The Muppet Show - Series One
Perhaps the strangest variety show ever to air on television, the wildly popular The Muppet Show helped to spawn an entire series starring Jim Henson's crew of puppet comedians. Combining musical numbers with comedy, The Muppet Show centred on the efforts of Kermit the Frog and his team of performers to put on a weekly show, featuring both the onstage acts as well as the backstage problems. Each week a new guest star, among the most distinguished entertainers of the time, would appear to participate in some of the skits and assist Kermit in making order out of the backstage chaos. Although the humour of The Muppet Show was often more adult and occasionally risque than the later Muppet endeavours, it was still appropriate for every member of the family.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
