Jim Henson originally pitched the variety program as a more adult take on Sesame Street, and his efforts paid off: throughout its five-season run, the series was nominated for 21 Emmy Awards, winning four, including Outstanding Comedy-Variety or Music Series in 1978. The same year, The Muppet Show won a Peabody Award, an honor given to the most powerful or enlightening programs across the entertainment landscape.”
