Des O'Connor Entertains was a variety show from the United Kingdom, hosted by Des O'Connor and featuring guest stars, singing, dancing and comedy sketches. The Muppets made a guest appearance on February 27, 1976 to promote The Muppet Show.

Joining Des O'Connor at a panel table were Kermit (who refers to himself as the executive producer), Hilda, George the Janitor ('the janitorial engineer'), Waldorf (so far unnamed and mostly asleep), Sam the Eagle, and a green bespectacled Whatnot at a typewriter. After introducing his team, Kermit came up with a concept for a chat show with guest stars, hosted by Des O'Connor with help from the frog.

Since Frank Oz performed Sam Eagle, another performer took over George the Janitor.

The same episode featured a guest appearance by Jack Parnell and his orchestra, who provided the music for The Muppet Show.

Des O'Connor won a Special Recognition Award at the National Television Awards in 2001. Clips from the Muppets' scene were shown and Kermit made a quick appearance, thanking Des for introducing the British audience to the Muppets.
