"muppets" (lower-case m) means all the puppets in Jim Henson productions. So Fraggles are muppets, Ernie & Bert are muppets, Kermit is a muppet.

"Muppets" (upper-case M) means specifically the characters on The Muppet Show (and in the various Muppet movies).

I am not trying to be rude, please don't think that I am but Disney actually owns the word Muppet too whether capitalized or not. Jim Henson Company even made a commercial that makes fun of that issue to promote their show Stuffed and Unstrung.

On a different note, I didn't add Stuffed and Unstrung to my favorites list on the questionnaire because it is a live show but I wish I had. If anybody has some time, I suggest watching some of the clips on youtube. The show also went by the name Puppet Up. Its a live improv show done with Jim Henson puppets and adult humor.

TMNT? How funny! I just unearth a pattern for a full body TMNT hand puppet and was looking for an excuse to make one, also have a grip of sesame street patterns and also love to ad lib a lot. Guess I will reconsider joining. As long as my partner to be likes crochet or poppet style dolls. Think the problem up here has been the upcomimg full moon.Makes us all a bit catty

According to this site our options are many!!
http://henson.com/
The following are quotes from the site


Sesame Street
The Jim Henson Company created the original characters from Sesame Street, including Big Bird, Elmo, Ernie & Bert, Oscar the Grouch, Grover, Cookie Monster, Harry Monster, the Yip Yips, the Count, Rosita, Zoe, Snuffulupagus, Barkley and many more. In 2001, the rights to these characters were sold to Sesame Workshop.

As it has since the shows debut in 1969, The Jim Henson Company still creates and builds the puppets used on Sesame Street, but those characters and the show itself are actually owned and run by Sesame Workshop.

Bear in the Big Blue House
In February of 2004, The Walt Disney Company and The Jim Henson Company signed an agreement for Disney to buy the "Muppets" and "Bear in the Big Blue House" franchises, including all worldwide production, distribution and merchandising rights. All inquiries regarding Muppets and Bear in the Big Blue House should now be directed to The Walt Disney Company.


The family shows are listed here

TMNT is it's own thing, BUT TMNT2: Secret of the Ooze had Jim Henson on the credits.
