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

"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.

All right everybody now calm down. Come on now Kermit, step on it.
Um, gee, the motor won't start, Piggy.

Gee thanks Piggy.
You're welcome. NOW GET US OUTTA HERE.

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
