The Seven Deadly Sins appeared in the 1975 Muppet Show pilot, The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence. A running joke throughout the show is that there will be a Seven Deadly Sins Pageant at the end of the show. The Sins arrive at the studio at various points in the show, disrupting the orderly running of the program.


  • Although Nigel mentions a Sin named Rage when listing the Sins in the closing pageant scene, the corresponding Sin wears a sash that reads Anger. This is the only Sin that doesn't have his own scene in the program. Anger is performed in the finale by John Lovelady.
  • Sloth doesn't appear in the pageant scene; he shows up in the closing moments of the show, having arrived late.
