Muppet Monday

Here's a Christmas-related sketch from the December 20, 1965 episode of Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall that features reindeer Muppets attempting to make it snow. Not many credits survive for this one, though Jim as Dasher is obvious, and Jerry Nelson (who joined Muppets, Inc. in 1965) and Frank Oz must be in there, and I assume Jerry Juhl was involved in the writing. There's also a picture of Jane Henson and Don Sahlin making one of the puppets. Stay tuned for some awkward banter between a very Prairie Dawn-like Anything Muppet and Como, as well as Jim awkwardly accepting some praise.
