Great Moments In Television History #25: Vincent Price Meets The Muppets


In 1977, during the 16th episode of The Muppet Show, Kermit The Frog got a chance to interview Vincent Price and show off his vampire moves.  Later, no worse for wear, Vincent joined with the Muppets to sing a song.

I’m surprised that this episode was aired on January 16th, 1977 and not during October.

Here is the scene that lives forever in meme form:

  1. Love this – I read the biography of Price written by his daughter…fascainating, insightful and candid – he was a lover of food, art and of course a great Actor far beyond his later horror stuff…it’s a great read!
