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.
Rizzo the Rat
Based on Dustin Hoffman’s character in Midnight Cowboy, Rizzo the Rat always obeyed his mother and never carried the plague, not even once. A sneak and a scoundrel, he can also be a coward. There are only two things Rizzo hates – heights and jumping from them. Here’s a short video of Rizzo doing what Rizzo does best. Enjoy. Rizzo the Rat.
