Muppet Monday

This is kind of a rare and wonderful video of one of the last Muppet appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show. It aired in color on May 31, 1970, but the only copy of this clip that appears to have survived is this black and white version that appeared in a 1984 documentary called Henson's Place. In the bit, Kermit attempts to perform Leslie Bricusse & Anthony Newley's "What Kind of Fool Am I?" while being repeatedly interrupted by Grover.

Almost certainly, I saw this in real time.
