    When I was about 6 my back yard neighbors older brother had boxes of Miss Piggly Muppets. One day we played with about 10 different MS Peggies that where dressed in different outfits. That was 1977. I'm not sure what his connection with the show was. Fun times, Thanks for sharing this video.

    I was the recording engineer for the pilot for the muppet show. It was called "sex & violence with the muppets" I would venture into the studio during breaks & spoke with Jim, Frank and the rest of the puppeteers. The puppet handlers would take the puppetts out of locked cases, fluff the feathers and hair then hand them to the puppeteers.. One set was that of Mt. Rushmore. Even getting super close to it, they seemed to be so real looking. Jim was super nice to tall with.

    I'm not so sure these are the "original" ones, there's a lot of subtle changes in the colour schemes and headshape over time with different puppets, these look more like the ones from the mid 90s muppets tonight sort of period. The original Waldorf's head was wider, and the original Statler wasn't so pointy at the top. Edit: I should have watched all the way through, they do say later on that they're 90s and 80s respectively later on in the video
