1978 Fisher Price Muppet Show Catalog

1978 muppet catalog

The Muppet Show was as much an ingrediant to a happy 70s childhood as were orange kitchens and pop rocks were. The UK Produced syndicated series was a complete smash and not surprisingly oodles of merchandising followed. Toymaker Fisher Price already knew the value of a Muppet, having produced Sesame Street items since the early 1970s released some of the most memorable Muppet show items..

The first series, of the figures: Kermit, Miss Piggie, Rolf and Fozzie were really cool to look at but were frustratingly under-articulated in a world where Star Wars action figures with five points of articulation were the gold standard. Essentially, the only action these characters could perform was bowing to an audience or somewhat awkwardly sitting down. The second series, with Gonzo, Scooter, and Animal, was a step up, both in terms of details and in terms of functionality as toys. Wish they'd continued this series. So many more characters they could have made.
