Trivia

Skeeter was never made as a real puppet, but she was made for and only seen in the animated version. All other Muppet Babies had a puppet counterpart in the Muppet Show. She was created because the producers wanted another female character in the show though she was voiced by a male actor. See more »

Goofs

In the credits, Weird Al Yankovic's name is misspelled as Wierd Al. See more »

Quotes

Piggy: Scooter, if you had ten hot dogs and Skeeter took three of them, what would you have?
Fozzie: He'd have a tummy ache. Get it? Ha ha. Wokka wokka wokka.

Crazy Credits

AH Memories!
28 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this show as a little kid! The characters were just what Jim Henson created, they used their imaginations to have fun. My favorite Muppets have been and will always be Gonzo and Rowlf! I remember the cassette tape that they made and the songs encouraging kids to do what they want with their lives and I think that's great! My only problem was you never saw Nanny's face! That scared the dickens out of me! Now watching them as an adult, I love the hidden jokes for parents, and the allusions to classic movies like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and The Wizard of Oz. I can't wait to be a parent so I can introduce my children to shows like this that, (Pardon the cliché) make learning fun! My mother let us watch it to teach us tolerance, the use of imagination,take care of the earth, and looks can be deceiving. Shows like The Muppet Babies, THe Gummi Bears, Garfield and friends, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Talespin made Saturday mornings great and growing up a lot more fun.
