Stop Ruining My Childhood!

Muppet Babies… And Smarties

April 28, 2022

Muppet Babies was a classic, Saturday morning cartoon that aired from 1984 to 1991 on CBS. After discussing the history of the Muppet Babies, beginning with a small segment in The Muppets Take Manhattan, we revisit the show and talk about some of our memories of imaginative play. One of us had a jungle gym in their living room, and one of us built pillow forts throughout the entire house!

In addition to revisiting this cartoon version of the Muppets, we talk all things Smarties! How did Smarties get their name? Why are they shaped like pellets? 

More importantly, does Muppet Babies hold up? Or did we ruin our childhoods? Tune in to find out!
