    I heard about this several times. Was this a TV show or something? If so, where I can see the pilot that was taped. Also, does anyone any know why this didn't air?

    Well, it was supposed to be a sitcom, and it mainly focused on one puppeteer working on a childrens' show, and his relationships with his family and co-workers. I'm sure there's a page on it on the muppet wiki, but as I've never seen it, I don't know how much info is there. If you have the time and patience, there's a summary of it posted by one of us in the annels of the RHLC thread.
    As for why it didn't air, as in many things, I think it was a combination of things. I'm afraid someone more knowledgeable than myself will have to take over from here though.
    :) Hope this helps.

    Ok here is the page concerning Puppetman from Muppet Wiki:


    And the description of the character Richard Hunt plays (btw I wrote this hehe):


    And here is the summary that I wrote on the RHLC (at the bottom of the thread):


    Hope that helps. :) There's a brief clip on the Your Face! website, and it's also available for viewing at The Paley Center for Media (formerly The Museum of TV and Radio).

    AHH! This show really confuses me. I must've read the Wiki page at least 5 times and It's still fuzzy (No pun intended). Don't bother explaining it to me. It'll just be even more confusing. I just thought I'd tell you all. Now I'm sure you all can sleep tonight. *end sarcasm* lol

    EDIT: Now, to end my drama, I just saw the video of it online, that I found thanks to Heralde above. I think I get it now, lol.
