Minimalist Muppets

As a general rule, I am a fan of minimalism. Add pop culture to that, and you just got your name put on my Christmas Card list! (Ed. Note - You're name will not actually be added to my Christmas Card list - unless you are my mother. Hi mom!)

There have been some really terrific Minimalist Movie Posters circulating the internet in the recent past, and I even did one of my own which I will probably be posting whenever I feel like it. (Planning ahead is for nerdz)

In the spirit of trying new things, I wanted to try some minimalism that wasn't a movie poster. Throw in my recent trip to the Jim Henson's Fantastic World exhibit at the Museum of Science & Industry, and the ever-expanding buzz around the new Jason Segel helmed Muppet Movie, and it was pretty much a no-brainer:



Minimalist Muppets.



(click image for full size)

Can you figure them all out? Well if you can't, it may be time to blow the dust off of your VHS copy of Muppet Treasure Island and pop that sucker in, (Ed. Note - An acceptable alternative to this would be the Muppet Christmas Carol) and feel free to use the cheat sheet below. (CHEATER!)

(L to R)
Row 1

Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear, Swedish Chef, Scooter, Waldorf, Statler, Rizzo the Rat

Row 2
Dr. Teeth, Zoot, Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Janice, Animal, Bunsen Honeydew, Beaker

Row 3
Sweetums, Sam the Eagle, Gonzo the Great, Camilla the Chicken, Miss Piggy, Rowlf the Dog

  1. Turns out the only one I wasn't really sure of was Miss Piggy. I knew it had to be her, but that's the only reason I got it right. Very interesting, but I hope they don't make a movie with these. lol
