Trivia

"Muppet Babies" made extensive use of clips from popular movies and Hollywood shorts as part of the effect on the imagination efforts of each Muppet. Because of problems with royalties and licensing, these clips have kept this show out of syndicated reruns or seasonal DVD releases, and this problem is unlikely to be resolved any time in the foreseeable future.

Quotes

Gonzo: We love working in salt mines, right guys?
All: Gonzo.
Fozzie: Yeah we don't even mind pepper.
All: Fozzie.

Favorite Show
31 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember countless afternoons watching the Muppet Babies, and it brings back some of my fondest memories. The show really taught me about the importance of imagination, which I remember my grandparents telling my mom ,was a word my brother and I would always use. Like when we would build forts from couch cushions, blankets, and pillows. Like when we would play 'Star Wars' just like Gonzo and Kermit would (I was Gonzo). I remember my eager anticipation for newer episodes or ones that I hadn't seen before.

It saddens me to think about a future generation that will grow up without the wonderful creativity and warmth of Jim Henson.
