Read on for more puppet TV shows like ‘The Muppet Show’. ~ Samar N
This article recommends an underrated title, a must-see title, an unknown title, an ‘if you like, you will like’ title and an unexpected title so you have different options when it comes to choosing your next movie to watch.
Conceived by Jim Henson, the show premiered a year after his death but stayed true to his wish to portray an average TV sitcom family, replacing humans with dinosaurs. Set in 60,000,003 BC in Pangaea (before the continents separated), the show uses clever prehistoric stand-ins to narrate coming-of-age dramas. (Charlene’s anxiety about being the only girl in her class who hadn’t grown her ‘tail’ yet was clearly a reference to puberty). The last episode tells the chilling story of an extinction caused by environmental damage, as the devastating long-term effects of tree-felling carried out by Earl and other dinosaurs for the Wesayso Corporation are finally irreversible.
A family of dinosaurs is just your average family.
Though not a puppet show, this series similar to ‘The Muppets’ has been hailed as one of the best-written satires in TV history, though it has often been criticized by conservatives and others offended by its brash humour. The Simpsons are a parody of American TV culture; they are a yellow, puppet-like, dysfunctional working class family living in the fictional town of Springfield.
A dysfunctional, puppet-like family often considered offensive.
Probably inspired by Jim Henson’s puppets, ‘Kolah Ghermezi’ is an Iranian kids show revolving around an eight year old boy who wears a red hat (after which he is named). Unabashedly childish, in the style of ‘Elmo’ from ‘Sesame Street’, Kolah Ghermezi is an unwitting prankster who speaks so fast his words are often indistinguishable; but gradually he learns to speak and behave properly from Mr. Presenter.
A puppet show about a boy who still speaks like a baby.
Though it merits an obvious comparison with the longest running American kids show, ‘Sesame Street’ – ‘The Muppet Show’ is really not for young children. But ‘Sesame Street’ does encourage co-viewing for kids and their families by appealing to older audiences with sophisticated humour, cultural references and celebrity guest appearances. Many of its classic characters have become household names – favourites such as Big Bird, Elmo, Kermit, Bert and Ernie, Cookie Monster, Count Von Count and Oscar the Grouch.
An educational kids muppet show the whole family will love.
A mockumentary that goes behind the scenes of a late night Muppet talk show received mixed reviews, as some criticized the very ‘adult’ content and others praised the idea to blend the muppets personal lives with the filming of ‘Up Late with Miss Piggy’, which supposedly aired after ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’.
The most 'adult' update to the Muppet brand.
Those are the shows I’d recommend if you’re looking for TV series like ‘The Muppets’. Stay tuned for more!
