Puppeteer Jim Henson’s Muppets have become an iconic part of American childhood. As part of the PBS network, the Muppets are a gentle cast of characters that teach children their ABCs, how to share, and how to love one another.
Created in the 1960s as part of the Children’s Broadcast Network, the show revolves around a mixed cast of human and puppet characters who populate the busy landscape of Sesame Street. The characters make friends, learn, and celebrate the joys of love and hope. Every week, children would join the neighborhood gang, including the soulful Kermit the Frog, the headstrong Miss Piggy, the gruff Oscar the Grouch, the youthful Elmo, the happy counting vampire The Count, the big-hearted and innocent Big Birth, and the joyful glutton Cookie Monster.
Odds are, these characters were a big part of your childhood and they will be a big part of your children’s lives. They were created with a keen understanding childhood development and are one of the best things for children in the media.
