On the June 8, 2010 episode of Today, Frank Oz stated that he, Jim Henson, Jerry Juhl, and Don Sahlin created the Muppet Pipes in between the dress rehearsal and performance of their 1964 appearance on the show. The pipes, which were in a closet in their dressing room at the time, are now part of NBC's studio tour.
