Way back in 1965, Jim Henson made his very first appearance on The Tonight Show. 45 years later, that episode is being released onto DVD!
On October 26, a giant 15-disc DVD set featuring the best of Johnny Carson is being released. Rising stars such as Albert Brooks, Mayor Lindsey, Burt Reynolds, Loni Anderson, Dom DeLuise, Muhammed Ali, and many many more are also included on the set.
The episode starring Jim and the Muppets includes two skits: A Whatnot gets drunk and sings “Let Me In”, and Kermit in the “Inchworm” sketch. Lucky us, both skits are currently on YouTube! (But you should still consider buying the DVDs.)
Click here for more information about the set! And let’s keep hope alive for more Tonight Show Muppet sketches to be released onto DVD!
