Behind the Scenes Photos of the Muppet Movie

I found a great little video that has some cool shots behind the scenes of the Muppet Movie. It’s weird to see the Muppets just sitting on set. You can really appreciate what Jim Henson and company did to bring these “puppets” to life.

It started way back in 1969, more than 40 years ago now.  Since then it’s definitely been gentrified.  If you watch the show today nobody is hanging out on the front stoop.
