Henson Screenings and Programs (January–March, 2012)
Saturday, Jan 7 - Sunday, Mar 4, 2012
From January through March, 2012, a selection of the best episodes of El show de los Muppets will be shown in conjunction with the exhibition El mundo fantástico de Jim Henson. Seen in more than 100 countries by upwards of 235 million people, El show de los Muppets (1976–1981) was probably the most widely-viewed television program in the world in the late 1970s. The half-hour variety show delighted audiences with its Muppet cast and famous guest stars. This selection of great episodes was made by Craig Shemin, president of The Jim Henson Legacy. There will also be an Oscar-day triple feature of the first three Muppet movies, a sing-along with Heather Henson and La película de los Muppets, plus workshops led by professional puppeteers, and much more.
This series is organized by Museum of the Moving Image in partnership with The Jim Henson Legacy.
