According to the L.A. Times, "Each episode bears the 12-second disclaimer for a different reason, from Cash’s appearance singing in front of a Confederate flag to negative depictions of Native Americans, Middle Easterners and people from other cultures. Additionally, two episodes from the final season, featuring guest stars Brooke Shields and staff writer Chris Langham, are left out entirely." "The Muppet's Show" ran for five seasons between 1976 and 1981 in the U.K. after the original pilot was rejected by ABC. It was pushed into syndication in the U.S. after gaining popularity.
