Sclrap Flyapp

The Muppets perform the song "Sclrap Flyapp" on The Ed Sullivan Show in November of 1968. This was before Sesame Street, SNL, or The Muppet Show. Jim Henson's puppets had appeared in plenty of regional TV commercials and a local Washington, DC, show, but to see them in the '60s, most of the US had to wait for a rare guest appearance on variety show and late night talk shows. It was always a treat because the monsters were just so charmingly silly. "Sclrap Flyapp" was a recurring bit that was done on several shows, varying somewhat each time. (via Laughing Squid)
