Muppet

Up to date as of February 02, 2010

From Muppet Wiki

Monopoly is one of the best-selling commercial board games in the world. Players take turns moving around the board, and compete to acquire wealth through stylized economic activity involving the buying, rental and trading of properties using play money. The game is named after the economic concept of monopoly, the domination of a market by a single seller. It was first marketed by Parker Brothers in 1935.

Over the years, many specialty Monopoly editions have been licensed by Parker Brothers (and its parent company, Hasbro). From Star Wars to SpongeBob SquarePants, many pop-culture franchises have had the Monopoly treatment. Licensed Monopoly games have also been produced for many cities and colleges.

The Dinosaurs episode Life in the Faust Lane featured a similar game called "Monotony". However, while the Monopoly game board is usually a square-shaped game board, Monotony is an octagonal shape.

The title was spoofed as "Animalopoly" in The Treasure of Peg-Leg Wilson #3. However, while the one-page sequence is formated like a board game, it's not formated like Monopoly.
