Welcome again to the Weekly Muppet. This week we are taking a walk down memory lane to see some of the original Muppets. Before Kermit was Kermit, he was just a lizard on Sam and Friends. Rowlf was the big star originally on the show. Jim Henson also did a lot of work bringing his Muppets into TV commercials. However, in true Jim Henson style, these commercials are not like the other commercials that you’d see on TV at the time or even today. They have a mischievous dark humor to them that is often violent and always hilarious.
See how Jim Henson used Violence and black humor to sell everything from Coffee to Lunch Meat!
