Start Wearing Purple: Muppet Edition

Start Wearing Purple: Muppet Edition

Sesame Street’s The Count sings along with NY polka-punk band Gogol Bordello’s track Start Wearing Purple, a song about growing old and going senile, which seems rather ironic for a vampire who is likely immortal.

The First Muppet Show

The First Muppet Show

Most of us had our first encounter with Muppets on Sesame Street. But it turns out that wasn’t Jim Henson’s first television show. Long before The Muppet Show, Henson created a quirky little show called Sam and Friends. Defunctland’s excellent miniseries explains how Henson – and Kermit the frog – got their start.

Sesame Street Sabotage

Sesame Street Sabotage

Mashup master Mylo the Cat diced up footage from the 1985 Sesame Street flick Follow That Bird to create a muppet version of the video for Beastie Boys’ 1994 classic Sabotage. The only thing missing are the cheesy ’70s mustaches.

Gnaws T-Shirt

Gnaws T-Shirt

You’ll never go in the water again… at least if you’re a chocolate chip cookie, you won’t. That’s because there’s a big, blue, insatiable monster lurking beneath the surface, ready to strike any minute and chomp on your ass. Firebeard’s t-shirt is perfect for any fan of muppets, cookies, sharks, or Steven Spielberg.

Sesame Street Tiny Desk Concert

Sesame Street Tiny Desk Concert

Public television meets public radio with a celebration of Sesame Street’s 50 years on TV, as Big Bird, Ernie, Bert, Grover, Oscar the Grouch, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Rosita, Abby Cadabby and a few people from the neighborhood regale us with 15 minutes of our childhood favorite earworms.

The Muppets without Muppets

The Muppets without Muppets

The guys at MetaFilter dug up this little gem that dates way back to 1976. At the close of the first season of The Muppet Show, the crew of series performed the opening song and a few skits without the Muppets or their voice actors. We had no idea the show was shot in England.

How Sesame Street’s Muppets Work

How Sesame Street’s Muppets Work

WIRED takes us behind the scenes with the cast of Sesame Street for a look at how the performers operate each of their Muppets, along with a few other cool tidbits about the art of puppetry. Their arms must get so tired over their heads like that all the time.

The Ultimate Infinity War

The Ultimate Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War includes just about every major MCU character yet. But Marvel could have added many other characters under their parent company’s umbrella to round out the cast even further. Nerdist envisions what that movie might have been like.

Miss Piggy: Diamonds

Miss Piggy: Diamonds

Mylo the Cat presents another Muppet mashup, this time giving Miss Piggy the perfect song to sing, Rihanna’s 2012 megahit Diamonds. We’re pretty sure that Piggy would throw a major hissy fit if she found out her tiara was made from Cubic Zirconia.

Metal Muppet Show

Metal Muppet Show

It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights… Heavy metal musician Leo Moracchioli takes on the theme song from The Muppet Show in the best possible way, with a puppet-filled music video, and a growly interpretation of the tune that would make Animal proud.

Mahna Mahna 1.0

Mahna Mahna 1.0

If there’s one tune that’s sure to get stuck in your head and rattle around all day, it’s the classic Mahna Mahna. This early appearance of the track on a 1969 episode of Sesame Street with crawl into your ear like that creature from Wrath of Khan, and won’t let go.

Fozzie Cent: In Da Club

Fozzie Cent: In Da Club

(PG-13: Language) Go Fozzie. It’s your birthday! America’s favorite stand-up comic bear parties his ass off in Mylo the Cat’s latest Muppet remix video. The clip got us wondering just how does a Muppet ingest liquor and weed, since they have no esophagus or windpipe.

Funko Reaction x The Dark Crystal

Funko Reaction x The Dark Crystal

Jim Henson & Frank Oz’s The Dark Crystal, is a masterpiece. Funko’s retro-style ReAction line is offering a series of figures inspired by the film, including The Chamberlain, Ursol the Chanter, Jen, Aughra, and Kira (with Fizzgig.) There’s also a Landstrider collectible from SDCC 2016.

