Henson and the Muppets also made guest appearances in 1955 on the WRC shows Afternoon with Inga and Footlight Theatre.

Willard Scott also got his start at WRC, as the host of Afternoon (later Afternoon with Inga). In Scott's autobiography, The Joy of Living, he recalled working with Sam and Kermit in commercials for Schindlers peanut butter.
