The Muppets are puppets who have outrageous characters. Rather than be sedate and polite like most puppets, they are bold and brassy, with a love of jazz and other non-puppet-like avocations. They are the creation of Jim Henson in 1955, and they are the namesake for the Disney media franchise. The Muppets have their own area in Walt Disney World, and they star in films, television series, music recordings, print publications, and other media associated with The Muppet Show characters.
Kermit the Frog, who is a bit of a wise guy and kind of the leader, and Miss Piggy, who believes herself to be quite beautiful, are the two main stars of the Muppets. Other fan favorites are Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo, Rowlf the Dog, Scooter, Rizzo the Rat, Pepé the King Prawn, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker, Johnny Fiama, Clifford, Bobo the Bear, Statler and Waldorf, the Swedish Chef, Sal Minella, Sam Eagle, Sweetums, Robin the Frog, Walter, Annie Sue, Pops, Lew Zealand, Beauregard, and the band Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem featuring Dr. Teeth on keyboard, Animal on the drums, Sgt. Floyd Pepper on bass, and Janice on lead guitar, Zoot on saxophone, and Lips on trumpet. Some famous Sesame Street characters became Muppets, such as Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, Bert and Ernie, Grover, Cookie Monster, and the main characters of Fraggle Rock.
At this point there have been eight Muppets movies released to theaters, the most recent being 'Muppets Most Wanted' in 2014. There also have been six Muppets television series, the most recent one being 'Muppets Tonight' in 1996. There also have been 28 or so television specials, including 'Lady Gaga and the Muppets' Holiday Spectacular' in 2013. That is not even to mention their half dozen video games, including 'Muppets Party Cruise.'
