The show has both a timeless and time capsule feel to it. The skits with the Muppets themselves don't really feel dated, but some of the material covered in satire and commentary on the world at large give the show a slice of history feel.
The series may well have been the last great variety show, weaving running-gag comedy through standards, novelty songs, and sketches performed with impeccable puppetry and alongside entertainment legends.
