It's time to play the music. It's time to light the lights… Four decades later, the Muppets continue to delight. This June marks the 41st anniversary of The Muppet Movie, which took Jim Henson's creations from television to the big screen. 

Just about all of the Muppets below appeared in the film. The others are quirky favorites. See if you can remember their names! Good luck!
  1. This wild and crazy drummer is a fan favorite.

12 out of 12! Now please say The Muppet Show is coming to MeTV! There's only so much MASH and Hogan's Heroes a person can take.

Impressive! You probably carried a Muppet lunch box to school.
I was never very good at remembering names--not even "MUPPET" names.

12 out of 12. I am a king-size dork when it comes to The Muppets. Now if only MeTV would/could start showing the original Muppet Show that would great. It's not like Disney is doing much with them these days... just sayin'.
