Wave Goodbye To Any Happy Childhood Memories

This clip is from 'The Orson Welles Show," an unaired talk show pilot.  In the clip, Orson Welles is interviewing creative geniuses Jim Henson and Frank Oz.  Welles' creepy, unorthodox, over the top dramatics places two of our favorite muppets in situations you'll never be able to unsee.  Enjoy!

I'm almost certain that the Kermit and Miss Piggy clips were not part of the original episode but they fit seemlessly into the dark, overscripted tapestry of the show.  So I guess we'll never know.

The episode also included an interview with Burt Reynolds and a segment in which Orson performs magic tricks with Angie Dickinson. Fascinating.
