50 Muppets and their real-life acting counterparts


31st May 2011

Have you heard? There's a new Muppets movie in town! But before Kermit and his fuzzy companions hit the big screen, we thought we'd have a bit of fun matching up Muppets with their real-life acting doubles, and these were the results...

According to the Muppet Wiki there are over 2,500 Muppets spanning the late Jim Henson's insane Universe. Obviously we can't cover them all (we'd love to) so we're sticking to those appearing in just The Muppet Show and Muppet movies. Some are old, some fairly new, but all are memorable in their own unique way. Hope you enjoy - see you in the comments section for drinks and debate over where we went wrong.
