YOU’RE ALWAYS WELCOME AT OUR HOUSE: Proof Positive That ‘The Muppet Show’ Totally F*cked Up Kids In the 70s

As a person who grew up in the 70s, there are many things that I believe contributed to my generation’s mental instability…playground equipment embedded into concrete, lawn darts, parents giving their offspring NyQuil in order to enjoy a quiet night at home, and The Muppet Show.

Yep, if there was one thing that could pinpoint an entire population of kids who, after being exposed to it, would grow up and become the kind of pathetic people they are today, it would have to be the subversively mind-altering children’s prime time offering The Muppet Show.

Think I’m kidding?

Here’s an episode from that show that should give you pause. In it an obviously deranged woman sings a Shel Silverstein song called You’re Always Welcome At Our House about a family who lives in a murder house where unlucky visitors are poisoned, bashed in the head with hammers, sealed up in walls and so on.

Watch the skit after the break and then tell me how someone my age was supposed to become a productive member of society…YOU TELL ME!
