September 15, 2004 marks twenty-years since the first episode of "Muppet Babies" appeared on TV. On September 15, 1984 the episode "Noisy Neighbors" premiered on CBS. The featured Muppets of this classic show were baby Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Rowlf, Animal, Scooter, and Skeeter. Occasionally they had visits from Baby Bunsen and Beaker, and even Staler and Waldorf came to visit. The moral glue that held these Muppets together was Nanny, a character whose body was only shown from the waist down and we all remember the green striped socks. I loved how they mixed animation with live action movie clips and filled the episodes with parodies, jokes, and adventures. The show lasted seven great seasons and, sadly, in December of 1990 the last new episode aired. Reruns were shown on CBS and Nickelodeon through the early to mid 1990's. Let's all wish the Muppet Babies a very happy 20th birthday!
