Muppet Monday

I love old Muppet commercials, so here are three (the only three I could find out of nine) commercials that Jim Henson made for the Federal Housing Administration. These were produced between 1963 and 1969.

This one stars Kermit and a bespectacled Scoop. (Scoop and Skip appeared in ads for Wilson's Meats from this same time period.)

This next one sees Conrad Love dealing with The Scary Thought, a truly creepy and little-seen character who appeared in Jim Henson's first Limbo film, The Organized Mind. The Scary Thought is performed by Jerry Nelson here.

And finally, a house and an old man.
