Can you I.D. these super Seventies celebrities on The Muppet Show?

Recognize these comedians, singers and superheroes?

The Muppet Show was unlike anything television had seen before when it premiered in primetime in 1976. Sure, pioneering puppeteer Jim Henson had brought his fuzzy creations to The Ed Sullivan Show years early, and there had been puppet shows for children, but The Muppet Show was something entirely new.

The Muppet Show was aimed at adults, too. It broke the fourth wall. It was a show about a show. The characters were treated as living actors.

And, there were some spectacular celebrity guest stars on the series. See if you can recognize them all!

I only missed Kaye Ballard. Never heard of her, never heard of two of the three choices for the correct answer to that question (the correct answer was one of the ones I'd never heard of).
