The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson with guest Jim Henson (1974)
I believe Johnny introduces him as Jim Jenson in this clip. It originally aired in January of 1974, but this performance originated about a decade earlier. The creepy electronic music was composed by Raymond "Powerhouse" Scott.
My long awaited book about comedy will be published by Grove Atlantic in 2015.
