The Heart – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of Kermit the frog a character from the TV show The Muppets. The Muppet Show is a comedy television series created by Jim Henson and featuring the Muppets. The show ran for five seasons, totalling 120 episodes, from 1976 to 1981. The programme was taped at Elstree Studios, England. The Muppet Show is presented as a variety show, featuring recurring sketches and musical numbers interspersed with plot-lines taking place backstage and in other areas of the venue. Within its context, Kermit the Frog acts as show-runner and host, who tries to maintain control of the overwhelming antics of the other Muppet characters, as well as appease the rotating slate of guest stars. The Muppet Show is also known for its uniquely designed characters, burlesque nature, physical slapstick, sometimes absurdist humour, and parodies. As The Muppet Show became popular, many celebrities were eager to perform with the Muppets on television and in subsequent films.
