparently they've reprised the character from the wizard of Oz. And he fell in love with her because of her green face, and I guess horrible disposition, but parents reacted really strongly episode. I mean intest kids were captivated by your face color, and actually tuned in really closely. But parents, mostly wrote in that there are a lot of tears and fears about having to watch him on TV, so they pulled episode from rotation and also Sesame Street got a letter from at least one wiccan, about perpetuating negative stereotypes about which is well and it turns out that isn't the only show that got stuck in the cycle. Apparently, there's one about Snuffy parents, getting divorced, that never saw the light of day because it was confusing for kids. And I know of course, one of the things I appreciate about Sesame Street is how they try to tackle some of these really tough topics. But in. In this episode. They got really sad because they thought maybe Snuffy dad had run away, and it did get revisited a few times later on the show. But not so head on as it did in that episode. And there's a Kermit the frog news segment where he interviews a bird, whose parents live in separate trees, and then there's the character, Abby, cadaver and her parents have have separated. So they talk about that. But it's not quite the same as, as the way they had originally done in the Snuffy episode. Well on a slightly happier. No. Did you realize that the only Sesame Street character whose testified in front of congress didn't claimed he was nervous at the time? And he, he testified about music education, I guess, and this is some of the transcript Elmo did didn't almost learned all kinds of things about music, like anyone can make music, the whole world is full of music, music, Elmo learned the alphabet, if it wasn't for the song, Elma would be loss, people. Wow. That's pretty great. All right. Well, here's what I think, is fascinating child psychologists thought it would be too confusing for people if kids watch. Humans and Muppets interacting. So they split up the scenes it was all humans. And then segments with Burton, Ernie, the only two characters on the show at that point, but intest kids basically ignored the adults and turned away. And then they tuned in for the Muppets, and there's a rumor that at one point, the producers thought about cutting all the adults and just making us show about Burton Ernie, which I'm sure would have been amusing. But when they saw how well Bernie did on the screen, the writers decided to create more characters to build the show around. And of course, that's how we got big bird Oscar the grounds and all the others, even though I know so much about Jim Henson. I'd never heard that before I was going to.
