''Sam and Friends'' was the first television show to feature Franchise/TheMuppets. It ran from May 9, 1955, to December 15, 1961 on WRC, NBC's owned-and-operated station in Washington, D.C. This was where Jim Henson invented the idea of using the camera's viewpoint to make a television show with puppets more than just a filmed puppet show: there was no need to hide the performers as long as they were out of camera range, enabling the puppets to be filmed just like live actors.

Added DiffLines:

* RepeatAfterMe: One of the surviving episodes has a group of the Muppets acting out a Creator/StanFreberg sketch in which a choir director (played by Kermit) is prompting the choir with the words for "I've Got You Under My Skin", and they follow along faithfully when he starts forgetting the words himself.
-->'''Kermit:''' "I said to myself, this affair..."\\
'''Choir:''' ''I said to myself this affair''\\
'''Kermit:''' Oh darn it, what are those words?\\
'''Choir:''' ''Oh darn it what are those words''
