Muppet Babies was a classic, Saturday morning cartoon that aired from 1984 to 1991 on CBS.
In addition to revisiting this cartoon version of the Muppets, we talk all things Smarties! How did Smarties get their name? Why are they shaped like pellets? You can buy them HERE and listen to find out more about their history!
Then, we discuss the history of the Muppet Babies, beginning with a small segment in The Muppets Take Manhattan, which you can watch below.
We watched the pilot episode as well as a season 3 episode. You can find both on YouTube through the playlist below! We also discuss the 2018 reboot, which you can find HERE on Disney Plus.
While we revisit the show, we talk about some of our memories of imaginative play. One of us had a jungle gym in their living room, and one of us built pillow forts throughout the entire house! But we both loved PipeWorks, pictured on the right, as well as building bricks, which you can still buy HERE!
So, does Muppet Babies hold up? Or did we ruin our childhoods? Tune in to find out!
Each week, we'll post the links to the shows and films we watched, so you can "play along at home."
