Okay, ladies and gentlemen, I have taken it upon myself to list and categorize all 122 guest stars of The Muppet Show, and I have here the results! Yes, I know, I have no life, but I thought it would be interesting to see it all on paper. So I went to Muppet Wiki and went through the list of TMS episodes to catalogue each guest. I went through each one, and placed him or her (or them) in a category. For several of them, I had to do a little bit of outside research, but I finally got through it all. Here's how it works. There are 19 categories. These categories are sometimes broad ("Movie Stars") and sometimes very specific ("Calypso Singers"). Each star is in only ONE category... the category that I felt best described the source of their stardom at the time they appeared on TMS. Of course, there are overlaps that aren't accounted for on this list, because hardly any of these folks did just one thing and stuck with it. Several were famous for many different entertainment ventures. But I did my best to put them under the label that they were BEST KNOWN FOR at the time of their TMS appearance (yes, I just repeated myself, but I want to make that clear). Some notes... -The "Movie Stars" and "TV Stars" categories are horribly broad. Included in each of these are people who also found fame on Broadway, on the comedy circuit, or the opposite medium I have them listed in. But I, again, tried to determine what they were best known for. For example, Rita Moreno has done extensive Broadway, vocal, and television work, but I included her as a "Movie Star" because I feel that she is best known for her Oscar from West Side Story. Similarly, Carol Burnett is well known for movies and stage, but she is best known for "The Carol Burnett Show", so she's a "TV Star". -I had to combine the "Pop Singers" and "Rock Singers" categories, because there is so much crossover between the two genres, and it was very hard to determine exactly who was what sometimes. So there are some that are CLEARLY pop (Leo Sayer) and some that are CLEARLY rock (Alice Cooper) and some that fall somewhere in-between (Linda Ronstadt). -"Stageshow Stars" were people best known for their work in Vegas (Lola Falana) or onstage at such places as Disneyland (Wally Boag) -"Dancers" include ballet dancers, jazz dancers, etc. -"Comedians" are people well known for stand-up comedy. Some (like Steve Martin) did several movies and TV episodes, too, but they stand out for their stand-up work. -This list is totally mine... I did do some digging to find out exactly what people were known for, but it all came down to my opinion. If you think someone needs to be in a different category, say so. I'd love to hear other people's opinions, because on some of these, I just don't know for sure! -Similarly, if you have any questions as to why I put someone here or there, please let me know. -Here's the breakdown: On the five years of The Muppet Show, there were... 31 Movie Stars 23 TV Stars 14 Pop/Rock Singers 11 Country singers 8 Comedians 6 Broadway Stars 5 Musicians 3 Dancers 3 Folk Singers 3 Jazz Singers 3 Models 2 Mime Troupes 2 R&B Singers 2 Stageshow Stars 2 Ventriloquists 1 Calypso Singer 1 Magician 1 Opera Singer 1 TV Writer Okay, on to The Master List!
