SNL TV Parody of the Week-Muppet Show
For today's SNL TV Parody of the Week, we have something special for you. When most people today think of the Muppets, they think of the various Muppet movies, including the original The Muppet Movie, Muppets Take Manhattan, The Great Muppet Caper, A Muppet Treasure Island, Muppets in Space, and A Muppet Wizard of Oz, just to name a few. But the Muppets got their start in a TV series called The Muppet Show, which starred Kermit and all his Muppet friends in a variety type show, featuring a full Muppet audience, and one real celebrity guest host each week. Perhaps one of these days, we'll post a clip from The Muppet Show, but today, we have an SNL Muppet Show parody. (While not technically spoofing The Muppet Show, it's spoofing the Muppets performing a show, so that's close enough), so now, enjoy host Seth Rogen as Rowlf with the rest of the SNL cast as The Muppets!
