The Cutest Muppets, Ranked

We’re ranking the cutest Muppets of all time. From kid-friendly TV shows to countless movies, including Muppet Treasure Island and The Muppet Christmas Carol, Jim Henson’s Muppets have been entertaining families for years. Which character do you think is the cutest?

Though Kermit and Miss Piggy may be among the most popular, there are oodles of other Muppets to consider. Rizzo the Rat loves cracking jokes, but he’s at his best when he’s teaming up with his old pal Gonzo. Beaker’s a super smart scientist who also happens to be adorable, and Fozzie is a furry bear with a heart of gold. And we can't forget about Animal, the Muppet who loves making a mess but is also a pretty rad drummer. With so many cute Muppets on this list, it’ll be interesting to see who comes out on top. 

Be sure to vote up all the cute Muppets, and add your own characters if they’re missing from the list.
