Trivia

  • Orson Welles plays a studio executive named Lew Lord who draws up a standard rich-and-famous contract for The Muppets, a reference to real-life Producer Sir Lew Grade. When Jim Henson was trying to find a producer to make The Muppet Show (1976) happen, no American network understood, nor was interested in the concept, Grade recognized Henson's vision and made the show possible.

After that first second we quit wondering: This is magic, after all, so who wants to know where Henson is?
