The exact definition of the franchise is fuzzy, as it can refer to either the whole thing including ''Series/SesameStreet'', ''Series/FraggleRock'' and ''Series/TheMuppetShow'', or just the latter and other shows and movies in its universe. Note that legally speaking, "The Muppets" now only refers to ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' characters owned by Disney, although Sesame Workshop has permission to use the term to refer to ''Series/SesameStreet'' characters. The ''Series/FraggleRock'' characters (still owned by the Henson company) were Muppets to start with, but are no longer referred to as such. For further details, see [[http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/What_is_a_Muppet Muppet Wiki]].
