It’s time to start the music! It’s time to light the lights! It’s time to get things started…for the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast to discuss the Best Muppet Ever!
Jim Henson’s cuddly puppets have delighted audiences of all ages for five decades, on film, TV, in video games, and even — when it comes to pigs — in space! There have been dozens of named Muppets who have been introduced since then, and we want YOUR opinions on which are the Top 32, so we can discuss their Muppet merits on our podcast.
Below find a list of just about every notable named Muppet, in randomized order. (You can also find the survey here.) If you’re looking for a specific character, do a Ctrl + F and search by name. Note that we are keeping this strictly to Muppets — no Fraggle Rock, no Sesame Street characters, strictly characters that are part of the official Muppets franchise.
Did we miss your favorite? Add it in the field below and we may discuss it in the warm-up to this episode! Then send the poll to your friends and have them chime in on their favorite Muppet characters. The more votes we get, the better the debate!
The poll will run until Friday, January 22, 2021. Make sure to submit your answer by then!
The 32 top vote-getters will be discussed on Season 3 of the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast, debuting in March 2021. Check out our Episodes section to see which topics we’ve already tackled!
