    Hey Everyone!

    I have the entire audio track of the Muppets appearance on The Dick Cavett Show in 1971.

    If you would like to hear it, you can download it from my website.

    Here is the link: http://www.KermiClownVideos.com/Cavett.htm

    God bless you David. Hopefully Henson or the producers of the Dick Cavett show will put this out on DVD.

    Where did you actually get the entire audio from? It was great. I especially cracked up when Cookie Monster said that Johnny Carson's microphone was "Bleech!"

    ...And when Big Bird said he was in danger because it's Thanksgiving. ;)

    I got the audio track in a trade a while back from another fan whose father captured the audio with a cassette recorder from the TV set, possibly when it originally aired. They transferred it to a CD for our trade.

    I hope to have the video of the show someday, too! Here's hoping!

    I would love it if The Muppet Holding Company, Sesame Workshop and The Dick Cavett people would work together on putting that classic special on DVD! That would be a dream come true!

    I love that fact that when Jim & Frank did the Glow Worm sketch on the show Jim was using Kermit The Frog and not Kermit The Lizard-like-creature! For some reason I find that really cool!

    Also I really love the classic Muppet characters from 1971! And that special had the classics! I mean it had Kermit The Frog, Big Bird, Erine & Bert, Grover, Mahna Mahna, Oscar The Grouch, Thog, Cookie Monster, Mr. Grump, Big V, The Frackles and The Anything Muppets!

    Maybe phil Chapman has the special, or he might have a way of gettting it from Henson.

    What I think is weird is that the announcer of the program said that :sympathy: was also on the show, yet he made no appearance whatsoever.

    Kermit did "I've Grown Accustomed To Your Face" and Kermit The Frog did "Glow Worm". :)

    Does anyone have a video of the Dick Cavett Show version of Glow Worm? I really want to see it what it was like with Kermit the Frog instead of the pre-frog Kermit.

    I can put it up on YouTube if you give me some time.

    The more times I see that bit done, the more I think it works better when Kermit wasn't as established a character as he is now. When he was more of a generic being, I feel as bad because Kermit wouldn't really eat worms like that.

    Listened to this and was amazed! Here are my thoughts.

    • Thog was pretty funny in this one, and I wish he could have been a bigger character (in terms of popularity, not in size).
    • Cookie and Oscar had great lines: :insatiable: "This microphone great! The one on Carson's show…BLECCH!!!" :grouchy: (in response to Carson's question about commercials) "Yeah, I love trash!"
    • Frank's Snowths sound a lot like Miss Piggy. Also, they weren't multi-tracked, so it sounded like one Snowth singing. Perhaps later they added an extra vocal for TMS version.
    • Very Sesame-centric show, with fun skits featuring Ernie, Bert, Grover, Big Bird, Kermit, and the Anything Muppets, too! Plus the Glow-worm sketch, Visual Thinking, and "I've Grown Accustomed to Your Face." Don't know why they brought Lothar, though.
    • How in the world did Jim think Frank played Herbert Birdsfoot? (face palm)
    • 5/5 would listen to again
