Jim Henson was the mastermind behind The Muppets, which has been a staple of American children’s upbringing and development for decades. The coolest part about them is that they aren’t exclusively interesting to children. Grown-ups have found their absurdist, burlesque and self-referential style of variety-sketch comedy enthralling. Designer Mike BaBoon has created this comprehensive depiction of many memorable Muppet characters from throughout the years (and he even threw in some not-so-memorable ones as well). Whether you’ve been a fan of The Muppets since you were in diapers, or just beginning to enjoy them in their current incantation from their seventh movie, The Muppets (written by Jason Segel), this periodic table of Muppets is enjoyable for all generations of Muppets fans.

Each square represents a different character and indicates the primary Muppeteer(s) for that character, as well as the year and production in which the character made its debut. Borders align with hair/hat color, background aligns with skin/fur color, and color of the abbreviated name represents nose color (for characters with noses that is).

Check out more of Mike BaBoon’s work on his site, check out his prints and more at Redbubble & Society6, and follow him on his social channels: Facebook, Twitter, & Pinterest.

We’ve also included some of our favorite Muppet Labs videos featuring Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker — performing some not-so-excellent science experiments — to get you into the science mood.
