The Original "Muppet Show" Pitch Video Is Damn Near Irresistible


Take notes, anyone hoping to someday sell a TV show of their own: this pitch video for the original Muppet Show, created and voiced by Jim Henson, is how you do it. As Slashfilm notes, this isn't exactly new, but I had never seen it so I figured you may haven't either. Its pacing and escalation is pretty much perfect, and it's no wonder that the show was indeed bought after this pitch was given. If only all shows had pitch videos like this.

    I laughed out loud multiple times. This was great. Thanks for sharing. I'm taking notes.

    Thank you for this. This is why Henson is one of my heroes. What a visionary.
