    Description

    Jim Henson Signed "Saturday Night Live" Contract. A four-page agreement on NBC letterhead dated October 10, 1975, engaging Muppet creator Jim Henson to produce seven short, live Muppet segments for Saturday Night Live, signed on the last page by Henson in black ink. Henson ultimately produced 15 segments for the show, but the SNL writers were never comfortable writing for the characters (who were also unpopular with the audience) and the segments were dropped after the first season. This left Henson free to work on what would soon become The Muppet Show. The contract is in Excellent condition, marred only by staple holes to the top left corner.Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
