The Muppet Show, a half-hour long musical comedy variety show, aired on TV from 1976-1981. The action in each episode included onstage acts and frantic backstage activity among emcee Kermit the Frog, his Muppet friends and a live celebrity. The creation of puppeteer Jim Henson, The Muppet Show introduced us to many endearing characters, many of whom are being celebrated with caches in and around the Whitnall Park/Root River Parkway area.
And now for another episode of Veterinarian’s Hospital, the continuing stoooory of a quack who’s gone to the dogs. Along with Pigs in Space, this was one of the funniest recurring sketches on The Muppet Show. Loaded with puns, Dr. Bob, Nurse Piggy, and Janice never failed to make us groan. Here’s one of the best: Veterinarian’s Hospital.
