Muppet Babies Cartoon



Muppet Babies was an animated television series that aired from 1984 to 1990 on CBS.

The show portrayed childhood versions of the Muppets living together in a large nursery in the care of a human woman called Nanny. Nanny appears in almost every episode, but viewers never see her face, only the babies' view of her pink skirt as well as her distinctive green and white striped socks.
Each episode included a single storyline. Usually the babies were confronted with a child-like problem, such as fear of the dentist, or a question, such as 'where do muffins come from?' Other times, they were simply finding ways to amuse themselves with old toys or video tape equipment. The babies would then enter into their imaginations, transforming their toys into everything from time machines to pirate ships.

  1. This show was a great running gag on Mystery Science Theater 3000. When Joel or the bots saw vampires who looked uncommonly small or young, for instance, they'd say, "Oh, it's Jim Henson's Vampire babies!" Consistently funny for some reason.
