A new muppet is joining Sesame Street’s ranks. Her name is Julia, and she has autism.
Miss Piggy, domesticated swine superstar and former partner of a sad amphibian named Kermit, would like her fans to know that she does not need a man in her life. And though, yes, she is technically a puppet incapable of speaking, moving, or fucking—she literally needs a man (she’s performed by one named Eric Jacobsen…
Seriously, I’m asking, because I don’t know the answer. It’s not that the jokes aren’t funny—some of them were super funny, although last night’s series premiere was definitely hit and miss. It’s more that this whole concept is just wrong for the freaking Muppets. And then there’s Miss Piggy. Sigh.
The perpetually outraged anti-gay, anti-fun group One Million Moms has returned from the swoon they fell into upon seeing a yogurt ad with lesbians in it, and they wish to warn you, the concerned parents of America, that the Muppets are no longer what they seem. They’re sexier. They’re having sex.
The summer of 2015 has been filled with celebrity breakups and the deconstructed portmanteaus that follow. In the past 24 hours alone, we’ve seen the end of Gwavin, Rebarvel, and Zerrie. And now, as though the dead horse of love hasn’t been beaten enough this season, ageless felt icons Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog…
It’s mad early in the year to be thinking about fall TV, I know. But the whole point of May Upfronts—where networks preview their upcoming programs—is for advertisers and critics (and all you lowly viewers) to get a taste of the best and trashiest shows guaranteed to be on television for decades.
Already a world-famous actress, published author, fashion queen and karate black belt, the one and only Miss Piggy can now add the title of feminist icon to her resume. The Renaissance Muppet is the latest to be honored by the Brooklyn Museum’s Sackler Center with a First Award, which celebrates female trailblazers.…
Caroll Spinney, the 80-year-old man behind Sesame Street's Big Bird and Oscar, is finally getting his moment in the limelight with the documentary I Am Big Bird. The film is set to hit theaters on May 6th and what the fuck? What is happening to my face? Water. Water emerging from my eyes in an unstoppable waterfall of…
This is completely wrong. All of it. So, so, wrong.
How is everyone's Wednesday? Are you having a good day? Anyone in need of a Muppets video? I thought so!
Mad Men and 90's dating show star Jon Hamm continued his reign of almost disgusting handsomeness during his most recent visit to Sesame Street. This time, he taught one of the show's resident Muppets about emotions.
Don't get us wrong. We love The Muppets. Everybody loves the Muppets. But we love some Muppets more than others, because some Muppets are better than others, while some made us groan whenever they appeared on-screen. Here are a dozen Muppets that completely suck felt.
NAILED IT. After listening to this, I now, finally understand what curling is and how it works. Also, if you listen closely, the Swedish Chef also explained quantum physics, and now I totally am a master of that as well.
After years of very publicly attempting to drag Kermit the Frog down the aisle, it looks like Miss Piggy will finally get her heart's desire in Muppets Most Wanted. There'll be a wedding at the Tower of London, where she'll wear a gown specially designed by Vivienne Westwood.
The game is on: Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch does some super-sleuthing in this PBS clip, with a little help from some famous friends. Counterbatch! To be honest, the allegedly perplexing puzzle is rather elementary, but what it lacks in difficulty it makes up for in cute.

Shut the whole thing down! The internet has FINALLY agreed on something. Surely this must mean a rip in space-time continuum or something, right? Or maybe it just means a new Muppet movie is on its way and everyone is stoked about it.
In advance of The Muppets' Most Wanted, Muppets Studio has released the bite-sized webisode "Food Fight," in which the Swedish Chef pits his culinary skills against Gordon Ramsay in a reality show-inspired food truck competition. And naturally, our favorite Muppet critics are serving up their judgment with a side of…
Oh no. This is not happy news. Lady Gaga's Thanksgiving Special with the Muppets did not do as well as expected in the ratings, despite guest appearances from stars such as Sir Elton John and my secret imaginary dream mother, Ru Paul.
Not really. They're both quite chipper. And completely adorable. Sigh.
