Oversize muppet-type band from the 1980-82 show Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters. This five piece country band and their dog were created not by Jim Henson, but by Sid and Marty Krofft, since, hey, they were producing the show. Some of the puppeteers involved were: Tony Urbano, Sandey Grinn, and Carl Johnson. Apparently the band occasionally actually performed on the show. One song was called "Cowboy's Valentine."
