News and events — visually

The Muppets are back with a new movie on the big screen. It’s time to brush up on your Muppet knowledge.
INSIDE the Muppets
Rod Muppets
The Muppet is usually held above the head, with one hand operating the head and mouth and the other manipulating the hands and arms, either with two separate control rods or by “wearing” the hands like gloves.

Muppet movies and tv series
Sam and Friends Sesame Street The Muppet Show The Muppet Movie* The Great Muppet Caper* The Muppets Take Manhattan* Jim Henson’s Muppet Babies A Muppet Family Christmas* The Muppet Christmas Carol* Jim Henson’s Animal Show Muppet Treasure Island* Bear in the Big Blue House Muppets from Space* It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie* The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz*

Two-handed and full-body Muppets
Two or more Muppeteers may be used to control a single character — wearing the puppet like a costume. The Mr. Snu eupagus Muppet takes two Muppeteers to operate. As technology has evolved, the Jim Henson team and other puppeteers have developed an enormous variety of means to operate Muppets for film and television, including the use of suspended rigs, internal motors, remote radio control, and computer enhanced and superimposed images.
Kermit goes by several di erent names around the world. In Portugal, he’s Cocas. In Latin America, Rene. In Spain, he goes by the name Gustavo.
Unlike most other Muppets of Sesame Street, Cookie Monster has four fingers and a thumb.

The earliest version of Kermit was created using a turquoise ladies’ coat Henson’s mother had discarded. Two ping pong balls were used for the eyes.

Oscar the Grouch was orange in the first season of Sesame Street.

Fozzie Bear was named after Faz Fazakas, the person who created the mechanism that allowed Fozzie to wiggle his ears.
