From Muppet Wiki
Fisher-Price produced a series of seven Muppet Show stick puppets in 1978.
The stick puppets can be considered the first Muppet action figures. Each figure comes with a stick that fits in a hole in the figure's back. The stick has the character's name on it.
The following characters were made:
- Kermit, articulated hips
- Miss Piggy, non-articulated finger puppet
- Fozzie, articulated hips
- Gonzo, holding a rose; movable neck, arms and legs
- Rowlf, articulated hips
- Animal, holding drumsticks; movable neck and arms
- Scooter, movable neck, arms and legs
The figures were sold separately. Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie and Rowlf were also available in a boxed set.
