Next year marks the 55 year anniversary of the Muppets, and it got me thinking... Out of boredom I went to http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Muppet_Wiki and was randomly looking at all the characters listed simply for the Muppet Show/Muppet brand, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, and Bear in the Big Blue House(which itself boasts an insane amount of characters) and was thinking... How many "Muppet" characters ARE there? If we were to include every single puppet character and background character from say... The Muppet Show All Muppet specials/tv appearances/talk show gigs Online shows(From the Balcony, etc) Sam and Friends Sesame Street ALL International Sesame Streets Fraggle Rock Fraggle Rock Animated Bear in the Big Blue House Jim Henson Hour Dinosaurs Sid the Science Kid Mopatop Hoobs Puppet Up Emmet Otter Muppet Musicians of Bremman Bunny Picnic Dog City Scary Scary Monsters 60's and 70's Muppet specials Big Bag Animal Jam Skrumps Animal Show w/ Stinky and Jake Late Night Buffet/Dels Comedy Buffet Tinseltown Unstable Fairy Tale dvd series Land of Gorch City Kids I mean, you add it all up....thats a LOT of Muppet/Henson/Sesame brand related characters! Does Disney even have that many characters? I'm guessing we're talking in the thousands if you tally every single puppet and digital puppet character from the above mentioned shows and brands.
