The original Muppet Show pitch to CBS

This video will make you miss Jim Henson even more

Making the rounds on the viral video InterWeb-o-sphere (™ 2012 me) is this video, in which a Muppet pitches the idea of The Muppet Show to CBS. It's brilliant, and will make you miss Jim Henson and his sense of humor even more than you already do:

The pitch sort of worked - The Muppet Show was picked up by CBS as a syndicated offering to CBS-owned affiliates (rather than as a prime-time show), running from 1976-1981.
