Rainbow Connection Lyrics

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what’s on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we’ve been told and some choose to believe it
I know they’re wrong, wait and see.
Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that
and someone believed it,
and look what it’s done so far.
What’s so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its spell,
we know that it’s probably magic….

Have you been half asleep
and have you heard voices?
I’ve heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it.
It’s something that I’m supposed to be.
Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,
the lovers, the dreamers and me.
La, la la, La, la la la, La Laa, la la, La, La la laaaaaaa

The Muppets

The Muppet Show premiered on ABC on September 22, 1975, and ran for eight seasons. It was produced by Jim Henson Productions, and starred puppeteer Kermit the Frog and his friends Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Animal, Sam the Eagle, Rowlf the Dog, Beaker, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Janice, and Rizzo the Rat.

In 1980, ABC cancelled the show due to low ratings. However, it continued to air reruns and became popular enough to spawn a feature film, The Muppet Movie, in 1979. In 1981, the Muppets returned to TV with a short-lived spinoff, The Muppet Show Strikes Back, which aired for one season. Then, in 1984, The Muppets began airing again on ABC, where it remained until 1996. After that, the show moved to NBC, where it aired until 2001. From there, it went to CBS, where it stayed until 2003.

After the show left CBS, the Muppets appeared sporadically on network television until 2006, when ABC brought the franchise back with The Muppets, a sitcom starring Ricky Gervais as host Kermit the Frog. This version lasted for three seasons. On April 7, 2009, the Muppets debuted on Fox, where it has been ever since.

Henson died on January 27, 1990, at age 53. He had suffered from complications related to pneumonia and heart disease. His death came just months after he had sold the Muppets to Disney.

1970s: The Muppet Show and foray into film

The original Muppet Show debuted on September 22, 1975, on CBS. During its run, it became one of the highest rated programs in TV history, regularly beating out NBC’s Cheers and ABC’s Happy Days. Despite the success of the program, however, the show was canceled in 1978 due to low ratings.

After being turned down by American broadcast networks, Jim Henson Productions began looking overseas for distribution partners. A deal was struck with ATV, a London production company owned by Lew Grade, who was known for his work producing popular science fiction series like Doctor Who and Star Trek. The agreement called for $1 million per episode, plus 50% of the profits above $3 million.

In addition to the financial incentive, Henson wanted to take advantage of the growing popularity of puppetry in the UK. He had already produced several successful puppet shows there, including The Dark Crystal and Fraggle Rock, and he hoped that audiences would embrace another animated children’s show featuring puppets.

As part of the deal, ATV acquired exclusive worldwide broadcasting rights to produce the series. However, the network did not want to air the show full-time, preferring to use the series as filler programming. Instead, ATV

1980s–1990s: Subsequent projects

Following The Muppet Movie, Henson entered into negotiations with Michael Eisner, CEO of The Walt Disney Company, regarding the purchase of Jim Henson Productions. Eisner was also interested to acquire the company for $150million.

Eisner was also interested in buying out the company for $150m.

However, the deal fell apart due to the death of Jim Henson in 1990.

Nevertheless, Disney initiated a licensing deal with Jim Henson Productions, allowing it to develop Muppets attractions. This included the creation of the Muppet*Vision 3D attraction, which opened at Disneyland Paris in 1992.

In 1994, Disney launched the Muppets Tonight TV show and later the Muppets film franchise.

The Muppet Show returned to US screens in 1996.

2000s: Disney acquisition

Fourteen years ago, Disney bought Jim Henson Productions for $75 million. In doing so, it gained ownership of the iconic Muppet franchise. The deal included the Muppets TV show, movies, and merchandise. This acquisition marked the beginning of what would become one of the most successful franchises in entertainment history.

In the early 2000s, there was talk about Disney buying out NBCUniversal. Instead, they went with the smaller rival.
