Kermit visits the famous Muppet Pipes

In December of 1964, the Muppets were booked for a guest spot on The Jack Paar Program, a prime-time Friday night talk-variety hour. The Muppet team – Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Don Sahlin and Jerry Juhl – arrived at NBC Studios in Radio City for a 10am rehearsal, but they were informed that they weren’t actually needed on stage until 4pm. With lots of time to kill, they opened a door in their dressing room and found that it was filled with dark, dusty pipes.

In this photo Jim Henson reflects on the pipe creation with Gene Shalit.
