Trivia

In the second season, the show was expanded to 60 minutes and the title was changed to "Muppets, Babies, & Monsters". An additional segment titled "Little Muppet Monsters" was added. The segment featured new puppet characters and animated segments. These segments were so unpopular that they were cancelled after two episodes. The remaining half-hour was filled with reruns from the first season. The show's closing theme song was changed to an instrumental version of the "Monsters" theme song and it remained until the end of the show's run. See more »

Quotes

Skeeter: Rowlf can pick up the scent.
Rowlf: I didn't know anybody dropped it.

Crazy Credits

User Reviews

Like everyone else, I loved this show when I was a kid.
9 March 2002 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

This show is one of my all time faves. Having the muppets as little tikes solving problems by using their creative imaginations was a really great concept. Like every other cartoon from the 80's "Muppet Babies" didn't talk down to kids. It was creative, and it would always leave a smile on my face after watching it for an hour every Saturday Morning.

Another well thought up masterpiece. 10/10.
