Johnny Cash & the Muppets

Thanks to Anne, I was reminded this morning of Johnny Cash‘s appearance on the Muppet Show in 1980.  In this awesome video clip, it’s clear that Johnny was having the best time performing with the Muppets.

According to Jim Henson’s log book, Johnny’s 10 year old son, John was the main force behind him performing and John even got to manipulate one of the ghost puppets. How amazing is that? Interesting that Johnny’s favorite characters were Miss Piggy & Animal; who would have thought that?
