The Muppet Show is the longest-running show on TV, and it was the subject of a new Netflix documentary.

The Muppet Adventures was a series of featurettes and documentaries from the Muppet Studios that was aired from 1988 to 2017.

The featurettes featured special guests, including actor Tom Hanks and Muppet performer Steve Whitmire, as well as clips from the show and interviews with former cast members.

The first of these features, called The Muppet Movie, is available now on Netflix.

Netflix will also release a documentary, The Mound, this fall, which tells the story of Muppet star and director John Mankiewicz’s early years in Hollywood.
