Do do do do do! Dave and I LOVE the Muppets
“Music was always an important part of Jim Henson’s work. He had a strong interest in all types and had an eclectic record library. When he began writing proposals and creating concepts for The Muppet Show in the late 1960s, they always included a house band that was to appear in each episode. At that time, Jim had a strong interest in the counter-culture movement (as evidenced by his experimental film Youth ’68) and sought to reflect that in the composition of the band. One proposal from about 1970 says that the band would, “…do songs like “Sunshine” from Hair. In fact, they are all dressed to out-hair the Hair cast.” (Karen Falk archivist, the Jim Henson Company)
