They're goofy, they're energetic, they're lively - they are the Muppets, a group of puppet characters created by Jim Henson. The term "muppet" is both, a legal trademark and an informal name to the characters. Over the years, the Muppets has grown in scope and fun quotient with a lot of characters, representing humans, animals, robots, extra terrestrial beings, mythical beings, monsters, and newly imagined creatures, that have been later added to the show. Getting into the skins of The Muppets characters, literally, is one fine way of spending a clean and joyous Halloween day with your family and friends. Performing the crazy antics, by bringing out your "that side" of the personality, just as the characters do on the show will provide you and the people around you with laughter aplenty. Go through the list of Muppets characters and decide which one best suits your crazy side.
