* OutOfContextEavesdropping:
** In the Connie Stevens episode, Fozzie thinks people want him gone when they describe hating a bear. But they were really talking about Gonzo's teddy bear.
** In Danny Kaye's episode, he finds Waldorf and Statler sitting out the show, seemingly badmouthing him. At the end of the episode, it turned out that they were talking about a tuned clam player named Manny Kaye (whom they mistakenly thought was the episode's guest star), and they have no issues with Danny.

The immense popularity of the Muppets they created for ''Series/SesameStreet'' gave Creator/JimHenson, Jerry Juhl, Creator/FrankOz and [[Creator/MuppetPerformers the others]] a lot of valuable exposure. However, it also threatened to [[TypeCasting pigeonhole the Henson crew]] as children's entertainers. Thus the impetus to create a new show featuring the Muppets alone, still family-friendly but with a distinctly adult edge. Creator/{{ABC}} aired a pair of {{pilot}} specials, ''The Muppets Valentine Show'' (1974) and ''The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence'' (1975), but when all the U.S. networks rejected their ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KorhvVQRUM frankly awesome]]) pitch for a weekly series, they instead finagled a distribution deal with Britain's ITC, under the auspices of Lord Lew Grade.

***On a related note, in the first season, Miss Piggy was alternately played by both Frank Oz and Richard Hunt, the latter would usually portray her when the former had to play a more prominent character like Fozzie or George the Janitor. This is made even more peculiar in the first episode, in which the final sketch had Oz doing Piggy's speaking voice, and Hunt singing for her.
