Much like WKRP in Cincinnati (1978) was with popular music, "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. However, also like WKRP, the royalties and licensing of these clips may make it impossible to ever rerun these shows in syndication or release them on DVD by season in the future. See more »

Mr. President, how does it feel to be the first frog in the White House?
It feels, uh, green. I mean keen. It feels really keen.

After the credits of each episode, Gonzo and Animal would do something that matched that episode's theme and it would end with Animal saying "Go bye bye!" See more »
This is without a doubt one of the greatest cartoon shows ever put on TV. The '80s were chock full of great cartoons, but this one (along with The Raccoons) was the best one of all. I'm a huge fan of the Muppets, and I think I love the Muppet Babies even more than the grown-up Muppets! All the characters on this show were great. It's one of the few shows where I don't hate one of the characters. My favorites are Baby Beaker and Baby Gonzo. I love Beaker because he's actually my favorite Muppet period, and because on this show he was cute beyond belief! His 'meep meep' voice was even cuter! And I love Baby Gonzo because I can relate to him so much. I've always been bit of an outsider who likes to do her own thing.
So all in all, this cartoon is a sure-fire classic, and should be put back on TV!
My rating: 11/10
