The Muppets have been with us for half a century. Jim Henson's wonderful creations were charming TV audiences long before The Muppet Show kicked off in the mid-1970s. There were Muppets in dog food commercials, Muppets on The Ed Sullivan Show

In the decades since, Kermit and company have starred in numerous blockbuster films and subsequent television series. They have had cartoons and rides and Disneyworld.

So, how well do you know the Muppets? We're going to stick with the classics, characters who appeared mostly on The Muppet Show and the Muppets movies. Try your hand. A true Muppet lover should get at least eight correct. Good luck!
