''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 them to be filmed just like live actors.

** Jim Henson wasn't comfortable voicing puppets yet, so the early run of the show was segments synced to novelty records.

* MissingEpisode: Most of them, because the show was live.



* ScrewedByTheNetwork: In those early days of television, the show's channel WRC was very antsy about it, and kept moving it around the schedule. They even cancelled it a couple times, only to renege in the face of massive fan outrage.
