In 1964, while waiting to appear on The Jack Parr Show, Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Jerry Juhl, and Don Sahlin colorfully painted and decorated a set of pipes found in their dressing room's utility closet. Known as the "Muppet Pipes," this historical piece of "affectionate anarchy," as Frank Oz calls it, was excavated and is now a part of NBC's 30 Rock Studio Tour.
You can watch this morning's segment from the Today Show below where Frank Oz explains the history of these pipes and helps cut the ribbon on this new part of the studio tour:
Update: Oz also appeared on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams that evening, and it includes a more lengthy interview with him. Watch it here:
