Muppets Eating Other Muppets: Misc



Up to date as of February 02, 2010

From Muppet Wiki

Ever since the early days of Sam and Friends and Muppet commercials, there has been a long tradition of Muppet characters eating each other.

In the "Inchworm" sketch, which Jim Henson performed on many variety shows in the 1960s, Kermit the Frog would sit on a wall, eating passing worms. A Muppet monster would drag Kermit off the wall and then re-appear making a chewing motion, creating the illusion that Kermit was eaten whole.

For later sketches, a "slit" in the second Muppet's mouth was made so the eaten Muppet could be pulled through and, if necessary, performed from inside the second Muppet after being "eaten".
