The Muppet Show: UK Spots

Part of Family Matinees & Jim Henson's World (2017)
Sunday, November 19, 2017, 11:00 a.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Bartos Screening Room

In the United Kingdom where The Muppet Show was taped, commercial breaks were shorter, so there was always an extra two minutes of content—a rip-roaring musical number or sketch, sometimes even an old music hall song catered to English tastes—in the international version that did not appear in the United States. In this program, we present a compilation of these rare, restored, and never-before-seen U.K. spots. Program duration: 90 mins.

Tickets: $15 ($11 seniors and students / $7 youth (ages 3–17) / free for children under 3 and Museum members at the Film Lover and Kids Premium levels and above). Order tickets online. (Members may contact [email protected] with questions regarding online reservations.)
