The Muppet Show that never was

Apparently, the original pilot for the iconic Muppet Show was much, much different than what the series eventually ended up being. The pilot was originally aimed squarely at adults and pitched to parody the proliferation of ex and violence on TV. Kermit wasn’t even hosting!

So, check out this segment of the pilot as well as the pilot in its entirety over at Laughing Squid. Cool, but strangely unsettling in a familiar, non-threatening, muppet-esque kind of way.
