Le Muppet Show is the French version of The Muppet Show. A dub of the complete original series, the program debuted in 1977 over France 2. The show also aired in Canada on TQS. A small troupe of veteran French voice actors performed nearly all of the roles, with the prolific Roger Carel (the French equivalent of Mel Blanc) as Kermit. Unlike the German or Italian dubs, the Swedish Chef remained untranslated, speaking his native mock-Swedish.

The success of the dub inspired the 1983 French puppet series Le Bébête Show, which combined the Muppet characters with the political satire of Spitting Image, resulting in "Kermitterand," a combination of Kermit and French President Francois Mitterand, and equally political versions of Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and Statler and Waldorf.

In 2005, a pilot, also titled Le Muppet Show, aired, for a series combining new live Muppet footage with French guest stars. The series was later retitled Muppet TV.
