    Does anyone know if there were ever ever any MB Puppets created for shows, or otherwise? They would be pretty interesting to see, methinks...

    Well...There was the fantasy sequence in TMT and then the clip of them in MFC which was puppets.

    I'm sorry...I'm kind of new to Muppet Fandom; what do those abbreviations stand for? :p

    I would like to know too! I think TMT should be TMTM, which is The Muppets Take Manhattan (Movie).Dont know what MFC is?
    The only other time I think the clip played was in an episode of Muppet Babies itself, but again it is the same clip from TMTM.
    And then there were the muppet Babies photo puppets, used to make jigsaw puzzels etc.

    Wowzers...I would LOVE for MR to make Muppet Babies Photo Puppets...that would just be awesome. :) Especially to have the 5-Pack...awesome.

    Now, I'm sad, because I know that can't happen! :(

    EDIT: Oh, wow...by the wonderful power of Youtube, I found a video of the Muppet Babies from "Manhattan"...! They're completely adorable; especially Rowlf and Fozzie! Now I REALLY want them, everyone!

    I actually got to put my hand inside the baby Rowlf head! It was one of the greatest experiences of my life!

    Really? That is awesome! What was it like? Was it on the set, or were you in a warehouse, or...?

    How exciting!

    I wouldnt totally rule out MR making Muppet Babies photo puppets.They have a good relationship with Disney, who also control Muppet Babies.Thing is though-is there a demand?

    Here's a page of MC abbreviations, on an MCWiki! http://mctionary.wetpaint.com/page/Abbreviations

    But MuppetPerson was right...I meant MTM, not TMT...Sorry for confusion! And welcome to MC!

    Thanks, Beau! :)

    Also, I would be really excited if the Babies were made by MR...it would truly be epic, and I think the demand would be pretty high...perhaps. ;)

    MFC would be Muppet Family Christmas. I know beau posted the site, but I just thought I'd mention it here.

    Back in 2000 there was a traveling Muppet exhibit and it came to Flint, Michigan just barely an hour south of where I lived. The exhibit covered all facets of Henson creation, and one of the displays was a hands-on station where you could touch and play with odds and ends bits of puppets and materials. In the assorted pile I found baby Rowlf's head, partially dismantled but still enough intact to manipulate. Here's a photo:

    It really was the coolest experience ever!

    That was a cool picture lowercasegods. I have a question (and i'm sorry to get off topic for one second) in the Muppet#4 picture, do you know if that is a Digit puppet at the top of the picture, or is that my imagination?

    Also, i don't know what this is from, but if you go to the first video of the first LMM episode on youtube and look at the very begining before the episode starts, on the lower left part of the screen, there are muppet babies puppets there (its about 11 seconds into the video) looking into a tv.

    That is more cool than anything!

    Yes, that was totally Digit! I was so excited and wanted to play with him, but regretfully he was bolted down to the shelf!

    Darn, why do they keep the ubercool muppets away from us?
    (looks up to sky and yells): WHY!

    that junior gorg was also cool, as was the garthem (sp).

    Wah! He's all decapitated! That's still REALLY awesome. I would love to get that close to my favourite Muppet. :) It's too bad they took him apart though. I wonder why, and I wonder what happened to the rest of him...
