UPDATE: We now have video proof! Happy watching!
As any good Muppet fan knows, the “Muppet Closet” is a national treasure. And thankfully The Jim Henson Company and NBC agrees with that sentiment.
In case you’re not privy, the Muppet Closet contains a set of pipes that were decorated by Jim Henson, Frank Oz, and Don Sahlin during a particularly long wait. For more details (and a sneak peek at the pipes), check out this video.
The pipes have been put on display in one of the most visible parts of 30 Rock: The NBC Tour. And to commemorate the unveiling, Brian Williams interviewed Frank Oz for a segment about the pipes to air on The Today Show this Tuesday, June 8!
Check your local listings, but here on the east coast, The Today Show airs at 7am EST on NBC. Be sure and tune in for this rare opportunity to see Frank Oz talk about Muppets!
