Muppets

The Muppets are a group of puppet characters known for an absurdist, burlesque and self-referential style of variety-sketch comedy.Having been created in 1955 by Jim Henson, they are the namesake for the Disney media franchise that encompasses films, television series, music recordings, print publications, and other media associated with The Muppet Show characters.Henson once stated that the term "Muppet" had been created as a portmanteau of the words "marionette" and "puppet", but also claimed that it was actually a word he had coined. The Muppets debuted on the television program Sam and Friends, which aired locally on WRC-TV in Washington, D.C. from 1955 to 1961.

  • Review: Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney...

    … it means: there is a version of Earth much like ours, except… England is a collection of old-timey, cobblestone-laden villages where swordfights are common, people look like Tintin characters by way of Muppets, and absolutely everyone is obsessed with puzzles. Meanwhile, across the Atlantic, the USA is Japan, kind of, but also kind of not – a land…
