Muppets Tonight was a live-action / puppet television series created by Jim Henson Productions, which aired from March to July 1996.
The Muppetts, those cute, foamy little creatures that won’t go away, were back running a variety show on station KMUP-TV in this short-lived series. Rizzo was the stage manager and Clifford the harried Jamaican producer. Updated versions of some of the old Muppet sketches were seen (“Pigs in Space” – “Deep Dish Nine”), along with numerous good-natured guest stars ranging from Garth Brooks to Whoopi Goldberg.
Clifford: I'm Clifford, your homey made of foamey!
