Guest Stars on the Muppet Show: Season One

Updated on June 26, 2015

It's The Muppet Show with our Very Special Guest Start...

The first series of The Muppet show aired on September 18, 1976.

Thus the country got to celebrate its bicentennial and the dawning of a great family show.

I remember watching it as a kid. Going from Kermets supposed to be on Sesame Street. To why isn't Grover here to bring on Ganzo the Great. There is not enough of Ganzo.

At that younger age it was all about the Muppet's not the guest stars. As I got older it became more interesting to see what the guests were put thought. Till now I am doing the looking back and remembering what the guest hosts had done besides the Muppet show.

It is now fun to watch with my kids. As they say great family shows can be watched and enjoyed no mater how old you are.

So for all you out there that have enjoyed the videos here is your chance to watch them all. And in order. One thing I have noticed is that there are two different openings to the Muppet Show. I like the newer one better. Sorry season one. As a side note the first time I watched all these in order is when I got them from my local library. The same is true for the next two seasons. Granted those were inter library loans. But whats $.50 when you can enjoy so much? With that said I hope that you've enjoyed all the clips shared from this collection of season one.
