    I agree with all of your ages, except Scooter, who I think is 12.
    Also, can 1-year-olds talk?

    Well, technically Waldo would have been designed to be much older. But he was created 'recently' in Muppet terms. Technically, he was created in 89', making him in his early 20s

    I like to think of the Muppets as a bunch of ageless characters. Interesting thread though!

    :news:: This is a Muppet Newsflash: Uncle Deadly is alive and well, and has recently been seen in Disney's The Muppets (2011).

    Uncle Deadly: The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated, especially since Muppets are apparently ageless. After all, Muppets aren't exactly human, since they're made from foam, fleece, felt-like materials, etc., and they're just as alive as their Muppeteers and everyone who enjoys their unique brand of humor, whether on TV, in the movies, or even special guest appearances.....

    I'm not entirely sure how old the Muppets are supposed to be. All I know is that, while it's obvious that they do age (in the 2011 movie they acknowledge how much time has passed), they age slower than we do. Assuming they were young adults on TMS, they'd be at least in their 50s by now. They seem younger than that to me.

    According to the Muppet Show style book, Scooter is about 14 years old. Also, I totally agree with Casey. It's kind of disturbing to me to think that Kermit is in his 30's, Pepe is in his 20's and The Swedish Chef is in his 60's ( ! ).

    Perhaps the Muppets have some sort of "floating age" factor, since the Simpsons have been on the air for a little over 20 years, and they still stay about the same age, which means that if you allowed for real-time age adjustments, Homer would probably be 47, Marge about 40, Bart 30, Lisa 26, and Maggie would be 21.

    These are all approximate estimates, however....

    Even Jack Benny lived to the ripe age of "39", but we know better......

    Good idea!I always asked:,,How old are they??"
    Ok,Kermit-don't know so much.
    Piggy-she will always tell you she is 20.... :D
    You are all right.But I think Beaker is 20-27 or something like that.In one episode,Bunsen said:,,Beaker!Where is your young...."So,I think Beaker is more 25 or a little bit older.
