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.

  • Out this week: Sunset Overdrive, Lords of the Fallen, WWE 2K15 and more

    … could very well be the best the franchise has seen in a very long time. Sticking with sports, NBA Live 15 dribbles onto PS4 and Xbox One.

Meanwhile, across the Atlantic, the USA is Japan, kind of, but also kind of not – a land…
