The animated adventures of Jim Henson's Muppets as babies. Baby Kermit, Piggy, Gonzo, Animal, Fozzie, Rowlf, Scooter, Skeeter (and occasionally Bunsen, Beaker, and Bean Bunny), under the care of their green striped socks-wearing Nanny, get into mischief using their imaginations. Songs highlighted the series. Written by

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 »

Hey, stay in focus. You're fuzzy.
No way, Gonzo. I'm not Fuzzy, I'm Fozzie.

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 was one of my all time favorites growing up. I think I saw every episode, up till the 90s episodes anyway. I loved all their crazy adventures and how they'd imagine themselves in movies and TV shows.
I always felt so bad for poor Fozzie. No one ever laughed at his jokes. I felt really bad for him in the episode where he wanted to run away.
My two favorites were Gonzo and Animal. I loved Gonzo because he was weird and marched to the beat of a different drummer. I loved Animal because he was wild.
And of course I loved Barbara Billigsly as Nanny. I always wished we could see her face, but maybe it was better that we couldn't. I still remember the episode where she explained why there are earthquakes. It was simple and in a way a child could understand.
