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

Reporter: Mr. President, what do you plan to do about the high cost of living?
Kermit: Good question. I guess I'll have to get my allowance raised.

Yet another childhood favourite that holds up well
13 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

I adored this show as a kid. I thought it was affectionate and funny, with great educational value and fun characters. Re-visiting it, this childhood favourite still holds up. I love anything to do with the Muppets, their show, their movies, their humour, their personalities, seeing them as babies was a great idea and worked superbly. The animation was colourful and clean, and the music is cleverly composed. The stories and episode ideas were always so well thought out, while the writing was delightful consistently. Likewise with the characters, even as cute babies they are as endearing and as likable as the ones from the show and movies we know and love, and the voice acting is spot on. I also loved the educational value, Muppet Babies taught some great lessons simply and effectively in a way that appeals to kids and adults. In conclusion, it was a wonderful show, and still holds a special place in my heart. 10/10 Bethany Cox
