When did Jim Henson and the Muppets make their national TV debut?

Jim Henson and the Muppets made their national TV debut in 1957 on “The Tonight Show” (NBC, 1954), hosted then by Steve Allen.

Kermit (only one year old at the time) sang “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Your Face” to a monster who ate its own face and tried to eat Kermit’s as well.
