|The Rock and Roll Monster on The Ed Sullivan Show.|
The Rock and Roll Monster appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1966.
Ed Sullivan introduced the monster as a present from the Muppets: a small piece of fur in a box. It slowly grew into a three-headed monster (with built-in guitars and drums) that lip-synched to the song "Rock It to Me" as performed by New York garage group The Bruthers. After its performance, the monster slowly shrunk back to its small size, and was eaten by Sour Bird. In this appearance, it was performed by Jim Henson, Frank Oz, and Jerry Nelson.
