This game is for 2-4 players. Each person gets a two character set: Piggy & Rowlf (Vet's Hospital costumes), Fozzie & Scooter, Statler & Waldorf, or Dr. Teeth & Animal. Kermit is the director.
Each player spins two wheels to get an "act" and a "scene". You then follow the directions in the "script" to see how to move your set and characters. The object is to move your character set from backstage to the footlights of the theater. Beautiful photos decorate the character pieces and the game box while illustrations are on the game board.

Atari Pigs in Space (1982)

The first game features Link Hogthrob in a Space Invaders-type setting. Link's task here is to take out row after row of advancing chickens while avoiding their deadly eggs. The second chapter is similar to Donkey Kong. As Miss Piggy, players attempt to get to the top of the screen while dodging spaghetti strings and meatballs. Finally, you get to control Dr. Strangepork in a very Vanguard-ish variation. As Dr. Strangepork flies through a cavern, he must dodge menacing Gonzoids using a boomerang-like weapon called the Boomeray.

The Muppet CD-ROM: Muppets Inside

Inside your computer, Bunsen Honeydew tries to fix the program, but he accidentally "digitizes" all the Muppets and loses them in the computer. It's up to you, with the help of Kermit and Fozzie, to find the lost pieces of the game and the digitized Muppets.

"Muppets on the Go" is a title for Sega's Pico Storyware system. The Pico consists of a type of laptop computer that when opened provides a drawing pad with magic pen (mouse). Where the laptop screen would be, the storyware cartridge is inserted. The storyware cartridge is a book, with a series of 6 pages. As the child turns the page of the book, the image on the television screen changes as well. Interaction with the image on the screen is through the magic pen and the drawing pad.

The Muppets find themselves once again at the mercy of one of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew experiments. Bunsen and Beaker develop a time machine that sends Miss Piggy, Rowlf, Fozzie, Gonzo, Sam the Eagle, and the Swedish Chef to different periods in history and it is up to Kermit and Animal (who somehow got left behind) to save them.
Within each level either Kermit or Animal must take the clues that Statler and Waldorf give them and look for a particular item as well as each Muppet. Kermit has special powers for jumping extra high and throws paper airplanes to defeat enemies. Animal has special powers of stomping and throws drumsticks at his enemies. Levels consist of mazes and trails in which the player must collect fruit and complete each level to save the Muppet trapped in that time period.
