The Seven Deadly Sins appeared in the 1975 Muppet Show pilot, The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence. A running joke throughout the program 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. He is performed in the finale by John Lovelady, but Lovelady is not the character's main performer.
- Sloth doesn't appear in the pageant scene; he shows up in the closing moments of the show, having arrived late.
