"The Muppet Show Theme" is a song originally written for The Muppet Show by Sam Pottle and Jim Henson. Although it evolved visually over the course of the show's five seasons, the musical composition remained substantially the same.

Despite The Muppet Show being released even before Disney's acquisition of the Muppets in 2004, it is one of the few memorable elements of The Muppets franchise to be actively marketed in Disney media inspired by the franchise due to the success of The Muppet Show over the decades.

In "Muppets Most Wanted", when the Muppets performed in Spain, they played the theme in Spanish, with Spanish instruments, the females wore flowers in their hair and the men wore sombreros.

Lyrics

Kermit:
It's the Muppet Show!

Chorus:
It's time to play the music
It's time to light the lights
It's time to meet the Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight

It's time to put on makeup
It's time to dress up right
It's time to raise the curtains on the Muppet Show tonight

Statler & Waldorf:
Why do we always come here
I guess we'll never know
It's like a kind of torture
To have to watch the show

Kermit:
To introduce our guest star
That's what I am here to do
So it really makes me happy to introduce to you
"Ladies and gentlemen OK go"

Chorus:
So now let's get it started
Why don't we get it started
It's time to get things started
On the most sensational inspirational celebrational Muppetational
This is what we call the Muppet Show

It's the most sensational inspirational celebrational Muppetational
This is what we call the Muppet Show

Female Chorus:
It's time to play the music
It's time to light the lights
It's time to meet the Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight

Male Chorus:
It's time to put on makeup
It's time to dress up right
It's time to get things started

Homeless Man:
Why don't you get things started?

Statler, spoken:
Well, I always dreamed we'd be back here

Waldorf, spoken:
Dreams? Those were nightmares

Statler & Waldorf:
Oh, ho, ho, ho, ho!

Kermit:
It's time to get things started

The Muppets:
On the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational
This is what we call the Muppet Show!
