The Periodic Table of the Muppets designed by Mike BaBoon, who explains:
"Each square represents a different character and indicates the primary Muppeteer(s) for that character, as well as the year and production in which the character made its debut. Borders align with hair/hat colour, background aligns with skin/fur colour, and colour of the abbreviated name represents nose colour (for characters with noses that is).
The separate sections are based on the show the characters were either created for or most often associated with. The icons within each section are then organized by year of creation.
The first episode of Fraggle Rock. This means we can all watch in sync all over the world.
Give me The Happytime Murders now!
A sharp-toothed prototype of the Cookie Monster makes his first appearance as the Wheel Stealer in a 1966 unaired pilot ad for General Foods Canada’s Wheels, Crowns and Flutes snacks. According to Muppet Wiki, the “Wheel-Stealer” puppet then went on to star in an IBM training film called The Coffee Break Machine. Later, he appeared (toothless) as Arnold the Munching Monster for a Frito-Lay Munchos commercial. Cookie Monster eventually made his debut on Sesame Street in 1969.
Muppet history is fascinating.

Seriously, imagine how Fozzie Bear’s opening monologue at the Oscars would have been. Greatest tv moment or greatest tv moment?
Of course we all know, if this don’t win an Oscar it’s a damn fucking disgrace. (Muppet power sign!)
The plan was to watch Homeland season one, but no, I started to play Skyrim and then time just said wooooooosh away. Instead this is what I’m doing with cookies and beer:
- Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas
- Muppet Family Christmas
- The Muppet Christmas Carol
You might spot a theme. Might.
THIS WAS VERY FUN TO DRAW.
These look excellent, Chip.
