The BBC Intends To Get Things Started

You misunderstand, Mr. Baker...
Let's get one thing very clear: this is not the Muppets. The Muppets are owned, wholly and completely, by the Disney corporation, in both name and history. The Jim Henson company has nothing to do with the proper Muppets anymore, sadly.

A couple weeks ago on twitter, comedian Danny Baker announced that he would be the head writer for a show created for the BBC by the Henson company. Titled No Strings Attached, it will be reminiscent of the original Muppet Show, though based around the idea of a late night chat show. The host will be a new character created by the Henson company, and apparently, the first guest for the (unaired) pilot will be none other then Stephen Fry.

And, because I don't need much of an excuse to do so, here is a clip from QI featuring both of these men, but no Muppets, unless you include Alan.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
