Datamation is a computer magazine that was published in print form in the United States between 1957 and 1998, and has since continued publication on the web. Today, Datamation is owned by QuinStreet and is published as an online magazine at Datamation.com. When Datamation was first launched in 1957, it was not clear there would be a significant market for a computer magazine given how few computers there were. The idea for the magazine came from Donald Prell who was Vice President of Application Engineering at a Los Angeles computer input-output company. In 1957, the only place his company could advertise their products was in either Scientific American or Business Week. Prell had discussed the idea with John Diebold who started AUTOMATION magazine, and that was the inspiration for the name DATAMATION. Thompson Publications of Chicago agreed to publish the magazine. In 1995, working in partnership with Bolt Beranek and Newman, Datamation launched one of the first online publications, Datamation.com. In 1996, Datamation editors Bill Semich, Michael Lasell and April Blumenstiel, received the first-ever Jesse H. Neal Editorial Achievement Award for an online publication. The Neal Award is the highest award for business journalism in the U.S.
Prell is a viscous, pearl-green shampoo and conditioner product manufactured by Scott's Liquid Gold-Inc.

The Muppet Show
The Muppet Show is a comedy television series created by Jim Henson and featuring the Muppets. After two pilot episodes produced in 1974 and 1975 failed to get the attention of network executives in the United States, Lew Grade approached Henson to produce the program in the United Kingdom for ATV. Five series of 120 episodes were broadcast on ATV and other ITV franchises in the United Kingdom from 1976 to 1981. The series was filmed at Elstree Studios, England. The Muppet Show is presented as a variety show, featuring recurring sketches and musical numbers intertwined with plotlines taking place behind the show. Kermit the Frog is portrayed as a showrunner who tries to maintain control of the overwhelming antics of the other Muppet characters, as well as appease the guest stars. The series is known for its uniquely designed characters; vaudevillian wit; physical slapstick; sometimes absurdist humor; and its slate of parodies. Each episode also features a different guest star. As the series' popularity rose, many celebrities were eager to perform with the Muppets on television and in film. The cast of performers over the course of the series consisted of Henson, Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt, Dave Goelz, Steve Whitmire, Fran Brill, Eren Ozker, Louise Gold, Kathryn Mullen, Karen Prell, Brian Muehl, Bob Payne, and John Lovelady. Many of the performers also worked on Sesame Street, whose characters made sporadic appearances on The Muppet Show. Jerry Juhl and Jack Burns were two of the head writers. The music was performed by Jack Parnell and his orchestra.
