Kermit is a small frog with a big heart. He’s a born entertainer – determined to make people happy through his singing, dancing and banjo playing. Having made his way from the lily pad to the limelight, Kermit is the leader of the Muppets and the founder of the Muppet Show. In The Muppets movie, Kermit is brought out of retirement to try and re-group the other Muppets and save their theatre from being torn down.
Miss Piggy would have you believe that she’s the leading lady of The Muppets. Model, singer, actress, dancer, fashionista, celebrity, karate expert and diva, Miss Piggy has plenty of attitude. She has a soft spot for Kermit, so when asked to leave her role as Plus-size Editor of Paris Vogue to rejoin the Muppet mob, she agrees after he persuades her.
Orange and fuzzy, Fozzie is a bear who has dreams of stand-up stardom. He tells his very particular type of joke (mostly unfunny) - even when he's facing ridicule from hecklers Statler and Waldorf. His trademarks are his brown hat, polka-dot necktie and 'wocka wocka' catchphrase.
Wild in every sense of the word, Animal is the ultimate rock’n’roller. A drummer with Dr. Teeth’s Electric Mayhem Band, Animal always struggled to manage his temper. In The Muppets, we find him receiving treatment for his anger issues. Whilst the ‘Bunny Therapy’ seems to help to calm him down, Animal is not entirely happy with his new peaceful persona. At heart he is happiest whilst making some noise on his drums.
The eloquent Dr Bunsen Honeydew is the founder of ‘Muppet Labs’ and the inventor of the Banana Sharpener, the Electric Nose Warmer and the Gorilla Detector to name but a few. A busy scientist and pioneer, Bunsen enlisted the help of Beaker to assist him with his experiments. Beaker is extremely shy and only manages to speak in ‘meeps’ rather than actual words. During his time as Lab Assistant, Beaker has been blown up, electrocuted and eaten by monsters. It’s no wonder he’s so nervous.
Gonzo is also known as Gonzo the Great. He is a true artiste - trumpet player, photographer, plumbing magnate and chicken-whisperer, Gonzo is the original can-do Muppet. He doesn't need much persuasion to dust off his cannonball catching outfit and go back to the Muppet Theatre with Kermit and the gang.
