Trivia

Skeeter is the only one of the main baby characters who was never made in an "adult" puppet form for The Muppets' standard appearances. She is unique to this animated version, and was created because the producers wanted another female character in the show. She was voiced by men (Howie Mandel and Frank Welker), just like most of the adult female puppet characters. See more »

Quotes

Fozzie: Hey, Rowlf, wanna hear a funny joke?
Rowlf: No thanks, Fozzie.
Fozzie: Okay here it goes: what food do you eat with your mouth open? Give up? *see* food. Get it? Wokka, wokka, wokka.

Awesome...just awesome!
22 October 2001 | by (That dim space over there in the closet) – See all my reviews

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
