Jim Henson's original pitch reel for The Muppet Show, starring Leo from Henson's strange series of corporate training videos, The Muppet Meeting Films.

Key selling points:

"Small children will love the cute cuddly characters. Young people will love the fresh innovative comedy. College kids and intellectual eggheads will love the underlying symbolism of everything. Freaky long hair, dirty, cynical hippies will love our freaky long hair, dirty, cynical Muppets."

It's inspirational, celebrational, muppetational!