Kermit x David Byrne

Kermit x David Byrne

Laser Time dug up this juicy nugget from an old episode of Muppets Tonight, in which Kermit donned a giant suit and proceeded to sing (er talk) a cover of Talking Heads’ classic Once in a Lifetime. You must stick around for Statler and Waldorf at the end. Same as it ever was.

Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem Live

Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem Live

The Muppet Show‘s house band reunited at Outside Lands 2016 in the first and only stop of their world tour. The band performed Can You Picture That, Mowgli’s San Francisco, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ Home, and the Beatles’ With a Little Help From My Friends.

Who Am I?: Muppets Edition

Who Am I?: Muppets Edition

(PG-13: Language) Bow wow wow yippee yo yippee yay! Mylo The Cat’s latest video stars Rowlf the Dog in the role of Snoop Dogg, and Fozzie Bear as Dr. Dre as they lip-sync the classic Who Am I? (What’s My Name). We had no idea Muppets could swear so much.

Henson and Oz Ad-Lib

Henson and Oz Ad-Lib

Kermit the frog calls into question Fozzie Bear’s very existence, and Piggy and Kermie share an intimate moment in these improv screen tests between Jim Henson and Frank Oz during the filming of the 1979 classic The Muppet Movie.

My Name Is: Muppets Version

My Name Is: Muppets Version

Wiki-wiki-wiki-wiki… Video wizard Mylo the Cat is back with another musical Muppets mashup. This time, the mild-mannered Scooter takes on the role of bad boy Eminem. We will now think of him as Scoot Shady from this day forward.

Electric Submarine T-Shirt

Electric Submarine T-Shirt

The Beatles meet the Muppets in this whimsical tee by artist James Hance, which envisions a world in which Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem take a psychedelic trip under the sea. We’re assuming that Sam the Eagle plays a Blue Meanie in this version.

HBO’s Sesame Street

HBO’s Sesame Street

It was recently announced that Sesame Street would be airing episodes on HBO. But if the guys at Barely Productions are to be believed (and they aren’t), the gang will be getting decidedly more adult, per HBO standards.

Nosh of the Titans

Nosh of the Titans

Their Clash of the Titans parody might not exactly timely, but Sesame Street’s lesson about focusing and paying attention is still amusing, as Cookie Monster aka Furseus is tested by a cow named Moodusa on his quest to reach Zeus at Mount Olympus Diner.

Jungle Boogie

Jungle Boogie

The Muppets’ Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem turn in a funktastic performance of the Kool and the Gang classic, accompanied by an unlikely performance by the typically stoic, frequently patriotic, always blue, Sam the Eagle.

The Muppets: First Look

20 Facts About the Muppets

20 Facts About the Muppets

Elliot Morgan of Mental Floss is visited by a couple of special guests to fill us in on some Muppet trivia, including the time that Kermit hosted the Tonight Show and SNL had Muppets. And we still don’t know the Swedish Chef’s name.

Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon

Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon

Sesame Street parodies this summer’s blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron, replacing our protagonists with a bunch of nutritionally-conscious heroes. Except for Cookie Monster. And Zuchin-eye is as useless as you’d expect.

Cookie Monster Unlunchboxing

Cookie Monster Unlunchboxing

Sesame Street pokes fun at the all to common internet video trend of walking us through the unboxing of items in ridiculous and unnecessary detail. It still amazes us that a character with such bad grammar is on an educational show.

Sesame Street: House of Bricks

Sesame Street: House of Bricks

The gang from Sesame Street takes on Netflix’s hit show House of Cards, replacing Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood with the evil Frank Underwolf, who wants to blow down the three little piggies’ white houses to make his way to the oval office.

Cookie Monster’s Shower Thoughts

The Muppets x Biz Markie

The Muppets x Biz Markie

Mylo the Cat took footage of The Muppets’ Rowlf the Dog and perfectly matched it with Biz Markie’s awesomely tone-deaf vocals from his 1989 hit track Just a Friend. Really, how can you not love Rowlf?

Hip Hop Hooray: Muppet Style

Hip Hop Hooray: Muppet Style

Editor Mylo the Cat did a brilliant job chopping up scenes of Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear and Beaker so it looks like they’re singing Naughty by Nature’s 1993 hip-hop-pop juggernaut, Hip Hop Hooray.
